📒Pilgrim At Tinker Creek ✍ Annie Dillard
✏Pilgrim at Tinker Creek Book Summary : Pilgrim at Tinker Creek has continued to change people's lives for over thirty years. A passionate and poetic reflection on the mystery of creation with its beauty on the one hand and cruelty on the other, it has become a modern American literary classic in the tradition of Thoreau. Living in solitude in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Roanoke, Virginia, and observing the changing seasons, the flora and fauna, the author reflects on the nature of creation and of the God who set it in motion. Whether the images are cruel or lovely, the language is memorably beautiful and poetic, and insistently celebratory. Just pay attention, Dillard urges throughout, and you will find yourself 'sailing headlong and breathless under the gale force of the spirit'.

📒The Truth Of Ecology ✍ Dana Phillips
✏The Truth of Ecology Book Summary : The Truth of Ecology is a wide-ranging, polemical appraisal of contemporary environmental thought. Focusing on the new field of ecocriticism from a thoroughly interdisciplinary perspective, this book explores topics as diverse as the history of ecology in the United States; the distortions of popular environmental thought; the influence of Critical Theory on radical science studies and radical ecology; the need for greater theoretical sophistication in ecocriticism; the contradictions of contemporary American nature writing; and the possibilities for a less devotional, "wilder" approach to ecocritical and environmental thinking. Taking his cues from Thoreau, Stevens, and Ammons, from Wittgenstein, Barthes and Eco, from Bruno Latour and Michel Serres, from the philosophers Rorty, Hacking, and Dennett, and from the biologists Ernst Mayr and Stephen Jay Gould, author Dana Phillips emphasizes an eclectic but pragmatic approach to a variety of topics. His subject matter includes the doctrine of social construction; the question of what it means to be interdisciplinary; the disparity between scientific and literary versions of realism; the difficulty of resolving the tension between facts and values, or more broadly, between nature and culture; the American obsession with personal experience; and the intellectual challenges posed by natural history. Those challenges range from the near-impossibility of defining ecological concepts with precision to the complications that arise when a birder tries to identify chickadees in poor light on a winter's afternoon in the Poconos.
📒Annie Dillard ✍ Linda L. Smith
✏Annie Dillard Book Summary : Annie Dillard's reputation as one of America's outstanding essayists was established with Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1975 and was hailed as a masterpiece in the tradition of Thoreau's Walden. Dillard's writing is directly descended from the transcendentalists, but her essays address contemporary issues ranging from theology, philosophy', aesthetics, and history to community, memory, imagination, and spirituality. She has published six prose books since Pilgrim at Tinker Greek, among them Teaching a Stone to Talk, Living by Fiction, and The Writing Life. In Annie Dillard Linda L. Smith provides an essential framework for the study of Dillard's life and writings. Smith lucidly traces the major themes in Dillard's work, notably her attempt to reconcile life's beauty with its horror, her concern with every aspect of consciousness, and her meditation on how life should be lived in the face of suffering and death. Inherent in all Dillard's work, Smith argues, is a return to spiritual concerns and a preoccupation with the nature of human consciousness, both beautifully expressed in an inimitable style. In emphasizing Dillard's vision of the natural and spiritual worlds, Smith provides a new appreciation of Dillard's lasting achievements, as well as an inspiring introduction to one of America's most talented and invigorating stylists.
