Product description

Review

"Landscape speaks to us. But how? Anne Spirn's superb and unique achievement is to spell out the 'how' so that we can better understand landscape's variant dialects its distinctive personalities and respond intelligently, with appropriate emotion." Yi-Fu Tuan, emeritus professor of geography, University of Wisconsin-Madison "Anne Whiston Spirn brings to her reading of landscapes the eye of an artist, the mind of a scholar, and the pen of a gifted writer. There are a few books that have the power to change the way one sees the world. This is one of them." William Cronon, author of Changes in the Land "Spirn has thought deeply about landscape and human responses to it. Her new book...offers a myriad of stimulating impressions and suggestions and pursues a wide array of intellectual issues...All will appreciate Spirn's sensitive eye and her vivid descriptions." Choice

Synopsis

This study suggests that the language of landscape exists with its own syntax, grammar, and metaphors, and that we imperil ourselves by failing to learn and speak this language. Spirn examines urban, rural and natural landscapes, and discusses the thought of renowned landscape authors.
