Chapter 7 explores Jarman’s interiority in Modern Nature, as he uses flowers and plants as symbols that evoke his personal history, as well as a collective history of same-sex desire. It attends to his discussion of the personal impact of HIV/AIDS, his need for individuation, for community and to bear witness.
