What does it mean to be English? In a post-imperial age of devolution and multiculturalism, the question has taken on a new urgency. In this searching, deeply felt book, the art historian Roy Strong argues that the national psyche has been shaped by the rural arcadia celebrated by poets and painters such as Wordsworth and Constable. Drawing on both high art and popular culture, he identifies an enduring national identity that is inclusive and free of chauvinism or political partisanship.
