Author Bio
Gary Snyder
Snyder grew up near Puget Sound, attended Reed College, and then was (briefly) a fire lookout, logger, and merchant seaman. In 1955, he read his poem "The Berry Feast" at the 6 Gallery in San Francisco, the same night that Allen Ginsberg read HOWL. That night, which Kerouac documented in THE DHARMA BUMS, has been widely acknowledged as the beginning of the Beat movement. His poetry reflects his intense interest in Zen Buddhism and in the beauty and mystery of the natural world. Snyder won a Pulitzer Prize in 1974 for his collection TURTLE ISLAND.
