dc.description.abstractI have chosen to study Snyder's collections of poetry as if, in a larger sense, they formed only one volume. The structure of my paper is fairly simple. In the second section, I will deal with the technical aspects of Snyder's work-- the sources and methods he uses in his poetry to arrive at the type of consciousness he is trying to create. And in the third and final section, I will attempt to examine the reasoning behind his motivation, i.e., why a twentieth-century poet is devoting his creative energies to forming a mythological consciousness, why he sees the primitive as being so vitally important to the survival of the human mind and sensibilities. Clearly, no definite conclusions can be reached. However, I believe that these considerations will at least elucidate Snyder's poetic achievement and present it in such a way as to make it understandable and meaningful.en_US
