Gary Snyder - Teaching Tips

Back Back to Gary Snyder Activities
  • Gary Snyder's poetry is deeply concerned with nature and with creating a visual picture of landscapes. Ask several students to come to the chalkboard and draw what they "see" in a poem ("Riprap" works well). How do the drawings differ? What have students left out? How closely does their memory of the poem resemble the original text?
