Subject: RE: Psychogeography and Folk
I'll have to make an effort to stop this becoming a private conversation! but thanks to the leveller for the stories about Roger Deakin, and for the lovely song which I very much hope to hear one day.

It was 'The Wild Places' which led me to Roger's books when a friend gave me the book as a present about two years ago.

Thanks for the link to the Powys Society.

To answer Mr Spleen's question, yes "psychogeography" is probably just a neologism for an artistic approach to the outside world for which you can find many precursors from Piers Plowman onwards!
