Women on Nature

 

Katharine Norbury has sifted through the pages of women’s fiction, poetry, gardening diaries and recipe books to show the multitude ways in which women have observed the natural world from the religious writing of the anchorite Julian of Norwich to the seventeenth-century travel journal of Celia Fiennes; from the exquisite poetry of Emily Brontë to the adventurous mountaineering journal of Dorothy Pilley. Women on Nature presents a ground-breaking vision of the natural world that is of unique importance in terms of women's history and the history of writing about nature.
