Landscape historian Batey explores real and fictional settings of Austen's novels. In each chapter she uses a different Austen novel to discuss the style of gardens and landscapes during the early 19th century and Regency England. A continuing theme is the tension between Georgian propriety and the challenging Romantic ideals as they played out in the English landscape. Photos and reproductions of paintings supplement the text. 10.75x10.5" Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
