Descrizione sommaria in inglese della geografia della Gran Bretagna e dell'Irlanda (2 pagine formato doc)
England has an area of about 130,000 square kilometres and a population of nearly 48 million. It is the largest and most densely populated part of the United Kingdom. It is separated from the continent of Europe by the English Channel and the North Sea and is bordered to the north by Scotland and to the west by Wales. Northern England is mountainous; the highest points are in the Lake District, in the north -west. There are hills in southern and south-western England. Central England is a large plain and most of the eastern part of the country is flat. The Lake District is famous because two poets, called W. Wordsworth and S.T: Coleridge, went there to compose “The Lyrical Ballads” in 1798. The 2nd edition in 1800 was “Preface; The Manifesto of British Romanticism”. This preface is considerate the summary of the Romanticism laws and it analyses the inspiration from the nature. The longest rivers are the Thames and the Severn. The Thames is famous because it traversed London, the capital, the Severn is the longest of the Great Britain. England has a temperate climate with quite cold winters (temperatures sometimes falling below zero) and fairly warm summers. Wet weather is common all through the year.
