Fiona Sampson

Write Review

Rated 0


An exploration into how Romanticism shaped the British countryside and our attitudes to it, punctuated by the author's vivid and personal reflections.

Starlight Wood is conceptual and concrete discussion of Romanticism and the British countryside, with ten chapters moving from an encounter with the actual countryside into an exploration of one specific theme, moving between history, history of ideas, politics, literature, art, farming, anecdotes and observations. As a hybrid of writing about place and the history of ideas, with an element of life writing, it delves specifically into the Pre-Romantic world, German Romanticism, natural philosophy, Provincialism, travel writing, and much more.
