Blog Watch: About Wendell Berry

Wendell Berry is all the rage these days among ecologists, traditional conservatives, and hipster Christians. Considering the full range of Berry’s work in the George Review, Charles Hudson says: “In an age when many writers have committed themselves to their ‘specialty’—even though doing so can lead to commercialism, preciousness, self-indulgence, social irresponsibility, or even nihilism—Berry has refused to specialize. He is a novelist, a poet, an essayist, a naturalist, and a small farmer. He has embraced the commonplace and has ennobled it.”
