Within the papers gathered during this, the 1st quantity of the Spatial Practices sequence, Englishness is mirrored within the areas it occupies or dwells in. largely stimulated by means of a renewed and becoming curiosity in questions of cultural identification, its emergence in Victorian theories and fictions of nationality, and the hot cultural geography, the papers hide a wealthy number of areas and areas that have been appropriated for cultural meanings: the agricultural nation-state and farmland of the house Counties within the early 19th century as Arcadian idyll in Cobbett, because the land to die for in conflict propaganda, and as nostalgia for a unified, natural English tradition in Lawrence, Morton and Priestley’s shuttle writing, but in addition within the Shell vacationer publications to motoring in rural England; English moorland; the sacred geographies of monuments in Hardy and others; the conventional beach deconstructed in Martin Parr’s images, and the ocean as English Victorian imperial territory and its symbolic breezes in Froude’s shuttle writing.
