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.
I am reprinting here, in response to requests, certain recent experiences in Great Britain and France. These were selected in the hope of conveying to American readers some idea of the atmosphere, of "what it is like" in these countries under the immediate shadow of the battle clouds. It was what I myself most wished to know. My idea was first to send home my impressions while they were fresh, and to refrain as far as possible from comment and judgment until I should have had time to make a fuller survey. Hence I chose as a title for these articles, -intended to be preliminary, "A Traveller in War-Time." I tried to banish from my mind all previous impressions gained from reading. I wished to be free for the moment to accept and record the chance invitation or adventure, wherever met with, at the Front, in the streets of Paris, in Ireland, or on the London omnibus. Later on, I hoped to write a book summarizing the changing social conditions as I had found them.
