Abbey chose each passage himself from his own journals and previous writings-and warns us in his typical humorous style that some of the notes may be unconscious plagiarisms from the great and dead (never steal from the living and mediocre). Abbey’s last wish was to be buried in an unmarked grave somewhere out in the vast desert he loved so much. Vox clamantis in deserto is a role that few care to play, but I find pleasure in it. The voice crying from the desert, with its righteous assumption of enlightenment, tends to grate on the nerves of the multitude.

After all, I’d heard Abbey mentioned in the same breath as David Foster Wallace, and there’s nothing I hate so much as a book I probably should like but don’t.

Comments to eBook A Voice Crying in the Wilderness (Vox Clamantis in Deserto): Notes from a Secret Journal

I fundamentally disagree with Edward Abbey on many of the core beliefs that inform his worldview. Nonetheless, I can't help but admire the man. A writer of immense wit and talent, Abbey's "Notes from a Secret Journal" is a collection of aphorisms, words of wisdom, and plain old thoughts that he compiled near the very end of his 62 years.

These sayings are categorized in subjects such as "On Nature", "Science and Technology", and "Government and Politics". The aphorisms run the gamut from borderline genius to incessantly meaningless. Still, it can't be denied that there is a strong intuitive strain that runs through Abbey's work here. The sheer simplicity of his intuition was the source of Abbey's occaisional brilliance. The man was not pretentious. He didn't put on airs, was crass at times, and spit in the direction of the Ivory Tower intellectuals. Yet, Abbey was highly intellectual himself and left Yale on his own accord due to disgust with Ivy League stuffiness. He was a self described redneck and an intellect for the common man. His love for the simple truths of reality are expressed in his distaste for overly conceptualized modes of thought. He expresses this on page 3:

"I hate intellectual discussion. When I hear the words phenomenology or structuralism, I reach for my buck knife."

Such was the style of Ed Abbey. He, as a thinking man, serves to remind us all that too often intellectuals and philosophers, instead of seeking a greater understanding of reality, seek to play mental gymnastics that end up running in the opposite direction. Abbey brings thinking back down to Earth, back down to humanity. That said, the man could take this view too far and end up superficial as his distate for metaphysics shows.

In conclusion, I highly recommend this book and all of Edward Abbey's books. "A Voice Crying in the Wilderness" is both aggravating and charming, but always engaging. Ed's was a voice that is desperately need in today's world of aristocratic intellectual snobbery and superficial fixation with credentialism. Abbey shows how the common man is often a fount of radical wisdom.

Here is a lovely little book full of the wit and wisdom of Edward Abbey. His viewpoints on Politics, Sex, Wilderness, etc. will be familiar if you've already read any of his works, but it's really neat to have a "carry around" volume of the sayings catagorised like this. You can pick this up anytime and read a couple thoughts or read straight through on one subject. Almost each one will provoke discussion. He seems to have such a way of going to the heart of an issue and delivering in a few short words a whole mindful of wisdom. Love it!

Its not the art of the deal.

Bought for a friend of my son. A Sociology major. Will see results ... I hope.

I do not agree with some of his statements, but have been inspired for half of my life by his overall irrascible philosophy.

This addition makes my Abbey collection complete! A book of Abbey quotes, some published elsewhere, but now in one small volume. This was published for True Abbey Fans only.
Vikus
Wonderful little book of insights, thoughts, and quotations by Edward Abbey. Small enough to be in reach whenever you need to fill up your head with some commonsense. It is full of Abbeys' biting observations on life, love, his love of the desert, and his country.
A quick read, not very impressive.
