Characters Wendell Berry and the Cultivation of Life A Readers Guide Free read æ Wendell Berry and the Cultivation of Life A Readers Guide 108 Both conservative and progressive circles Wendell Berry and the Cultivation of Life thoroughly examines Berry's main themes of community place and conservation It offers an apology for the power of Berry's vision and the ways in which. This book creates something of a paradox in that attempts to systematize Wendell Berry s diverse and certainly non systematic writing into something of a coherent whole Thankfully the authors admit the futility of this project and don t therefore insist on some machine like system by which we can interpret the essayistpoetnovelist Rather the authors settle on a broad theme of Berry s work within which they then seek to investigate a variety of paths coming off of that initial themeThe broad theme involves living life together in local communities From that basic starting point the authors take a closer look at Berry s critiue of the modern abstractionist world the elements in Berry s work that make up real healthy communities the practices that individuals help to lead away from disease and toward health and the way institutions like churches and schools can function within Berry s vision of healthy communitiesThe authors were largely successful in their task even if sometimes the prose seems a bit wordy or unclear I couldn t help but wonder if the fact that the book had multiple authors contributed to a few hiccups along those lines That minor point aside what I most appreciated about the book is that it drove me back toward Berry s work And I think I ll be able to do that with a better understanding of Berry s broader concerns thanks to this volume
