Landscape

I’ve always found landscape a tricky word. As a child living in the Fens the concept of landscape (if I even thought about it back then) was always about somewhere else.  I don’t think that ambivalence has ever really left me. A couple of years ago I read John Stilgoe’s  book, What is Landscape and was pleased to learn that a Havard professor considered it to be a promiscuous word and that for him (and now for me) ‘individuals conjure landscape individually.’
