Description - Changing Forest by Dennis Potter

Dennis Potter was born and brought up in the Forest of Dean, a place he described as "a heart-shaped place between two rivers, somehow slightly cut off from the rest of England". This book, first published in 1962, is Potter's personal study of that small area - its people, traditions, ceromonies and institutions - at a time of profound cultural and social change. He describes the fabric of a world whose old ways are yielding to the new: the collieries closing, the chapels emptying, the local clubs and brass bands harder to sustain. He asks whether the gains of modernity have, for the individuals and society he evokes, been worth the loss.
