Is it a harmonious, interconnected system, operating according to the principles of co-dependence and benevolence? Or is it red in tooth and claw, an unfeeling, unthinking force, in which the individual is overwhelmed and subsumed to serve a larger purpose, one mysterious and obscure? This is what this volume is all about: an exploration into the nature of Nature, an attempt to discover the true character of the natural world around us. Appropriately, it is neither a rapturous celebration of Nature, nor a grim survey of its various cruelties. Rather, like Nature itself, it is something in between, and something quite beautiful. It is a collection of related essays recounting the author's thoughts on Nature as she observes the ecological happenings of the eponymous Tinker Creek in Virginia's Blue Ridge valley for a period of several years+-+5758045155340626ocn024794993book19920.20Dillard, AnnieThe livingHistoryFictionLate in the 19th century, surveyors, miners, farmers and other new settlers struggle to make a new life among the Lummi and Nooksack Indians in the settlement at Whatcom on Bellingham Bay near Puget Sound+-+K669745155278519ocn076786885book20040.19Dillard, AnnieThe MaytreesFictionDomestic fictionToby Maytree first sees Lou Bigelow on her bicycle in postwar Provincetown, Massachusetts. Her laughter and loveliness catch his breath. Maytree is a Provincetown native, an educated poet of thirty. As he courts Lou, just out of college, her stillness draws him. Hands-off, he hides his serious wooing, and idly shows her his poems. Dillard traces the Maytrees' decades of loving and longing. They live cheaply among the nonconformist artists and writers that the bare tip of Cape Cod attracts. Lou takes up painting. When their son Pete appears, their innocent Bohemian friend Deary helps care for him. These people are all loving, and ironic. As Dillard intimately depicts nature's vastness and nearness, she presents willed bonds of loyalty, friendship, and abiding love.--From publisher description+-+980487615526019ocn048137964file19840.32Dillard, AnnieEncounters with Chinese writersAnecdotesBizarre encounters between Chinese and American writers+-+3106104635248922ocn039763806book19990.21Dillard, AnnieFor the time beingThis personal narrative surveys the panorama of our world, past and present.

For the next two years she asked herself questions about time, reality, sacrifice death, and the will of God. In Holy the Firm she writes about a moth consumed in a candle flame, about a seven-year-old girl burned in an airplane accident, about a baptism on a cold beach.

Extracting and rearranging sentences from old or odd books, she has composed ironic poems - some serious, some light - on poetry's most heartfelt themes of love, nature, nostalgia, and death.

Here the Lummi and Nooksack Indian people fish and farm; hermits pay their debts in sockeye salmon; miners track gold-bearing streams. Here, too, is the intimate, murderous tale of three men. Clare Fishburn believes that greatness lies in store for him. John Ireland Sharp, an educated orphan, abandons hope when he sees socialists expel the Chinese workers from the region. Beal Obenchain, who lives in a cedar stump, threatens Clare Fishburn's life. A killer lashes a Chinese worker to a wharf piling at low tide. Settlers pour in to catch the boom the railroads bring. People give birth, drown, burn, inherit rich legacies, and commit expensive larcenies. All this takes place a hundred years ago, when these vital, ruddy men and women were "the living."+-+94815613253241363ocn047443552book20010.73Robinson, William RSeeing beyond : movies, visions, and values : 26 essays+-+16312152451286ocn708390533file20110.13Dillard, AnnieFor the time beingThis personal narrative surveys the panorama of our world, past and present.

This first full-length study of the Pulitzer prize-winning essayist considers her as wilderness philosopher, religious mystic, professional critic, and arch-romantic. Sandra Humble Johnson moves Dillard from the category of nature writer to the area of aesthetics as she examines the importance of literary epiphany?a distinctive type of illumination to her work. She then explores how Dillard, through her own peculiar use of language, describes and creates these moments of illumination, or dots of self, for the reader. Johnson also reveals Dillard's relationship with other writers who practiced this same literary device: William Wordsworth in his spots of time, T.S. Eliot and his still points, and Gerard Manley Hopkins through his inscape. In addition, Johnson shows how the reader experiences a similar yet personal epiphany I sharing the writer's moment of illumination and further interprets how Dillard's absorption with pain, violence, and beauty is resolved in the nature of language itself7495ocn023583395book19910.47Smith, Linda LAnnie DillardCriticism, interpretation, etcAnnie 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 stylists5692ocn037884725book19980.56Parrish, Nancy CLee Smith, Annie Dillard, and the Hollins Group : a genesis of writersHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etcBy the late 1950s Hollins College had established itself as a nationally competitive academic institution. With the emergence of Louis D. Rubin, Jr.'s writing program, this southern women's school launched some of the most powerful voices in contemporary literature. The careers of Lee Smith, Annie Dillard, Lucinda Hardwick MacKethan, and Anne Goodwyn Jones (members of the class of '67) are representative of the impact the Hollins writing community has had. For Smith, Dillard, and their peers, the years at Hollins were an active and complex gestation period for their themes and writing. Annie Dillard, fresh out of college, burst onto the literary scene with her Pulitzer Prize-winning Pilgrim at Tinker Creek. Lee Smith - who wrote her first novel, The Last Day the Dogbushes Bloomed, while still at Hollins - has received significant critical attention for novels such as Fair and Tender Ladies and Oral History. Lucinda Hardwick MacKethan's Daughters of Time and Anne Goodwyn Jones's Tomorrow Is Another Day are recognized as major feminist studies of southern literature. In examining the institution's roots, the influence of significant mentors in the 1960s, and the writers themselves in the class of 1967, Lee Smith, Annie Dillard, and the Hollins Group provides an intriguing analysis of how one women's writing community coalesced, evolved, succeeded, and persevered+-+78977625353755ocn022971205book19900.25Dillard, AnnieThree by Annie DillardBiographyPersonal narratives+-+09157451553735ocn144685093book19740.22Dillard, AnniePilgrim at Tinker CreekBiographyThis work, a collection of essays on the natural world during a year spent in the Blue Ridge valley of Virginia, reflects the author's interactions with her wilderness surroundings. The author takes us through a year of on-foot explorations through her own landscape, bringing anecdotes, curiosities, and insights about all she observes and experiences. In the summer, she stalks muskrats in the creek and thinks about wave mechanics; in the fall, she watches a monarch butterfly migration and dreams of Arctic caribou. She tries to con a coot, unties a snakeskin, witnesses a flood, and plays "King of the Meadow" with a field of grasshoppers. It is an exploration into the nature of Nature, an attempt to discover the true character of the natural world around us+-+87888761552453ocn021846973book19900.23Dillard, AnniePilgrim at Tinker Creek ; An American childhood ; The writing lifeBiography2412ocn425960029book20100.73Warren, ColleenAnnie Dillard and the Word made flesh : an incarnational theory of language"Annie Dillard's most defining characteristics are her belief in the power of language and her Christian faith. The confluence of these convictions is particularly evident in her identification with Christ's designation as Word. This identification informs her four-limbed incarnational theory of language, which manifests itself in all of Dillard's works. First, because of her belief in the incarnate Word, Dillard believes that the incarnate world speaks a spiritual language that can be heard and interpreted. Viewing the material and the spiritual in a dialectic relationship rather than in a dichotomous one, Dillard argues for the value of the material world for its own sake but also reads nature as a text, translating and giving expression to its spiritual language. Second, because Christ was a physical embodiment of the spiritual, Dillard believes that the spiritual realm continues to be real and substantial, not ephemeral or abstract. Third, because Christ as Word imbued the world with meaning, Dillard believes that language has the sole capacity to express meaning inherent in the world as well as the power to create meaning. Thus, Dillard provides a corrective to what she calls contemporary modernism, which questions not only the inherent meaning of language but the existence of meaning itself Finally, because Christ's role as author of the Word was sacrificial, so Dillard believes that the writer must adopt a similarly sacrificial role, depleting herself for the sake of her work." "Though Dillard's spiritual belief is arguably the most intrinsic aspect of her writings, no fulllength examination of her beliefs has ever been undertaken. This study also greatly extends the critical examination that has been given to Dillard; going beyond the consideration of Dillard's first, Pulitzer Prize-winning text, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, the primary focus of most Dillard criticism, it examines the full corpus of Dillard's nonfiction still in print, as well as her first book of poetry, Tickets for a Prayer Wheel. Incorporating close textual readings, identifying and analyzing scriptural allusions and demonstrating a clear awareness of and engagement with critical responses to her texts, this volume is an important contribution to Dillard scholarship."--Jacket+-+46572873451809ocn698110316com20110.12Dillard, AnnieAn American childhoodBiographyNoted author Annie Dillard explores her childhood and vibrantly chronicles her life in 1950s Pittsburgh+-+16482269961742ocn023043645rcrd19870.12Dillard, AnnieAn American childhoodBiographyAn introspective account of growing up in Philadelphia in the 1950s.
