Excerpt from Customs and Lore of Modern Greece

The traveller who approaches Athens for the first time, whether it be across that historic sea, over which, as the last morning of his journey breaks, the shadowy forms of opal-tinted isles float one after another into sight, until before him the Acropolis grows out of the early haze, framed in the hollow of Parnes, Pentelicon, and Hymettus, or whether it be along the rich vineyard-clothed shore of the Corinthian Gulf, in view of that unsurpassed panorama where Parnassus and Helicon rise beyond the bluest of blue waters, will probably find himself susceptible to a twofold influence: a sense, on the one hand, that is partly awe and partly gladness at finding himself at last face to face with scenes that have hitherto belonged to imagination, so familiar and yet so new, touched with the magic of youthful memories, and sacred, perhaps, from maturer associations; while, on the other hand, he can hardly fail to be possessed by an overwhelming feeling of wonder and delight at the loveliness of the nature around him.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Customs and Lore of Modern Greece It is among these dwellers of the upland pastures, whose lives contrast so markedly with the keen working mind, the restless, fretful activity of the Greek with whom the world is more familiar, the little trader of the coast towns, who fills the counting-houses of the West, and becomes the pioneer of petty commerce throughout the East - it is among these men, in whom the stationary life of the country is perpetuated, that we find any traces that may have survived of the old-world attitude of thought in its more intimate aspects, its domestic traits, its untutored feelings about life and death, its awe of nature, and its need of God.
