Wendell Berry awarded Dayton Literary Peace Prize

CINCINNATI (AP) — The war Wendell Berry often writes about is what he sees as man's violence against his surroundings.

The Kentucky-based author, essayist and poet was named winner Monday of the Dayton Literary Peace Prize's lifetime achievement award for his steadfast promotion of the need for people to live at peace with their environment.

"We are violent in our use of land," he said. "... The most direct way, which is invariably the most violent way, to get what we want is the accepted way."
