An Evening with Gary Snyder
Whiteside Theatre
Corvallis, OR
Share this event:

Gary Snyder, the Pulitzer prize-winning poet and essayist whose work is deeply-rooted in the landscapes of the Pacific Northwest, will read from his work on Friday, October 26, 7:30 p.m., at the Whiteside Theatre, 361 SW Madison St. Corvallis.  The reading is co-sponsored by the OSU Visiting Writers Series and the Spring Creek Project for Ideas, Nature, and the Written Word.

Mr. Snyder's work has influenced many of the most dramatic literary and cultural movements of the past fifty years. A long-time Buddhist practitioner, avid outdoorsman, and environmental thinker, Snyder has worked to articulate the relationship of humans to the whole of nature. He has been instrumental in inspiring the ideas of the Reinhabitation Movement, and was an early presence and inspiration for the Beat movement. Jack Kerouac's novel, Dharma Bums, was based on his encounters with Snyder.

Gary Snyder has published 16 books of poetry and prose, including Danger on Peaks, No Nature: New and Selected Poems, which was a finalist for the National Book Award; Axe Handles, for which he received an American Book Award; and Turtle Island, which won the Pulitzer Prize for poetry.

Of Snyder's accomplishments, critic Leon Borensztein has written, "While Snyder has gained attention as a spokesman for the preservation of the natural world and its earth-conscious cultures, he is not simply a "back-to-nature" poet with a facile message. Kenneth Rexroth observed that although Snyder proposes "a new ethic, a new esthetic, [and] a new life style," he is also "an accomplished technician who has learned from the poetry of several languages and who has developed a sure and flexible style capable of handling any material he wishes."

Mr. Snyder's visit is part of the Long-Term Ecological Reflections program, co-sponsored by the Spring Creek Project and the U.S. Forest Service. The Visiting Writers Series is supported by the OSU Department of English, the Valley Library, the Office of the Provost, the College of Liberal Arts, Kathy Brisker and Tim Steele.
