An account English weather, which is at the very heart of English life and culture, as it is experienced physically, emotionally and spiritually. It catches the distinct voices of compelling individuals: ‘Bloody cold’, says Jonathan Swift in the ‘slobbery’ January of 1713; Percy Shelley wants to become a cloud and John Ruskin wants to bottle one.
