Texte du rabat

Since the eighteenth century, the idea of landscape has given context to the garden. Both the garden and landscape have proved fertile resources for a wide range of philosophical and cultural reflections. Examining literal and intellectual scapes, the contributors to "After the Garden? "consider setting and place as irreducible features of both the human condition and sociocultural existence.
Focusing on a range of periods in places from France to the Balkans and from Siberia to San Diego, essays center on such subjects as the "global garden," Lockean landscapes, ecohistory, nineteenth-century Australian and North American landscape painting, and zoos. Helping to ground the collection in its project of illuminating both the earthly reality and the metaphorical richness of landscape are two photoessays that focus on "unsettled" sites of the Far East and American West.
