Wendell Berry Recieves Gifts from Warren Wilson College

Vaclav Havel likened to Wendell Berry

Havel was a complicated figure; he was a playwright who, before his formal political career, had thought little of economics. It wouldn't be quite right to say he was a legatee of the old NCL—at least not in the sense of partisan affiliation. But his angular artistic sensibility; his nostalgia for the "groundedness" of agricultural community; his recoiling at every agent of human depersonalization, not merely the totalitarian state—Havel's closest American analogue is perhaps the writer Wendell Berry, who defies easy left-right pigeonholing but is assuredly not a movement conservative.
