Gary Snyder was born in San Francisco and received a B.A. in anthropology at Reed College. He attended Indiana University and pursued the study of oriental languages at the University of California at Berkeley. When he was 18, he shipped out of New York as a sailor. He later worked as a logger and forest lookout in Oregon, Washington, and California. Before moving to Japan to study in a Zen monastery under a Bollingen Foundation grant, Snyder worked on an American tanker in the Persian Gulf and South Pacific Islands, then spent four months in India (1961--62). Snyder is one of the most famous Beat poets, along with Allen Ginsberg and Gregory Corso. He is the most controlled and concise of that school; yet his adventurous life has given his verse a unique range of subject and feeling. Close to nature since childhood, he also is the most widely known poet of the ecology movement. Often his poems have a Zen-like stillness and sharpness of perception, which serves to define the connective web between humanity and the natural universe. Snyder is deeply interested in the American Indian and the idea of the tribe as an alternative to modern culture, or at least an example for modern culture. Besides receiving the first Zen Institute of America Award in 1956, Snyder was the recipient of an American Academy of Arts and Sciences poetry prize in 1966. His essays, Earth House Hold (1969), composed of journal notes and diary excerpts, have become a classsic in the underground ecology movement.

In 1951, as a student of anthropology in Oregon, Gary Snyder set himself to the task of analyzing the many levels of meaning a single Native American myth might hold. He Who Hunted Birds in His Father's Village is the result of Snyder's critical look at a Haida tale that was told by the great oral poet Ghandl (Walter McGregor) to John Swanton sometime before 1905. A version of the ubiquitous ?swan maiden" story, it tells of a chief's son who falls in love with a wild goose-girl, loses her, follows her into the sky, and returns to land as a seagull. Snyder goes deep into the transformations that occur in the myth, considering versions of myth from around the world, and explaining how the story might apply here and now. He writes:To go beyond and become what-a seagull on a reef? Why not. Our nature is no particular nature; look out across the beach at the gulls. For an empty moment while their soar and cry enters your heart like sunshaft through water, you are that, totally. We do this every day. So this is the aspect of mind that gives art, style, and self-transcendence to the inescapable human plantedness in a social and ecological nexus. The challenge is to do it well, by your neighbors and by the trees, and that maybe once in a great while we can get where we see through the same eye at the same time, for a moment. That would be doing it well. Old tales and myths and stories are the k_ans of the human race. classics,education and reference,essays,essays and correspondence,fairy tales,folklore and mythology,humanities,literature,literature and fiction,mythology Humanities, Counterpoint
