Detailed Product Description
Washington, University of Washington Press, 1997. 403 pp. Used softcover. Near Fine.

A volume in the Weyerhaeuser Environmental Classics series. Foreword by William Cronon. To English poets and writers of the seventeenth century, as to their predecessors, mountains were ugly protuberances which disfigured nature and threatened the symmetry of the earth; they were symbols of God's wrath. Yet, less than two centuries later the romantic poets sang in praise of mountain splendor, of glorious heights that stirred their souls to divine ecstasy. Nicolson considers the intellectual renaissance at the close of the seventeenth century that caused the shift from mountain gloom to mountain glory.
