FREE READ õ Storming the Gates of Paradise Landscapes for Politics Rebecca Solnit has made a vocation of journeying into difficult territory and reporting back as an environmentalist antiglobalization activist and public intellectual Storming the Gates of Paradise an anthology of her essential essays from the past ten years takes the reader from the Pyrenees to the US Mexican border from San Francisco to London from open sky to the deepest mines and from the antislavery struggles of two hundred years ago to today’s street protests The nearly forty essays collected here comprise a uniue guidebook to the American landscape after the mille. I want to tell everyone who has just been introduced to Solnit s work to start with her books on environmental activism Although dense these essays are beautifully written and are so much engaging than her popular books on feminism I admire how much Solnit knows about her city San Francisco I think her writing in this is an amazing example of what it means to pay attention and also reminded me of Jenny Odell s How to Do Nothing I feel as if her ideas in this book could very well fit Jenny Odell s idea of doing nothing and of paying attention to the history of where you are and where you will go Much of my thinking was validated by Rebecca s writing which made this book extremely engaging to read for example her opinion on cars on heartless cities and on the immense privileges granted to us depending on where we live that we are hardly aware of I m also glad that Solnit managed to talk about race in this book too She doesn t do as well as a job in her books about feminism and sort of shies away from the subject If I remember correctly she only listed statistics without substantiating it She goes into the subject of the history of names and how often Native American history is consistently on the verge of being erased There is a great incongruity in the names of men upon the land for these rogues and bureaucrats are too recent and prosaic to convey the benediction of saints heroes gods Instead of the certainties of mythology they convey to those who know the history of the names turbulence economics ambition and brutality In Europe white people are indigenous and they are often named after places Some Anglo Americans were named Winchester after the English cathedral town and so were some eastern US towns but the western towns there are twenty one Winchesters in the United States are often named after the men who bore that place name including two towns honoring the inventor of the Winchester repeating rifle the gun that won the West Winchester itself comes from a pre Celtic word and a Latin suffix chester meaning a walled town and the word is at least twelve centuries old When places are named after men and not the other way around people become real and permanent than land As Robert Frost once observed The land was ours before we were the land sThis book got me thinking about so many things It encouraged me to get into landscape photography which she discusses in a few essays at the beginning of the book She s introduced me to so many landscape photographers books and activists who have done so much for the environment The biggest criticism I have with this book is the use of the term disabled in the essay Seven Stepping Stones down the Primrose Path I understand that being conceptually disabled due to people believing they always need mechanical assistance in order to get around is a thing but I wish the author could ve delved in to the politics of disability and landscape She acknowledges in her other book Wanderlust that If walking is a primary cultural act and a crucial way of being in the world those who have been unable to walk out as far as their feet would have not been denied merely exercise or recreation but a vast portion of her humanity Surprisingly this thought wasn t given much depth in this book which is sad because I think that disabled people have a different relationship to landscape and walking Not everyone is able to walk or run or go sight seeing as often as others can I would ve loved for this to be discussed especially since it s central to her idea When I wrote about walking I learned that one version of home is everything you can walk to Thus I with my few hundred suare feet of rented space can also claim a thousand acre park that ends at the Pacific with a beach full of seabirds four or five movie theaters hundreds of restaurants bars and caf s a big public library way too many tattoo parlors a fine collection of monuments views promenades and I loved this book and although it is very dense and packed full of information I think that Solnit did a great job at organizing her writing Each essay compliments each other beautifully and her writing is full of profound meaning I enjoyed this book a lot and will be revisiting it often It has really shown me the best of Rebecca Solnit s writing skills even after I was absolutely convinced after reading her memoir The Faraway Nearby she is eually the amount of genius on her nonfiction writing about the environment There are no grand solutions only everyday practices of paying attention of valuing difference and the openness that comes with some risk of rethinking home and refusing to be afraidI apologize for my typos or grammar errors I wrote this on my iPhone รักด้วยเล่ห์ ร้อยด้วยกล เล่ม 2 go Much of my
