The Country and the City.
A fellow of Jesus College, Cambridge, Williams unpacks the social, literary, and intellectual history of human perception of country versus city, especially from the English viewpoint where urbanization, capitalism, and the Industrial Revolution are so impactful. He clarifies the evolution of human relastionships with country and city through the artists who work with the written word. Expressions of transformation are brought together from his intriguing viewpoint in a selection from poems, novels, essays and studies. Published in 1973, this book feels especially relevant today as attitudes of class division, romanticism, cultural superiority, and other partitions play a critical role in politics throughout the world.
