Genesis, Structure, and Meaning in Gary Snyder's Mountains and Rivers Without End Synopsis

When Gary Snyder's long poem Mountains and Rivers Without End was published in 1996, it was hailed as a masterpiece of American poetry, yet it has not hitherto been the subject of a book-length critical study. Hunt offers a detailed historical and explicative analysis of this complex work using, among his many sources, Snyder's personal papers, letters, and interviews.

Genesis, Structure, and Meaning in Gary Snyder's Mountains and Rivers Without End Press Reviews

Suggestive, and rich in lore and ideas. These are informed, playful, creative commentaries that don't impose themselves on the text, but complement it. -Gary Snyder
