Nature Writing

Bates writes of December "spells of damp, windless weather, after rain, when whole days in the English countryside seem like soundless preludes to spring," and further notes that "this extraordinary stillness and suspense creates a strange feeling of melancholy." In The Spectator (London, December 7, 1934, 153, pp. 873-874).
