Richard Jenkyns (au)
‘National cathedral’, coronation church, royal mausoleum, burial place of poets, resting place of the great & of the Unknown Warrior, former home of parliament, backdrop to the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales -- this rich & extraordinary building unites many functions. This vol. is both an appreciation of an architectural masterpiece & an exploration of the building’s shifting meanings: we hear the voices of those who have described its forms, moods & ceremonies, from Shakespeare & Voltaire to Dickens & Henry James; we see how rulers have made use of it, from medieval kings to modern prime ministers. In this highly original book, classicist historian Jenkyns teaches us to look at this microcosm of history with new eyes. Illustrations.
