Herald of the New Agrarianism
This chapter discusses Wendell Berry, a poet who includes agricultural themes in his poems. He is described as a writer of many parts, and as an essayist, Berry can be a polemicist of rather frightening skill. As a poet, Berry is forced to be brief, but his genius can distill the truth of an entire book into one ingenious poem like Farming: A Hand Book's “A Standing Ground”. The discussion also indicates the similarities between Berry and the author, and includes some excerpts from Berry's works.
