Product Description

Review

'Coherently set core essays best serve the book's central theme, and are likewise the most satisfying scholarly endeavours. The social and political implications of changing landscape imagery emerge in fascinating detail in John Lucas' examination of Wordsworth's and Clare's ambivalence toward the picturesque; in Hugh Prince's reflections on the nostalgic timelessness of rural scenes from Gainsborough and Richard Wilson to Constable and Turner; and, above all, in Daniels' polished chapter on the political iconography of woodland … Spirited and attentive editing and virtually impeccable bookmaking make this volume a pleasure to read.' David Lowenthal, History Today

Book Description

The Iconography of Landscape, first published in 1988, draws together fourteen scholars from diverse disciplines across the humanities and social sciences to explicate the status of landscape as a cultural image, 'a pictorial way of representing, structuring or symbolising surroundings'.
