Pickle Me This

May 10, 2006

Hey Farmer farmer

I’m now reading Silent Spring by Rachel Carson, and it’s wonderful. I can see the Annie Dillard comparisons, because as Dillard is a writer who knows science, Rachel Carson was a scientist who really knew how to write. It’s also been fascinating to read Silent Spring so close to The Death and Life of the Great American Cities, as Jacobs’ and Carson’s messages were so similar. Both preaching the virtues of diversity and the power of time to develop things as it should.
