    Beschreibung von Audible

    Whether one is in search of tranquility, love, or sustenance, the garden has been seen as the ideal haven for centuries. In this anthology from Christina Hardyment, listeners will travel from ancient China to the Isle of Man, getting a taste of the wide variety of gardens various cultures have produced. Paired with intricate and helpful descriptions of varying gardens, are romantic samples from classic writers such as John Evelyn and William Cowper. With a production lead by the English actor Anton Lesser, Pleasures of the Garden is a must-listen whether one is an avid gardener or just needs a metaphorical escape from the daily grind.


    Pleasures of the Garden begins in ancient China and ends on the Isle of Man; it admires both stately landscaped parks and a soap box full of red geraniums on a fire-escape. It shows that gardening is for everybody, whatever their resources. It features classic writers on gardens such as John Evelyn and Gertrude Jekyll, famous historical figures like Pliny, Francis Bacon and Thomas Jefferson, the novelists Jane Austen, Charlotte Brontë and Robert Louis Stevenson, and the poets John Donne, John Clare, W.B. Yeats and Rudyard Kipling.

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.
