Modern Nature: The Journals of Derek Jarman

by Derek Jarman
£9.99   paperback  Vintage Publishing (Vintage Classics) (2018)

Modern Nature: The Journals of Derek Jarman by Derek Jarman A divine, meditative and inspiring diary of Derek Jarman's famous garden at Dungeness.
 
WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY OLIVIA LAING
 
In 1986 Derek Jarman discovered he was HIV positive and decided to make a garden at his cottage on the barren coast of Dungeness. Facing an uncertain future, he nevertheless found solace in nature, growing all manner of plants. While some perished beneath wind and sea-spray others flourished, creating brilliant, unexpected beauty in the wilderness.
 
Modern Nature is both a diary of the garden and a meditation by Jarman on his own life: his childhood, his time as a young gay man in the 1960s, his renowned career as an artist, writer and film-maker. It is at once a lament for a lost generation, an unabashed celebration of gay sexuality, and a devotion to all that is living.
