Earth and Reveries of Will: an Essay on the Imagination of Matter

by Gaston Bachelard
Trans. Kenneth Haltman

Although English translations of the other books in the series on the elements - air, water and fire - are available from Dallas Institute Publications, this is the first translation of his 1978 work on earth. Totaling 418 pages, this book is by far the weightiest, perhaps appropriately so, as earth itself is heavy. In Earth and Reveries of Will, Bachelard augments our understanding with vibrant images of earth in its initiating, active role. A companion volume, Earth and Reveries of Repose, will be the final work in this series.
