Berger of course also wrote the classic Ways of Seeing, which happened to have been assigned in Peter Carr's classes, along with Gary Snyder, Basho and E.F. Schumacher, and whatever engaged Peter (and probably Jeanie(!) just them, teaching their version of Consciousness-Raising 101. It delights me to think that, if you read or reread Levertov or Berger you might get a sense of the reader, Jeanie, a la the novel Fahrenheit 451, where people keep books alive. Books, of course, keep so many of us alive. Peace out, Jeanie! XOXOXO
