This is a five-star book if ever I have read one! I am a Presbyterian minister and, other than scripture, this is the most formative book I have read in my life (and I have read lots of books!). I first read this book fourteen years ago when taking my daughter to gymnastics class. Each week as she tumbled and climbed, I read and savored a chapter of this book and was forever changed. "Pilgrim at Tinker Creek" is about seeing, really seeing, seeing deeply. It is about awe and wonder, without which we cannot be truly human. It is about the interconnectedness of all life. This book has caused me to "see" God, life, myself in a much "bigger," more profound way than I did before having read it. I have given away dozens of copies over the years, and I am writing this review because I came to this site to order another copy for a teenager in my church and wanted to add my "witness." I wish I could afford to buy you your copy, too!

I was assigned to read Annie Dillard's Pilgrim at Tinker Creek for my AP English III class. We had just finished reading Henry David Thoreau's Walden, or Life In The Woods a few weeks prior, and our teacher had told us that Dillards writing style was similar to Thoreau's. Now, I'm not a big Thoreau fan (as my test grade proves), so this was not consoling to me. Over spring break I picked up the book and began to read it. She starts simply "I used to have a cat, an old fighting tom, who would jump through the open window by my head in the middle of the night and land on my chest." From that sentence on, I was hooked. There are two parts to this book, a via positiva, and a via negativa. The beginning is filled with life, positive imagery, and numerous quotes from Thoreau and van Gough. Dillard covers her perspectives on Heaven and earth, seeing, winter, and "the fixed" in this section using such qualities as listed before. The via negativa begins somewhere in
chapter five or six. It creeps in, slowly taking over the positive images and feelings, until you finally find that you are reading about children abusing newts in a state park, or caterpillars walking in the same circle around the same vase for seven full days, because their leader was taken away without their knowledge. Death is a reoccurring theme here. A main question in my class was what happened to make her change styles? Was it planned, or was it the effect of some event--the death of a friend or loved one perhaps? Either way, we read on through the spring and summer, and into the fall. She leads us into a flood, where she says, "I like crossing the dam. If I fall, I might not get up again...I face this threat every time I cross the dam, and it is always exhilarating.

Tolles Buch. Der Inhalt ist hinlänglich bekannt. Mein Englisch reicht gerade so aus, aber als Nichtmuttersprachler muss man doch den einen oder anderen Begriff nachschauen.

I am a high school junior doing a review of the Annie Dillard classic, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek. This review is being written about the aspects of the book that I feel stand out about the writing technique, content, and my view of the author. This book was extremely descriptive when it came to anything that was part of nature. Dillard has a massive love for nature, and she uses a lot of similes to describe what she sees. The book as a whole seems to progress from cheerful to confusingly upset to a happy medium. The author seems to magically switch in the middle of the book from optimistic to pessimistic. This sudden switch should have had a more clear separation than just stopping one and starting the other without telling the reader. The book refers to this change as "via postiva" to "via negativa". Whether she intended for it to come out this way or not I cannot say, but I can say that I don't like the "half of the book good and the other half bad" style of writing. I don't like the technique because, for the second part of the book (the negative half), I didn't enjoy reading all that depressing and disgusting literature. Dillard should have just blended the two views together as she was writing. At the beginning of the book Dillard grabs you through her somewhat extreme use of similes. The reader can hardly turn the page without running into at least a handful of similes describing everything under the sun. The reader's mind is never given a chance to rest or doze off because it is constantly picturing these images described in the book. This is one of the best characteristics of the book. I feel that this is her trademark throughout the entire novel.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

"Pilgrim at Tinker Creek," by Annie Dillard, is not a captivating, exciting book that you cannot tear your eyes away from, but it certainly is worth the sometimes tedious hours of reading. There were moments I grew bored and the page numbers slowly swept by, there were moments I laughed aloud because of her wonderful sense of humor, and there were moments I sat deep in thought about her questions and ideas. The most interesting aspect, and perhaps the main purpose for the book, is Dillard's search for the truth about God. She tells us in the Afterword that the book is divided into two sections; "via positiva" and "via negativa." Dillard proves to be more positive than negative throughout the book. She seems to believe there is a God because she often refers to Him; however, she seems to refrain from taking faith and trusting God. The question may not be so much; "is there a God", but "what is God's purpose?" She introduces this idea in the very beginning: "Was the sense of it there and God absconded with it...?" (p.9) Here she proposes that God abandoned us or that He spread to a more distant place, away from our sight. This is the main problem for Dillard; like many, she must see to believe. "Any copperhead anywhere is an archer in cover; how much more so is God! Invisibility is the all-time great cover' and that the one infinite power deals so extravagantly and unfathomably in death... makes that power an archer." (p.91) She seems to profess that there is a God, He is simply invisible to our eyes. This quote brings in another major topic of Dillard's book - death. She is constantly focusing on the death of any living creature. Like God, this is something we cannot understand and have no control over.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
