From Origin to Ecology: Nature and the Poetry of W.S. Merwin

Front Cover
Fairleigh Dickinson Univ Press, 1999 - Literary Criticism - 138 pages
"Frazier examines Merwin's poetry with regard to ecocriticism, anthropology, Merwin's fellow poets, Merwin criticism, and his own essays and interviews. Of central importance is Merwin's indebtedness to Henry David Thoreau, his sense that Thoreau guided American writing in a new direction whereby nature could be seen as something of value for itself."--BOOK JACKET.
