Weatherland : writers and artists under English skies / Alexandra Harris.
Publication year: 2015
Publisher: London : Thames and Hudson,
ISBN: 9780500518113 (hbk.) :
Writers and artists across the centuries, from Chaucer to Ian McEwan, and from the creator of the Luttrell Psalter in the 14th century to John Piper in the 20th, looking up at the same skies and walking in the same brisk air, have felt very different things and woven them into their novels, poems and paintings. Alexandra Harris's subject is not the weather itself, but the weather as it is daily recreated in the human imagination. She builds her remarkable story from small evocative details and catches the distinct voices of compelling individuals.
