Eco thinking?

Posted in Texts by chrisfremantle on June 20, 2009

I like William Boyd’s writing and he highlights something quite accurately, which is inherently problematic about the relationship between the urban and the rural.  The assumed dichotomies of creative v traditional, noisy v quiet, dirty v clean, etc need to be challenged.

Furthermore he acknowledges the constructedness of the landscape as a characteristic, but he doesn’t analyse the meaning of constructing landscapes as a human activity.

William Boyd’s It’s all too beautiful in today’s Guardian Review
