(New - will be sent to you direct from the publisher in Greece) "Scholarly and brilliantly written account" of the influence of Greece on the development of English literature and the "Philhellenism which has become part and parcel of our western culture." 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.
