Gustave Flaubert called the Loire the most French of French rivers. It is the longest river in France and the most varied in scenery and moods. Martin Garrett follows the Loires course through cities and countryside, tracing its dramatic history from the days of feuding warlords and barons to the battles of 1940.
The Loire in the Landscapes of the Imagination guide series; providing an in-depth cultural and account of some of the world’s most memorable and evocative landscapes. Presented as a cultural and literary guide, each title in the series explores the cultural history of a landscape, providing an overview of the area’s development from its earliest roots to the modern day. Particular emphasis is placed on the literary, poetic, architectural, cultural and historical elements that make up the landscape and each title is written and researched by an academic expert. An Epilogue offers suggestion for further reading and indices of literary, artistic and historical names and places and landmarks.
