Hodge and His Masters

Description: 

Hodge and His Masters by Richard Jefferies is written by Jefferies. The doorway of the Jason Inn at Woolbury had nothing particular to distinguish it from the other doorways of the same extremely narrow street. There was no porch, nor could there possibly be one, for an ordinary porch would reach half across the roadway.

Amaryllis at the Fair

Description: 

Amaryllis at the Fair is written by Richard Jefferies. What a pity Jefferies should have given us "Amaryllis at the Fair," and "After London"!--this opinion has been propagated with such fervency that it seems almost a pity to disturb it by inquiring into the nature of these his achievements. Certainly the critics, and their critical echoes, are united.

Field and Hedgerow

Description: 

Field and Hedgerow is written by Richard Jefferies. The meadow is bare, but in a little while the heart-shaped celandine leaves will come in their accustomed place. On the pollard willows the long wands are yellow-ruddy in the passing gleam of sunshine, the first colour of spring appears in their bark.

Pageant of Summer

Pageant of Summer is written by Richard Jefferies. The white pollen of early grasses growing on the edge was dusted from them each time the hawthorn boughs were shaken by a thrush. These lower sprays came down in among the grass, and leaves and grass-blades touched. Smooth round stems of angelica.

The Open Air

Description: 

The Open Air is written by Richard Jefferies. The boughs of an oak reached out across to the corn, and made so pleasant a shade that Guido, who was very hot from walking in the sun, sat down on the bank of the streamlet with his feet dangling over it, and watched the floating grass sway slowly as the water ran.

The Life of the Fields is written by Richard Jefferies. The white pollen of early grasses growing on the edge was dusted from them each time the hawthorn boughs were shaken by a thrush.

The Amateur Poacher

Description: 

The Amateur Poacher is written by Richard Jefferies. In this work the poacher's character is noway minced. Poaching is no longer an amusement, but a hard, prosaic business, a matter of pounds, shillings, and pence, requiring a long-headed, shrewd fellow, with a power of silence, capable of a delicacy of touch which almost raises poaching into a fine art.

Nature Near London

Green rushes line the way, and green dragon flies dart above them. Thistledown is pouting forth from the swollen tops of thistles crowded with seed. In a gateway the turf has been worn away by waggon wheels.
