Reprint of Mabey's classic book on the nightingale Whistling in the Dark. For a thousand years this drab migrant has been the most celebrated song-bird in the western world. Richard Mabey examines why humans have so often fallen under its spell; how it came to inspire Keats, Coleridge and Clare; and what this tells about our own responses to place and season.
`A pure pleasure to read...a small classic' Peter Levi,Spectator
