The Lark Ascending: People, Music and Landscape in Twentieth-Century Britain

The Lark Ascending: People, Music and Landscape in Twentieth-Century Britain

Richard King

A radical new history of Britain's natural landscapes and the musical movements they have inspired.

"Deftly woven artistic and political ley lines mapping and connecting the figurative landscape of the psyche and the literal landscape of the British countryside."

 - Andrew Weatherall

"Less a book and more a poetic time-travelling device."

 - Jeremy Deller

"Illuminating, idiosyncratic and never less than fascinating."

 - Melissa Harrison
