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.

PORTRAIT OF A GREEK MOUNTAIN VILLAGE

Author: DU BOULAY, JULIET #: 2800
This book distils the author`s experience, as a young traveller and later an anthropologist, of a way of life which, although seen here in a Greek context, was in its essentials once common throughout the world. Description: This book distils the author`s experience, as a young traveller and later an anthropologist, of a way of life which, although seen here in a Greek context, was in its essentials once common throughout the world. Simple archetypal houses, terraced fields and plunging forest, the love of land and family, unceasing labour, a vivid communal life, and a continual drama of jokes and quarrels formed the texture of Greek village life for centuries until the changes of the last decades. The author has shown how the spiritual vision which evolved in these elemental conditions shaped people of great social dexterity, intuitive symbolic perception, and immense strength of character, resulting in a book that is not simply a work of scholarship but also the record of an inner journey.
