Book Description :

Pilgrim at Tinker Creek has continued to change people's lives for over thirty years. A passionate and poetic reflection on the mystery of creation with its beauty on the one hand and cruelty on the other, it has become a modern American literary classic in the tradition of Thoreau. Living in solitude in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Roanoke, Virginia, and observing the changing seasons, the flora and fauna, the author reflects on the nature of creation and of the God who set it in motion. Whether the images are cruel or lovely, the language is memorably beautiful and poetic, and insistently celebratory. Just pay attention, Dillard urges throughout, and you will find yourself 'sailing headlong and breathless under the gale force of the spirit'.

Book Description :

"Annie Dillard's reputation as one of America's outstanding essayists was established with Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1975 and was hailed as a masterpiece in the tradition of Thoreau's Walden. Dillard's writing is directly descended from the transcendentalists, but her essays address contemporary issues ranging from theology, philosophy', aesthetics, and history to community, memory, imagination, and spirituality. She has published six prose books since Pilgrim at Tinker Greek, among them Teaching a Stone to Talk, Living by Fiction, and The Writing Life." "In Annie Dillard Linda L. Smith provides an essential framework for the study of Dillard's life and writings. Smith lucidly traces the major themes in Dillard's work, notably her attempt to reconcile life's beauty with its horror, her concern with every aspect of consciousness, and her meditation on how life should be lived in the face of suffering and death. Inherent in all Dillard's work, Smith argues, is a return to spiritual concerns and a preoccupation with the nature of human consciousness, both beautifully expressed in an inimitable style. In emphasizing Dillard's vision of the natural and spiritual worlds, Smith provides a new appreciation of Dillard's lasting achievements, as well as an inspiring introduction to one of America's most talented and invigorating stylists."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Living by Fiction is written for--and dedicated to--people who love literature. Dealing with writers such as Nabokov, Barth, Coover, Pynchon, Borges, García Márquez, Beckett, and Calvino, Annie Dillard shows why fiction matters and how it can reveal more of the modern world and modern thinking than all the academic sciences combined. Like Joyce Cary's Art and Reality, this is a book by a writer on the issues raised by the art of literature.

Book Description :

National Bestseller "Beautifully written and delightfully strange...as earthy as it is sublime...in the truest sense, an eye-opener." --Daily News From Annie Dillard, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Pilgrim at Tinker Creek and one of the most compelling writers of our time, comes For the Time Being, her most profound narrative to date. With her keen eye, penchant for paradox, and yearning for truth, Dillard renews our ability to discover wonder in life's smallest--and often darkest--corners. Why do we exist? Where did we come from? How can one person matter? Dillard searches for answers in a powerful array of images: pictures of bird-headed dwarfs in the standard reference of human birth defects; ten thousand terra-cotta figures fashioned for a Chinese emperor in place of the human court that might have followed him into death; the paleontologist and theologian Teilhard de Chardin crossing the Gobi Desert; the dizzying variety of clouds. Vivid, eloquent, haunting, For the Time Being evokes no less than the terrifying grandeur of all that remains tantalizingly and troublingly beyond our understanding. "Stimulating, humbling, original--. [Dillard] illuminate[s] the human perspective of the world, past, present and future, and the individual's relatively inconsequential but ever so unique place in it."--Rocky Mountain News

Book Description :

In 1975 Annie Dillard took up residence on an island in Puget Sound in a wooden room - one enormous window, one cat, one spider and one person. For the next two years she asked herself questions about time, reality, sacrifice and death. In Holy the Firm she writes about a moth consumed in a candle flame, about a seven-year-old girl burned in an aeroplane accident, about a baptism on a cold beach. But behind the moving curtain of what she calls 'the hard things - rock mountain and salt sea', she sees, sometimes far off and sometimes as close by as a veil or air, the power play of holy fire. Holy the Firm is a profound and breath-taking book about the natural world by a Pulitzer Prize winner and one of the most influential figures in contemporary non-fiction.
