Tracing connections between Gary Snyder and his Romantic and Transcendentalist predecessors - Wordsworth, Blake, Emerson, Whitman, and Thoreau - this book explores the tension between urbanization and over-industrialization. Paige Tovey evaluates the eco-poetic workings of what Snyder himself calls "cross-fertilizations" and argues that his poetry reworks British Romantic as well as American Transcendentalist and modernist ideas and forms. This study examines the ways in which Snyder negotiates the urban and the natural, and traces the history of the Eco-Romantic poetic tradition as it is disseminated from 'Old World' to 'New World' across the Atlantic. Here, the Romantic ecopoetic tradition finds new life in Pulitzer Prize-winner Gary Snyder's poetry and poetics; and the dialectical relationship between Snyder and his predecessors reminds readers that nature is never a simple concept.

About the Author:

Paige Tovey holds a PhD in English Literary Studies from Durham University, UK where she was the recipient of a MHRA Research Associateship (2010-2012) within the Department of English. She has published on subjects ranging from the influence of Alexander Pope on Percy Bysshe Shelley to the post-Romantic poetic form of Gary Snyder.

Review:

"Paige Tovey's lucid study places Gary Snyder convincingly within an Anglo-American Romantic inheritance. Alert equally to continuities and differences, she enriches our sense both of Snyder's complexities and of the extraordinary suggestiveness of the great authors who stand behind him." - Seamus Perry, Fellow of Balliol College, University of Oxford, UK

"This lively but also scholarly book shows why we should think again about Gary Snyder. It productively enlarges our sense of the contexts with which his work engages, while offering impressively perceptive readings of individual poems." - Tony Sharpe, Senior Lecturer, Lancaster University, UK
