Example text

His way of making contact with something he describes as an ‘aqueo-insular paradise’, in other words, is to talk of it in almost mystical terms (‘nothing but the thunder of Heaven itself’). Which is why, prompted by the fact that the region is ‘beyond description’, sometimes ‘beyond imagination’, Bush gives himself over to its pleasures, even though those pleasures are deeply tinged with confusion about the great curiosities with which the area abounds. For example, as he is punted gently around the many small islands that dot the lakes, Bush comments on ‘shrubs of various kinds, such as I do not remember to have seen’,71 expressing a sense of horticultural curiosity about the place in ways that neatly reflect the achievements of the Swedish naturalist, Carl Linné, who published Systema Naturae (1735), and later, Philosophia Botanica (1751), and Species Plantarum (1753).

All blocks of woodland – an important feature of these designs – had curvilinear, serpentine outlines . . Serpentine carriage drives ran through the park . . Many parks, and the majority of the larger ones, had a lake. Ideally this was positioned in the middle distance when viewed from the windows of the house. 80 Whatever the difference, like Hogarth, Brown’s ideas were to prove immensely popular, and his ‘smooth, pastoral style’ would reflect the graceful taste exemplified by those who were in reaction to a highly formalised aesthetic.

As Bush is rowed from lake to lake, revelling in the majesty of the place, his narrative becomes confessional, yet also more confident about the range of influences that have impacted upon him. As he travels the waterway between one lake and another, described as the ‘streights’, for example, he refers to that ‘most serpentine and intricate passage’ that links the lakes together. 78 How far Bush was influenced by William Hogarth’s The Analysis of Beauty (1753), which championed the serpentine shape as the Line of Beauty, and by the notion of the wavy, flowing curves identified with landscape and garden architects in From Grand Tour to Home Tour, 1760–1800 37 the mould of Capability Brown, is not entirely clear.
