									Imagination in Place
Author: Wendell Berry
Description

In Imagination in Place, we travel to the local cultures of several writers important to Berry's life and work,
from Wallace Stegner's great West and Ernest Gaines' Louisiana plantation life to Donald Hall's New
England, and on to the Western frontier as seen through the Far East lens of Gary Snyder. Berry laments
today's dispossessed and displaced, those writers and people with no home and no citizenship, but he
argues that there is hope for the establishment of new local cultures in both the practical and literary
sense.
