Thirty years since its first publication in English, French philosopher Gaston Bachelard's "Poetics of Space" remains one of the most appealing and lyrical explorations of home. Bachelard takes us on a journey, from cellar to attic, to show how our perceptions of houses and other shelters shape our thoughts, memories, and dreams.
