Inspiration to read: interview with Sir Roy Strong in The English Garden Sept 2014, his impetus for remaking his garden after his wife died. Made it his own, "was going about like Robespierre" and everything was recorded in pictures. And how even with all of the changes he makes, he will come across his wife in the garden still, "...she's all over that garden".

缺點:
1.沒有地圖,殊為可惜。2.有些翻譯可能有錯。

優點:
除了君王紀事,也將重要的人物、事件及時代變遷適當地呈現出來。

A good easily read book which deals with English National identity since the Tudor period to the present day. It looks at poetry, music and in the main, art. It looks at Turner and Constable as well as other depictions of the English rural idyll. Interesting and well written. Particularly helpful for those who have an interest in art, history and English Culture
