From Library Journal
This unique, scholarly collection of essays painstakingly examines the writing of Thoreau, comparing him with other environmental writers and stressing literary scholarship within environmental studies. In this lofty collection of essays edited by Schneider (English, Wartburg Coll.), critics and followers of Thoreau break apart his writing to investigate, word by word, the biocentric and anthropocentric nature of his works. The collection emphasizes four distinct themes on place: relating, imagining, socially constructing, and saving. It compares Thoreau!s writing to that of such other authors as Annie Dillard and Edward Abbey. Fascinating discourses compare the poetry of Wendell Berry as well as the paintings of the first generation of the Hudson River School of landscape painters. Recommended for academic libraries."Joyce Sparrow, Juvenile Welfare Board Lib., Pinellas Park, FL
