Works about this Work

Hunting Flowers : Home and Its Poetic Deceits Susan Bradley Smith , 2010 single work essay
— Appears in: Transnational Literature , May vol. 2 no. 2 2010;
'It is the landscape, ultimately, that witnesses the leaving of home, and it is the memory of such landscape that makes us ache when recalling home. Geography owns us, but we too often deceive it. If we believe that we come from ‘country’, is leaving a denial, a betrayal? Is it possible that the costs of such infidelity might be higher for women?' -- from the first paragraph of the article.
