Vista by Noel Kingsbury

Book Description

Since the 18th century, when Pope and Addison meditated deeply on gardens, there has been very little critical discussion of gardens and gardening. This stimulating, entertaining and original collection of essays aims to redress that balance, renewing the connection between gardening and the wider intellectual and cultural world. Essays include : "The Garden And The Division Of Labour" by Martin Hoyles "Horticultural Intervention Art" by Tony Heywood "Digging For Anarchy" by Tom Hodgkinson "The Spirit Of The Geometrician" by Fernando Caruncho "As The Garden, So The Earth - The Politics Of The Natural Garden" by Noel Kingsbury "Landscape Design And Life: Conflict Or Complicity?" by Gilles Clement "The Explosion Of Garden Visiting In France" by Louisa Jones "Garden, Nature, Art" by David Cooper "Nyc Wtc 9:11: The Healing Gardens Of Paradise Lost" by Lorna Mcneur "The Power Is In Harmony" by Nori And Sandra Pope "Unnatural History: Women, Gardening And Femininity" by Rozsika Parker "Zen And The Art Of Tea Gardening" by Charles Chesshire "Where Have All The Critics Gone?" by Anne Wareham "The Garden As Art" by George Carter "Gardens Of Ethnicity" by Clare Rishbeth "Psychotopia" by Tim Richardson.
