This book is concerned with the analysis of various travel patterns in early-nineteenth-century verse. Examples are given to illustrate the main theme and its subsidiaries: the theme of wandering, in the first place, and then the topics of Time and Space, the archetypes, the travellers, the landscape, the land and sea journeys. These chapters were originally delivered between 1952 and 1961 as public lectures in the University of Athens.
Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill, KG, OM, CH, TD, PC, DL, FRS, Hon. RA (30 November 1874 - 24 January 1965) was a British Conservative politician and statesman known for his leadership of the United Kingdom during the Second World War. Widely regarded as one of the greatest wartime leaders of the century, he served as Prime Minister twice (1940-45 and 1951-55). A noted statesman and orator, Churchill was also an officer in the British Army, a historian, a writer, and an artist. He is the only British prime minister to have received the Nobel Prize in Literature, and was the first person to be made an Honorary Citizen of the United States. -wikipedia
Since we first landed in France, every step of our journey has reminded us that we were in an old country. Every thing we saw spoke of the past, of an antiquity without limit; everywhere our eyes rested on the handiwork of those who had been dead for ages, and we were in the midst of customs which they had bequeathed to their descendants.
