EDWARD LEAR: THE CRETAN JOURNAL

Author: edited and with an Introduction by Rowena Fowler, 3rd edition #: 8756
When Edward Lear set off from Corfu for Crete in April 1864, it was in no very optimistic frame of mind. For the last nine years Corfu had been his winter home but after half a century of British rule the island had been ceded to Greece and Lear felt obliged to move. His livelihood required an immediate expedition to new scenes and he probably assumed that another book of Mediterranean travels would be likely to sell.
