Description

These poetic and highly personal pieces describe Edward Thomas's wanderings through the English countryside, taking in meadows, farms, inns, maypoles, churches and wildlife. Whether exploring the Kent weald or the heart of England, describing a crisp winter morning or a heady August day, evoking the scent of honeysuckle or the primeval atmosphere of an ancient wood, Thomas brings the countryside alive through precise observation and vivid, lyrical prose.Generations of inhabitants have helped shape the English countryside - but it has profoundly shaped us too.It has provoked a huge variety of responses from artists, writers, musicians and people who live and work on the land - as well as those who are travelling through it. English Journeys celebrates this long tradition with a series of twenty books on all aspects of the countryside, from stargazey pie and country churches, to man's relationship with nature and songs celebrating the patterns of the countryside (as well as ghosts and love-struck soldiers).

About Edward Thomas

Edward Thomas (1878-1917) was an English poet, journalist and essayist. He made his living writing prose for many years, until he was encouraged to compose verse by the American poet Robert Frost. This led to a prolific outburst of extraordinary poetry, which was brought to a tragic end when Thomas was killed in the First World War.
