The Literary Art and Activism of Rick Bass
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungIn his Controversial 1998 book Fiber, Rick Bass introduced a troubling dilemma of the literary artist and activist: How can any writer engage in celebration of the natural world in the face of environmental degradation? Perhaps, Bass speculated, the "activist is the artist's ashes", the identity that emerges finally from the charred remains of a "pure" devotion to the art of nature writing. In The Literary Art and Activism of Rick Bass, the first comprehensive collection of literary criticism to address Bass's work, fifteen scholars elucidate the development of social, political, and personal issues in Bass's fiction and nonfiction.
