About this title


"A magnificent achievement. . . . A major work by a venerable master". Publishers Weekly

"The story not only of one man, but also of the human event on this planet". San Francisco Chronicle

Forty years in the writing, Gary Snyder's long-awaited epic poem appears for the first time in its entirety in this volume. Initially inspired by East Asian landscape painting and his own experience within "a chaotic universe where everything is in place", Snyder travels beyond the Western tradition in this work to encompass Asian art and drama, Native American performance and storytelling, the practice of Zen Buddhism, and varied landscapes all over the world. Mountains and Rivers will stand as a major work of American poetry.

Product Description:

While a few selections from Snyder's journal poem Mountains and Rivers Without End have been published since it was begun in the 1950s, the completed work appears for the first time in this volume. Like a scroll unrolling the broad landscape of Snyder's travels, Mountains and Rivers will stand alongside Whitman's Leaves of Grass, Pound's Cantos, and Williams's Paterson as an ideal of the long poem in American English.
