The Seasons

Screen Shot 2016-04-06 at 16.35.34The four seasons roll through English literature, budding, blossoming, fruiting and dying back: lazy summer days and golden harvests, misty autumn walks and frozen fields in winter, and all the hopeful romance of spring.

This new series, edited by Melissa and published in association with The Wildlife Trusts, is a true celebration of the seasons. A collection of writing both classic and modern, and from all corners of the UK, these anthologies mix prose and poetry dating back a thousand years to tell the story of each season’s progress across these isles. They feature writing by members of the general public as well as extracts from classic works of literature and new work from the best of contemporary nature writers, the result a fittingly diverse range of voices to sing out each season’s joy.
