Philippe-Sirice Bridel, the Natural Landscape, and the Swiss National Sentiment
When the young Philippe-Sirice Bridel traveled for a few days in the Swiss Alps in the summer of 1775, he became enthusiastic about the beauty of nature. The landscape of the mountains and the old man he met there helped to awaken a strong patriotic feeling in him, in which the wise and free character of the Swiss is reflected in their identification with their natural environment.
