Christopher Wordsworth (1807-85), nephew of William the poet travelled to Pericles' Athens in 1832. The account of his tour, Athens and Attica (first published in 1836), is a scholarly companion to the history, topography, and myths of an area compact in dimension yet vast in terms of its contribution to Western civilization.
A new, extended edition of Christopher Wordsworth's stay in Athens in the winter of 1832/33. Christopher Wordsworth (1807-85), the "Great Christopher" of Winchester and Trinity College, Cambridge, was a nephew of William the poet. In 1832 he took a gap-year, after his brilliant studies in ancient Greek and Latin classics, to travel back in time over two thousand years to Pericles' Athens. The account of his tour, Athens and Attica (1836), is still the perfect scholarly companion to the history, topography, and myths of an area compact in dimension yet vast in terms of its contribution to Western civilization. This is the first time this important work has been made available in a paperback edition
