Summary
  • "In The Wind and the Source, Allen S. Weiss explores the role of a significant yet elusive feature of the French landscape in literature, philosophy, and art: of the legendary, mysterious, monolithic Mont Ventoux. This is not a book about picturesque, touristic, Provence, but about the manifestation of an extreme limit of the imagination that happens to have Provence as its site, as its fantasyland. Weiss is concerned with the vicissitudes of the desire to write about a landscape, the desire to write in a landscape, and perhaps most curiously, the desire to write against a landscape
  • This is a book about love of the landscape, and abstraction from it; it is an account of how a mountain became a myth and how an aesthetic and literary study became metaphysical quest."--Jacket
