About this book

An exploration of the role of forests in Western thought, drawing on sources ranging from Gilgamesh and the myths of ancient Greece and Rome to 20thc writers like Conrad, Sarte and Beckett. Readers who found Perlin's A Forest Journey stimulating will probably find Harrison's work worthwhile.
