Abstract

A dozen essays, written in memory of Denis Cosgrove (1948-2008), focus on a range of case studies, from paintings, maps and stereographs to memorial forests and urban landscapes. Spanning an arc from classical antiquity to twentieth-century modernity, the essays travel through and beyond some of the iconic landscapes that served as the settings and inspiration for much of Cosgrove’s work and life: from the Greco-Roman Mediterranean to Palladio’s Veneto, and from Imperial Britain to the forests and contemporary metropolises of North America. They survey creative meeting points of historical and cultural geography, and contribute to the span of the geographical imagination that Cosgrove’s work enlarged and enriched. - (HC)
