About this book

Argues that British literary culture was shaped by many of the same forces that created geology as a science in the period 1770-1820 and that landscape aesthetics - the verbal and social idiom of landscape gardening, natural history, the scenic tour, and other forms of outdoor "improvement" - provided a shared vernacular for geology and Romanticism in their formative stages.
