Dr Twigs Way
Friday 20 April 2018

From the ‘natural eminences’ of Pemberley to the realities of the Parsonage garden Jane Austen used the Regency landscape as both setting and symbol in her writings. Relying on the knowledge of her readers to distinguish fashionable taste from out-moded formalism, or even gothic fantasy. We will explore references to specific landscape designers, as well as the gardens and landscapes that Jane and her family knew intimately. We will also encounter other writers of the period who use landscape in their novels.
