This article writes a geographical biography of the early 20th century nature writer and poet, Edward Thomas. The reason for doing so is to question the way in which geography has dealt with the symbolic life of landscape. It arranges itself around a single day walking in the footprints of Edward Thomas, across the South Downs – a range of chalk hills in southeast England, extending from Hampshire in the west to Sussex in the east – with the Edward Thomas Fellowship – a literary society, who work to preserve the memory of the nature writer and poet, in the landscape he wrote of.
