Synopsis: By examining such topics as the rose's origin and history the ways and variety of its naming, the cultural overlays it has acquired through the centuries, its various uses and the literature and art that have been employed to desribe it, Lacy brings the reader a collection of musings on the genus Rosa - the truths and the lovely fabrications.
