The Essex landscape is a rich mosaic of marshland and estary, old forests, gentle valleys, picturesque villages and thriving industrial areas spilling out into the countryside.
This delightful anthology shows us how Essex has been seen by poets and writers throughout the centuries. Here, brought together for the first time, are selections from the works of famous visitors to the county, such as H G Wells, John Betjeman and Charles Dickens, and local authors, like Mervyn Linford, Jesse Berridge and S L Bensusan. Through their eyes we see the different moods and varied textures of a county which has inspired both affection and mockery, admiration and criticism.
