This sophisticated book deals with a theme that was remarkably popular in European Romanticism, re-examined today through studies on gardens and on the feminine approach to science. Using richly suggestive language and abundant literary references, the author describes this “language”, an ancient expressive code of oriental origin where flowers had a sentimental connotation and became the symbols of human feelings. Pancrace Bessa’s floral illustrations, little masterpieces of the coeval botanical painting, complete the book.
