First in this edition [Chatto & Windus 1973]. From the cover: “This book has been hailed as a masterpiece: a book of enormous range and depth. Concentrating on changing attitudes as portrayed in English literature since the sixteenth century, Raymond Williams shows the shifting: associations of these two traditional centres of life, and relates them to social developments. Looking at the familiar nostalgia for an ordered and happy rural past, and the influence of contemporary social climates on images and opinions of country and city life. This classic study gives us a fresh understanding of our own views.”
