The land in which we live both shapes us and we shape it: Physically, by means of cultivation and building, and imaginatively, by projecting onto it our aspirations and fantasies of wealth, refuge, well-being, awe, danger and consolidation. From the earliest civilizations, humans have exhibited a need to connect with the world around them by transforming land into landscapes. Studying Cultural Landscapes combines a collection of lively and engaging essays covering the symbolic reading of a wide variety of landscapes. It offers historical, cultural, political, visual and poetic perspectives, offering analyses of landscape forms from the rural to the celluloid.
