Titel: Walking on water
Sub titel: Reading, writing and revolution
`Walking on Water' is a startling and provocative look at teaching, writing, creativity, and life by a writer increasingly recognized for his passionate and articulate critique of modern civilization. Derrick Jensen brings us into his classroom, whether college or maximum security prison, where he teaches writing. He reveals how schools perpetuate the great illusion that happiness lies outside of ourselves and that learning to please and submit to those in power makes us into lifelong clock-watchers. As a writing teacher Jensen guides his students out of the confines of traditional education to find their own voices, freedom, and creativity. This is a hard-hitting and sometimes scathing critique of our current educational system that not only gives a hands-on method for learning how to write, but also a lesson on how to connect to the core of our creative selves.
