Jane Austen and the English landscape by Mavis Batey( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In late Georgian and Regency England established attitudes towards nature and the countryside, whether in art, literature or landscape gardening, were being challenged on many fronts. Jane Austen's heroines, brought up with well-established Georgian standards, were as susceptible in matters of 'Taste and Feeling' as anyone else and, as this book so clearly demonstrates, their responses to landscape strikingly reflect the ramifications of fashionable taste and the influence of their reading." "As a landscape historian steeped in the novels and letters of Jane Austen, Mavis Batey is the best of guides to the ideas and subtleties behind the real and fictional settings of the novels."--Jacket
Alexander Pope : the poet and the landscape by Mavis Batey( Book )

12 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a unique look at Pope's relationship with the leading garden makers of his time. Forever planning and plotting for his own grotto and for his modest, though famous, five acres in Twickenham, his ideas were also sought at many of the great estates. His importance to Lord Burlington at Chiswick, Henrietta Howard at Marble Hill, and, above all, to William Kent, the great designer who finally 'leaped the fence, and saw that all nature was a garden', is made abundantly clear. As ever, with her profound feel for both literature and landscape, Mavis Batey throws a refreshing and rewarding new light on her subject and shows why Pope has been, and remains, so crucial to our landscape."--Jacket
