You Buy Books. We Plant Trees. Raymo begins by wondering what value the traditional religion of his childhood holds in the contemporary scientific cosmos. He concludes by hedging his bets: the religious worldview can never be his ""John of the Cross lived in a world that was 6, years old and bounded just up there by the dome of night; my universe is measured by geological eons and reaches to the quasars"" , yet he revels in religious imagery, using it to accentuate his sense of wonder at the mysteries of the natural world.
The setting here is the Dingle Penisula, a wild promontory on the Irish coast where Raymo spends his summers. His subjects range from seabirds to meteors, from hedgehogs to snowflakes, organized in the form of a medieval book of hours chapters are entitled ""Matins,"" ""Lauds,"" and so on down to ""Compline"".
There's more than a touch of Annie Dillard here, in Raymo's impressive ability to combine lyrical description and scientific analysis. Like Dillard, Raymo also writes in an intensely personal mode; there are passages here of extraordinary intimacy, especially his recounting of his father's death from cancer. But he also delivers the facts--for instance, why there are no snakes in Ireland.
Despite the subtitle, Raymo seems to be searching not for God, but for the awe that he discovered as a child in religion, and finds now in nature. When it comes to capturing this almost pantheistic rapture, he offers more than a hive's worth of honey. There was a problem adding your email address. Please try again.
