(p.1) Introduction
The Achievement of Wendell Berry

Fritz Oehlschlaeger

University Press of Kentucky

Wendell Berry has become a major voice in the argument for a new agrarianism. It is argued that he passes the moral test he sets for himself: nothing that he has written “countenances” the misuse, the reduction to mere means, of the people or places he treats. This book is organized by genre and topic. The first three chapters focus primarily on Berry's nonfiction. Chapters 4 through 6 consider Berry's fiction, each focusing on an individual genre. The last chapter investigates Berry's thoughts on the unspecializing of poetry.

Keywords:   Wendell Berry, agrarianism, nonfiction, fiction, poetry
