Gary Snyder

Turtle Island


A Pulitzer Prize-winning collection of poetry by the Beat-Buddhist poet Gary Snyder. Containing nearly five dozen poems revolved around the theme of becoming native to place – place in this instance being Turtle Island (also known as North America). With utter lucidity and occasional frankly political poignancy, Snyder comfortably weaves the ecological, dharmic, and anarchoprimitivist parts of himself into inspiring and concise poetic texts.

Soft cover.
