Blog Watch: A brief reflection on "Imagination in Place"

Near the beginning of George Steiner's Errata, he writes about his experience with a pictorial guide to coats of arms, and how it overwhelmed him with "a sense of the numberless specificity" and how he "grew possessed by an intuition of the particular, of diversities so numerous that no labor of classification and enumeration could exhaust them."

In this other essay collection from Wendell Berry from last year, he also addresses this topic in relation to place. He believes there is an enormous failure of imagination when it comes to its application to our country's communities.
