Summary
"Drawing on recent studies in cultural geography, environmental history, and mythology, as well as literary criticism, The Midwestern Pastoral: Place and Landscape in Literature of the American Heartland relates Midwestern pastoral writers to their local geographies and explains their approaches. William Barillas treats five important Midwestern pastoralists - Willa Cather, Aldo Leopold, Theodore Roethke, James Wright, and Jim Harrison - in separate chapters. He also discusses Jane Smiley, U.S. Poet Laureate Ted Kooser, Paul Gruchow, and others." "For these writers, the aim of writing is not merely intellectual and aesthetic, but democratic and ecological. In depicting and promoting commitment to local communities, human and natural, they express their love for, their understanding of, and their sense of place in the American Midwest." "Students and serious readers, as well as scholars in the growing field of literature and the environment, will appreciate this study of writers who counter placelessness and materialism in modern society."--Jacket
