Synopsis
Award-winner Wendell Berry’s second collection of essays was first published in 1972, and contained eight essays, including the seminal “Think Little,” which was printed in The Last Whole Earth Catalogue and reprinted around the globe. The splendid centerpiece of A Continuous Harmony, “Discipline and Hope,” is an insightful and articulate essay of instruction and caution. This volume contains original content, with only slight revisions as might be desired. It gives readers the opportunity to read the work of this remarkable cultural critic and agrarian, and to delight in the prose of one of America’s greatest stylists.
Amazon.com Review
Wendell Berry, a Kentucky farmer and poet, may look like a Southern gentleman of conservative bearing, but in truth he stands among the foremost radical writers of our time: opposed to the dominant order, but, more important, radical in the primary sense, one who advocates a return to the source, the root, the old ways, in this case, of farming and living on the land. In The Unsettling of America and its companion volumes A Continuous Harmony and The Gift of Good Land, Berry discusses how rural communities can be made and maintained, how an ethic of wise land use can replace the dominant thinking of our present food-as-commodity economics. Berry has been accused of being an impractical romantic, but after reading his books you're likely to think that his ideas are well worth a try.
