FAIR GREECE, SAD RELIC
This absorbing book presents the picture of Greece from the fall of Constantinople to the arrival of Byron as seen through the eyes of English poets, essayists and travellers, and shows that philhellenism has a much longer history than most people realize. The author reveals how our conception of Greece has been moulded by generations of writers when the country was under Turkish occupation and when its people, temples and traditions were regarded as witnesses both to its ancient splendour and its contemporary sadness.
