The Faber Book of Gardens is a beautiful treasury of poems, stories, songs and essays about gardens, spanning centuries and cultures. The poetic appreciations of gardens by Andrew Marvell and John Keats sit alongside the horticultural passions of Frances Hodgson Burnett and the mythic power of gardens as described by Charlotte Bronte and William Blake. Editor and avid gardener Philip Robinson has paid attention to the small, private plot as much as the grand aristocratic and imperial gardens ? from medieval Japan to English Landscape to suburban Arizona ? and this collection is sure to inspire and enchant gardeners everywhere.
Philip Robinson trained as a gardener after leaving university. He has lived and worked in rural Northumberland for seven years. His first novel, That We Might Never Meet Again was published by Faber in 2005.
