Paperback. 276 pages. Dimensions: 8.4in. x 5.4in. x 0.8in.Richard Jefferies (1848-1887) remains one of the most thoughtful and most lyrical writers on the English countryside. He had aspirations to make a living as a novelist, but it was his short, factually based articles for The Live Stock Journal and other magazines, drawn from a wealth of knowledge of the rural community into which he had been born, which, when brought together in book form, brought him recognition (though not wealth) and which continued to be read and admired after his early death. This volume, first published in 1884, contains a collection of essays and articles previously published during his career. Written in Jefferies highly descriptive style, these essays describe rural life and nature in England, illustrating folk traditions and important natural events in rural communities. The mysticism and wonder of the natural world which exemplifies Jefferies works is fully illustrated in these essays. This item ships from multiple locations.
