Write The First Customer Review

Explores the garden as a locus of transformation and transgression in the "De Re Rustica" of Columella, the "Satires" of Horace, the "Annals" of Tacitus, and the "Confessions" of Saint Augustine. This book considers images of gardens from a kaleidoscope of genres, those that the Romans made their own: satire, annalistic history, and autobiography.
