What, if anything, does it signify about the contemporary strength of the rural idyll? How is the rural idyll being reproduced in contemporary culture and what does this imply for the future of rural spaces? Is the idyllic vision becoming universal or should we still be talking, as Cloke et al. (1997) have suggested, of a diversity of idylls? Where does it ﬁt into the dynamics of rural–urban relations, and of class, gender and ethnicity? And, ﬁnally, in the context of rural disasters such as Walkerton, to what extent is it challenged and reinforced by the realities of rural life?
That the long history of intellectual, literary and artistic abstraction of rural life and landscape has embedded idyllic mental images of the rural in Anglo-American civilisation is no longer a matter a debate. What remain debatable and, until recently, largely unaddressed, are questions surrounding the contemporary strength and inﬂuence of the rural idyll. In the ﬁrst instance this is a question about how the cultural construction of this idyll translates into values and actions which determine how people will perceive and use the countryside.
G. Bowman 1996; Leheny 1995; Pruitt and Lafont 1995). Similarly, the experience and imagination of the rural is also far from limited to the visual. People also dwell in the rural in a far more multi-dimensional way. While it is useful to isolate the visual in order to understand its impact on the politics of place, it is a mistake to treat it as if it existed in isolation2. Hence, the emphasis within the literature on landscape aesthetics (including the built elements of the ‘traditional’ landscape – a notion there is not room to investigate here), reduced other aspects, such as the aural in landscape, to incidental qualities.
