‘Tell me the landscape in which you live and I will tell you who you are’, wrote the Spanish philosopher, José Ortega y Gasset. To what extent was Constable shaped by Suffolk, Hardy by Dorset, Wordsworth by the Lakes? In the 2017 Hesse Lecture, writer and journalist Anna Pavord asks why some places call out to us, give us sustenance, and others don’t. Is one kind of landscape necessarily superior to another? How do we judge them? What are they for?
