Sintesi dell'editore

Farmer, ecologist, and writer Berry provides some rich and fertile ground for recreating life and culture. He speaks of enduring values, the wholeness of life and the interdependence of all creatures, especially humankind. Berry's self-discipline, ethical sense and human compassion come through as he leads us from the microcosm of his Kentucky hill farm to the macrocosm of a sane and reasoned planetary vision based on personal integrity, faithfulness, and love.

Wendell Berry is the author of many books including Standing By Words (North Point Press 1983), The Gift of Good Land (North Point Press 1981), Collected Poems: 1957-1982 (North Point Press 1985), Nathan Coulter (North Point Press 1985), What People Are For ( 1991), The Art of the Commonplace: The Agrarian Essays of Wendell Berry (Shoemaker & Hoard 2003), and The Way of Ignorance: And Other Essays (Shoemaker & Hoard 2006).

Old Interview without the usual Berry inspiration

If you’ve listened to books by Wendell Berry before, how does this one compare?

This interview is from the 80s and just doesn't have much to it. Berry's work usually has deep insights and perspectives I have never considered before. This interview does not.

An introduction to the thinking of Wendell Berry

This brief interview adequately acquaints listeners with the thinking of Wendell Berry. A good starting point for his eclectic practical philosophy.

Agriculture losing its soil and its way

Derived from a radio interview, the piece starts disconcertingly with a long piece of American country music. After this overlong prelude we get down to business. Wendell Berry issue not a slick word-spinner, but is quite the antithesis of facile gilded-tongued content-free politicians. His comments come haltingly at times, and he really only hits pace towards the end of the recording when talking about the haemorrhage of people from America's small farms since the 1940s and why this is a disaster. His answers are measured, thoughtful and honest. This man has something to say which is very much worth listening to.
