Viridiana: Plant Life and Landscape Aesthetics
Julian Raxworthy’s new book advances an intriguing, well-researched treatise about the design of gardens. I found that, like some old book of philosophy, it lays out not so much a thesis as a guide for living, a practice doctrine, a set of rules, the divinations of a magus. After reading it, I found myself rethinking the spells in my own personal witchcraft. My review of Raxworthy’s book is a transcript of this rethinking operation. It, too, is about gardens.
