Just read Beyond Geography: The Western Spirit Against the Wilderness, and it was awesome.
Walt Whitman’s “Leaves of Grass” and Carl Jung’s “Memories, Dreams, Reflections” are good rewild books, I think. I’d also recommend Virginia Woolf’s “To the Lighthouse,” mostly for this passage:
“How then, she had asked herself, did one know one thing or another thing about people, sealed as they were? Only like a bee, drawn by some sweetness or sharpness in the air intangible to touch or taste, one haunted the dome-shaped hive, ranged the wastes of the air over the countries of the world alone, and then haunted the hives with their murmurs and their stirrings; the hives which were people.”
Check out my book, the College of Mythic Cartography 2004-2014, a compilation of a decade of blogposts on rewilding -
I will check it out… thanks,
Halfway through, and this book from 1983 (highly influenced by the previously mentioned Beyond Geography), Against His-Story, Against Leviathan, is a beautifully poetic critique of civilization.
What are people reading recently?
“Against the pollution of the I” by Jacques Lusseyran.
BTW, his writings also contain some interesting comments on recognizing ‘fake’ people.
