This Conclusion draws together the major arguments of the book and the ways in which the beginning of the seventeenth century exposes changing attitudes to the landscape. Re-evaluating some of the most significant developments in the period we have covered, and looking towards the language of sustainability, capital, trade, and urban development, this Conclusion ends the book with a brief analysis of Timon of Athens and the play’s exploration of money and responsibility, hospitality and husbandry. Demonstrating Shakespeare’s profound interest in the land as a site of economic potential, as well as a record of social relations, this book has identified the profound dynamic between cultivation and culture.
