Andrew Marvell : his life and writings by John Dixon Hunt( Book )

13 editions published in 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 905 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Andrew Marvell's reputation, for many, rests on a few brilliant lyrics, notably his famous lines "To his coy mistress". Lovely and timeless as these lyrics are, they represent only a portion of his poetry. He was a master of political celebration and satire. By use of dialogue, debate, the imagery of landscape, gardens and music, he richly conveys the tensions and contraditions of hs time. -- Book jacket

Greater perfections : the practice of garden theory by John Dixon Hunt( Book )

21 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If gardening is most usually thought of as a practical activity, John Dixon Hunt's book explores the theoretical or conceptual basis of garden art." "Greater Perfections explores the meanings of "garden" and its relationship to other interventions into the natural world. It looks at the role of verbal and visual languages in place-making, as well as the fashion in which gardens have been represented in the visual and literary arts. But above all, it offers a new and challenging account of the role of representation in garden art itself."--Jacket
The Italian garden : art, design, and culture by John Dixon Hunt( Book )

13 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Italian gardens vary widely according to their historical date and geographic location. This collection approaches Italian gardens of all periods, from the middle ages to modern times, and it ranges widely throughout the peninsula, from Genoa to Sicily, the Veneto to Liguria, and Ferrara to Florence." "The authors are a distinguished group of Italian, American, English and German scholars, with different backgrounds in art history, literature, architecture, planning, and cultural history. The explorations of the subject from these different perspectives illuminate not only their own disciplines, but are concerned to make many fresh connections between garden art and the politics of nationalism, between the art of gardens and urban infrastructure, between cultural movements like freemasonry and site planning, between design and planting materials. The book offers therefore a narrative of the garden by selecting ten high points of its history, which are introduced with a consideration by the volume editor of the fresh challenges to contemporary Italian garden history."--Jacket

The afterlife of gardens by John Dixon Hunt( Book )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Most books on garden history describe the ways in which gardens have been created. By contrast, The Afterlife of Gardens examines the ways that gardens have been experienced. Using examples from many sites around the world, John Dixon Hunt examines responses to gardens, from Renaissance sites to Baroque creations to modern highway landscaping. Examining how a garden has been experienced extends its history beyond the physical into cultural terms, and the author describes how this "afterlife" of gardens, as understood and experienced by many generations, is often "redesigned" in visitors' imaginative and cultural responses." "Hunt shows how the complete history of a garden must extend beyond the moment of its design and the aims of the designer to include its subsequent reception. He raises questions about the preservation of historical sites and provides lessons for today's designers. This book will appeal to all who have a professional interest in gardens, as well as to the wider general audience for gardens and landscapes of past and present."--Jacket
