Bringing a fresh perspective to the roles gardens have played in delighting and sustaining the human condition through the ages, Kristin King’s lyrical study of gardens in the life and writings of Swedenborg is an examination of the nature of experience, the limitations of language, and the meanings behind our desires and efforts to maintain, manipulate and ornament our surrounding outdoors environments.

This book-length essay explores the various meanings gardens had for Swedenborg and what meanings they might hold in turn for readers of Swedenborg.
