The Land (Unabridged)
The Land by Vita Sackville-West is a novella-length poem that has just come on to the public domain. Written when Vita became homesick for her beautiful home in Kent, it had six print runs within three years of its publication in 1926. Vita has always been popular for her gardening, her lifestyle, and bohemian companions like Virginia Woolf and the Bloomsbury group. Her nostalgia for farming and the beauty of the seasons is described with an artist’s eye for detail.
Originally published in 1926.
