Pliny the Elder's description of the struggle between elephants and dragons may not have had hard evidence to back it up, but most of the literary responses to nature in this collection are the result of writers' personal observations. From George Orwell's thoughts on the common toad to DH Lawrence's 'green fires' of spring, the selections include poetry, diary entries, extracts from novels and scientific observations from the likes of Wordsworth, Milton and Virginia Woolf.
