Wanderlust a history of walking

£17.99

Product description

A pastoral and poetic investigation of the politics, philosophy and human pleasure in the activity of walking. The author explores the position that landscape and walking have in the history of literature, and philosophy, whilst reminiscing on the walks she has taken in the USA, Europe and the UK. An irreverent and passionate account of human activity, the book includes profiles of some of the most significant walkers in history and fiction, from Wordsworth to Gary Synder, from Rousseau to Argentina's Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo, from Jane Austen's Elizabeth Bennett to Andre Breton's Nadja. "Wanderlust" offers a provocative examination of the interplay between the body, the imagination and the world around the walker.

Hard back book with dust jacket. Both the book and jacket are in very good condition.
