Writers and artists under English skies.
If you are British, you will have talked about the weather. The British weather, the dullness, the fear of extreme hot or cold, the undeniable disappointment of it is something that hold the British psyche in the thralls of its changing ways. This book by Alexandra Harris delves deeper into, not just the weather, but how the seasons, atmosphere and aesthetic of it all affects artists, writers and historians. Our relationship with the weather has always been intense and Harris takes a fascinating journey into how that relationship has changed over the last thousand years and how it influences our cultural lives up until the present day. A great gift book for the more thoughtful reader who gets the affinity with the meteorological.
