Winter: Five Windows on the Season

Adam Gopnik

Write Review

Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, Literary essays, Social & cultural history

Winter takes us on an intimate tour of the artists, poets, composers, writers, explorers, scientists and thinkers who helped shape a new and modern idea of winter. We learn how literature heralds the arrival of the middle class; how snow science leads to existential questions of God and our place in the world; how the race to the poles marks the human drive to imprint meaning on a blank space.

Offering a kaleidoscopic take on the season, Winter is a homage to an idea of a season and a journey through the modern imagination.
