Waterstones Says

Magical, moving and as lyrical as its subject, The Nightingale pays homage to the eponymous songbird and the inspiration it has yielded to musicians, artists and writers since time immemorial. 

Signed Edition

Come to the forest, sit by the fireside and listen to intoxicating song, as Sam Lee tells the story of the nightingale.

Every year, as darkness falls upon woodlands, the nightingale heralds the arrival of Spring. For thousands of years, its sweet song has inspired musicians, writers and artists around the world, from Germany, France and Italy to Greece, Ukraine and Korea.

Passionate conservationist, renowned musician and folk expert Sam Lee tells the full story of the nightingale. This book reveals in beautiful detail the ornithology of the bird, exploring its song, habitat, characteristics and migration patterns, as well as the environmental issues that threaten its livelihood.

From Greek mythology to John Keats, to Persian poetry and 'A Nightingale Sang in Berkley Square', Lee delves into the various ways we have celebrated the nightingale through traditions, folklore, music, literature, from ancient history to the present day. The Nightingale is a unique and charming portrait of an infamous yet elusive songbird.
