9781564784599: The Walk: Notes on a Romantic Image

"The Walk," a meditation on walking and on the literature of walking, ruminates on this pervasive, even commonplace, modern image. It is not so much an argument as a journey along the path of literature, noting the occasions and settings, the pleasures and possibilities of different types of walking--through the country or city, during day or night, alone or with someone--and the literatures--the poems, essays, stories, novels, and diaries--walking has produced.

Jeffrey C. Robinson's discussion is less criticism than appreciation: with an autobiographical bent, he leads the reader through Romantic, modern, and contemporary literature to show us the shared pleasures of reading, writing, and walking.

About the Author:

Robinson has published widely in Romantic Studies. He is co-editor, along with Jerome Rothenberg, of Poems for the Millennium, Volume Three: The University of California Book of Romantic and Post-Romantic Poetry. A winner of Guggenheim and NEH fellowships, he has taught at the University of Colorado in Boulder since 1971.

Review:

"Jeffrey C . Robinson's The Walk is a lively and intelligent omnibus for thinkers as well as for walkers. His evident love of literature is a genuine enthusiasm for all that is best in life." --Annie Dillard

"An elegant and eloquent persuasion to abandon the automobile." --Marilyn Krysl
