Editorial Reviews

Review

"This volume will be useful to a wide range of readers. Scholars of the genre will delight in the richness of the textual references and use of illustrations to ground the discussions. Page and Smith deftly weave critical threads from other scholars and pull those arguments further in interesting directions. An extensive list of works cited is worthy reading in itself for those interested in further exploration of the topics covered ... For readers less familiar with the genres of botanical writing and garden literature in the two periods, this text will open up surprising areas of exploration and perhaps create new points of connection with their own critical interests."
Patricia Peek, Romantic Circle

"This book equips us to textually, historically, and visually understand gardens as spaces continually central to women's socialization over a century of restless cultural change."
Nineteenth-Century Contexts

"This beautiful, extensively researched book confers order, clarity, and critical insight on the ubiquity of gardens in women's lives and creative work from 1780 to 1870 ... Seventy-two sumptuous illustrations complement the lucid and graceful writing ... Page and Smith's work provides scholars a most inviting and thought-provoking resource to explore."
Mary Ellen Bellanca, Victorian Studies

"Brady examines both the history of the concept and more contemporary re-appropriations of the term. Her two chapters on the Kantian understanding of sublimity are excellent, as is the final chapter on the environmental sublime. This book deserves to be regularly included in courses on aesthetics."
R. E. Kraft, Choice

Book Description

Combines an analysis of literature and art, women's history and culture, and real and conceptual gardens as it reconsiders the role of the garden in educational, aesthetic, and political debates from 1780 to 1870. Written in a lively and engaging style and amply illustrated.
