Inhaltsangabe: The ancient capital of England, with its jumbled historical multiplicity, is the setting for a sequence that moves through self-discovery and the pain of a broken marriage to a fulfilled delight at the processes of art and religious faith. Draws on what Donald Davie has discerned as Hooker's presiding territory: ""the emotion that we have when we recognize some particular terrain as `home'.""
