Description

Why do we still get misty-eyed about England's green and pleasant land?

What explains our obsession with country houses - from the National Trust to Downton Abbey?

Why do we still dream of a place in the country? In this delightul book Roy Strong explores the definition of Englishness.

Celebrating our literature, music, art, gardening and drama, Strong identifies those icons and traditions that still speak to us - it is a vision of England that is inclusive and relevant for everybody living in the country today.
