Photographs by Dimitri.Travelers, poets, artists, even scholars, still go to Greece in search of something they feel no other land quite offers them. In this anthology the author tries to explore the various aspects of Greece through the writings of those who over the centuries have found in Greece not simply an object of study or a romantic haven but a challenge and an incitement that have stirred the wellsprings of both heart and imagination.

Book Description Denise Harvey (Publisher), 1987, 1987. Soft cover. Condition: New. Soft cover, stitched binding, reprint of 1964 London edition, 225 x 150 mm, 292 pages. Slight foxing to edges. Travellers, poets, artists, even scholars, still go to Greece in search of something they feel that no land quite offers them. Partly no doubt this is a by-product of the enormous prestige the world of ancient Greece acquired subsequent to the Renaissance; partly, too, it is due to the sheer physical beauty with which Greece presents one at practically every step. For Philip Sherrard the enigma of Greece was virtually a lifelong preoccupation. In this anthology he explores its various aspects through the writings of those who over the centuries have found in Greece not simply an object of study or a romantic haven but a challenge, an incitement and a reciprocity that have stirred the wellsprings of both heart and imagination. '.the whole Greece is what Mr Sherrard is after in this splendid anthology. The book is not for complete beginners, nor for travellers who, without experience of their own, might be lulled into expecting everything to be marble and wild thyme. I should advise reading [it] not before but after a first visit, or during a second, when the noble and lively writing will, as it were, bring out the scent of the country.' --Dilys Powell, 'The Sunday Times'.
