A Sweet View


‘A Sweet View’ explores how writers and artists in the 19th century shaped the English countryside as a partly imaginary idyll, with its distinctive repertoire of idealised scenery: the village green, the old country churchyard, hedgerows and cottages, scenic variety concentrated into a small compass, snugness and comfort. The book draws on a very wide range of contemporary sources and features some of the key makers of the ‘South Country’ rural idyll, including Samuel Palmer, Myles Birket Foster, and Richard Jefferies.
