'You are about to begin reading Italo Calvino's new novel, If on a winter's night a traveler. Relax. Concentrate'
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.
This is not the British Winston Churchill. This Winston Churchill is an American novelist born in St Louis, Missouri in 1871. Both Churchills communicated with each other and because the American Churchill was the first to publish, Sir Winston Churchill published his works under the name Winston S Churchill. The American Churchill was an officer in the U S Navy. He also was a novelist, essayist, and poet. His novels written in a naturalist style often expressed his political views. In 1898 Churchill published his first novel The Celebrity. A Traveller in War-Time was written about the period Churchill spent in England and France in 1917. He speaks of the British people voluntarily reducing their food supply to help the troops and the quality of the British military. Churchill's writing makes his experiences come alive for his readers.
