Pilgrim at Tinker Creek af Annie Dillard (1974)

  1. 20
    Walden eller Livet i skovene af Henry David Thoreau (emydid)
    emydid: Dillard was very much influenced by Thoreau (she did her master's thesis on Walden), and both Pilgrim at Tinker Creek and Walden have similar narrative structures. Both books follow their narrator through the course of a year, and both weave detailed observations of the natural world together with self-examination and statements of a personal worldview. Annie Dillard's concerns are more explicitly theological, while Thoreau tends to be more concerned with the relationship between the individual and society - but both of their books are beautifully-written, densely symbolic investigations into the relationship between the self, nature, and the spiritual. It's interesting to think about the links and contrasts between the two books - for example, between Dillard's idea of "seeing" and Thoreau's reflections on self-exploration and awareness.… (mere)

    The Forest Unseen: A Year's Watch in Nature af David George Haskell (danhammang)
    danhammang: Love of the land, celebration of the natural world written by one of the finest authors of this generation.

    In Earshot of Water: Notes from the Columbia Plateau af Paul Lindholdt (bezoar44)
    bezoar44: These authors share some of the same fearless introspection; and while both study the natural world, it is in some ways just a (vital) context in which to explore what it means to live meaningfully.

“What do we think of the created universe, spanning an unthinkable void with an unthinkable profusion of forms?”

“Mystery itself is as fringed and intricate as the shape of the air in time.”

“The answer must be, I think, that beauty and grace are performed whether or not we will or sense them. The least we can do is try to be there.” ( )

word of advice: consider reading this book a single chapter a sitting... put it down, come back to it later. It may be under 300pgs but spread it over a whole season and you'll absorb more of it.

For a near 200 pages I was under its spell, but then strangely I wanted to be done with it. I grew weary and anxious from the seemingly increasing heavy leaning on the biblical. I get the desire to want to assimilate all that you're reading and learning into the task at hand, such as writing this book... but it begins to batter you with her attempt at finding-god-through-nature obsession. I was relieved to read in the afterward this: "I'm afraid I suffered youths drawback, too: a love of grand sentences, and fancied a grand sentence was not quite done until it was overdone."
Still, a beautiful book, an intelligent mind at work... just don't "hit the wall" by trying to read too much to fast. ( )

I loved this book, and I read it at exactly the right time in my life. This book doesn't have a narrative, it is more a collection of observations and philosophy. Pilgrim at Tinker Creek is beautifully written, and refreshed my appreciation of the natural world ( )

Annie Dillard is, of course, an outstanding writer, and i can add nothing to the praise this book has garnered.

What i can do is rave about the audiobook version of this great book. If ever a book was written that is even better being read aloud than silently, this is it. The narrator does a great job and the book just flows. Let me put it this way. I could listen to this book being read aloud for hours upon hours, over and over again. The author crafts words to express wonder, nature, theology, philosophy, beauty and more and the words just flow. She even makes the intricacies and grossness of insects sound interesting.

Get the audio CD's from your library or buy the audiobook from audible.com. You won't be sorry. ( )

I used to have a cat, an old fighting tom, who would jump through the open window by my bed in the middle of the night and land on my chest.
[Afterword] In October, 1972, camping in Acadia National Park on the Maine coast, I read a nature book.
[More Years Afterword] I was twenty-seven in 1972 when I began writing Pilgrim at Tinker Creek.

Not only does something come if you wait, but it pours over you like a waterfall, a tidal wave. You wait in all naturalness without expectation or hope, emptied, translucent, and that which comes rocks and topples you; it will shear, loose, launch, winnow, grind.
