Full Bio

Pulitzer Prize Winner Gary Snyder, a Zen Buddhist, mountaineer, environment activist and founding member of the beat generation, has written 16 collections of poetry and prose, including “No Nature, Mountains and Rivers Without End,” “The Practice of the Wild” and “Turtle Island.” He has been awarded the Bollingen Poetry Prize and the Robert Kirsch Lifetime Achievement Award.

One of America’s most celebrated poets, Gary Snyder has won numerous honors and awards for his writing, including the Bollingen Prize, an American Academy of Arts and Letters award, a Guggenheim Foundation fellowship, and many more.

He is an American man of letters. Perhaps best known as a poet, he is also an essayist, lecturer, and environmental activist.

He has been described as the “poet laureate of Deep Ecology”. He began his career in the 1950s as a noted member of the “Beat Generation,” though he has since explored a wide range of social and spiritual matters in both poetry and prose. Snyder’s work blends physical reality and precise observations of nature with inner insight.
