in consequence of the missive, I hadn't thought of that before...., penned by Jan
This phrase of Edward's set off the thought he does understand the picturesque but appreciates the same landscape as Marieanne, yet with different ideas.
Thankyou for the quote from Gilpin. I had read it but my understanding of picturesque theory is imperfect- not as good Edward Ferras.
I haven't heard of 'snug' as a defining feature of the picturesque. If the 'snug' farmhouse or cottage has honeysuckle covered walls or is near twisty trees, 'snug' may've been accepted as an illustrative element of the picturesque.
Thanks everyone for reading my post.
