Overview

The Spirit of Britain: A Narrative History of the Arts by Roy C. Strong, Roy Strong

The Spirit of Britain is a masterly survey of the country’s arts: literature, music, poetry, painting, architecture, theater, and all the related subjects that, over the centuries, have given British intellectual and cultural life its unique character and vitality. Presented to the reader as a single unfolding narrative, from the Celts to the present day, the arts are set within a vivid panorama of the social, economic, political, and ideological forces that shaped them. Four hundred gorgeous photographs and works of art add immensely to the dramatic impact of this landmark work of cultural history. Sir Roy Strong is the former Director of both the Victoria & Albert Museum and the National Portrait Gallery; among his books are The Artist and the Garden, The Cult of Elizabeth, and The Story of Britain.
