The earliest comprehensive collection of Snyder's poetry, A Range of Poems includes his first three books, as well as the first-ever published versions of two additional books, 'The Back Country' and 'Miyazawa Kenji.' Snyder's immersion in Zen Buddhism and work translating ancient Chinese and modern Japanese texts into English helped bridge the literary separation of East and West. His lyrical sympathy to "true wilderness" and man's natural tendencies served as a foil to the pessimism and industrial destruction of the decades following World War II.
