Gary Snyder Reading // August 12, 1983

This August 1983 recording is of Gary Snyder reading in Boulder for the first time since 1972. It is a selection of poetry from his new work Axe Handles. The commentary between poems reflects his interest in Buddhism and his travelling and anthropological experiences. He comments on the inspirations for some of his written works.
