Description
People have always created gardens. They were the oases that sheltered mythical heroes during their quests, the places of paradise on earth, and the inspirations for painters, sculptors, and poets, as well as a source of sustenance. This delightful miscellany, with words from Pliny the Younger, Homer, Ji Cheng, the Emperor Jahangir, Boccaccio, A.A. Milne, Colette, Willa Cather, Tom Stoppard, Derek Jarman, Joy Kogawa, W.O. Mitchell, and Jamaica Kincaid, explores the sensual, spiritual, aesthetic, social, and even political dimensions of the garden. It is illuminated throughout with naturalists' drawings, children's book illustrations, and lovely reproductions of art.
