Writing the Thames

Christina Hardyment

Surveying writings as diverse as Caesar’s account of his legions crossing the Thames, John Tradescant describing his botanical garden at Lambeth, and The Wind in the Willows, this is an illustrated look at how the Thames has inspired people to write about it. Focusing on the Victorian and Edwardian periods, Hardyment describes the responses of early chroniclers and historians, topographers and tourists, naturalists and poets, novelists who set their stories along its banks, and those who go messing about in boats.
