Henry Beston (June 1, 1888–April 15, 1968), that great poet laureate of nature and the human spirit, addressed this perennial question [of the goodness of human nature] in Northern Farm — the irrepressibly beautiful and sage 1948 collection of short, lyrical essays and diary entires penned over the course of a year on a small farm in Maine, which gave us Beston on whimsicality and the limits of knowledgeand his increasingly timely manifesto for reclaiming our humanity from the tyranny of technology.
