The Back Country: Poems.
by Snyder, Gary.

Publisher Information:
Fulcrum,, London:: 1967..

A Fine tight copy in a Fine, bright price-clipped dust jacket. This English edition preceded the US edition published by New Directions. This collection is made up of four sections: poems of the Western mountain country where, as a young man. Gary Snyder worked as a logger and forest ranger; poems written between 1956 and 1964 in Japan where he studied Zen at the monastery in Kyoto; poems inspired by a visit to India and his reading of Indian religious texts, particularly those of Shivaism and Tibetan Buddhism; and poems done on his return to this country in 1964 which look again at our West with the eyes of India and Japan. The title, The Back Country, has three major associations; wilderness. the "backward" countries, and the “back country" of the mind with its levels of being in the unconscious.
