Vague terrain is a metaphysical realm - of the mind, nature, time and causality. Mal du pays. The groundless sadness called forth in a person's heart by a pastoral landscape. Vague terrain, liminal, transitional space traversing fact and feeling, and in which nature functions as a reflex.
Country pain, the mode. The sublime in crisis. The immensity and turbulence of Nature and human responses to it. Reactions of a kind of pleasurable terror, a percolating disenchantment; everything, including what is useless and even what is noxious, can grow, proliferate and despair.
