Weatherland is a story of English culture told through a history of weather and changing attitudes towards it. Writers and artists across the centuries have looked up at the same sky and felt very different things, and this book takes us through a dazzling journey of their reflections of the seasons over a century. From the wintry world of the Anglo-Saxons and the spring of the Middle-Ages, to the rainy nights that eighteenth century Romantics used as the setting for their most probing thoughts, author Alexandra Harris builds an evocative history of English art and literature through the lens of the weather.
Chosen as the Book of the Year by The Times, The Observer, The Sunday Times and the Independent, this award winning book will not disappoint. It's a great gift idea for history lovers.
