Welcome to our new parallel text series!
This is the second volume of Lenacke Press’ parallel text book series, featuring Greek travel diaries by 19th-century writers translated from the original English into Greek.
Each volume features complete accounts of different places visited and so they can be read in any order!
The travel diaries in this book are by Bayard Taylor, John Pentland Mahaffy, Rufus B Richardson, and Philip S Marden, who traveled to Messenia, Corinth, Thermopylae, and Olympia, respectively, in the latter half of the nineteenth century. These travelogues and are not only a valuable source of historical evidence, but also an interesting observation of the everyday life in Greece at that time.
Designed for the language student as well as the lover of Greece and traveling, this convenient dual-language book features the four great travelogues in three different ways—each one appears first as a Greek-English parallel text, then in Greek only (for the advanced Greek language learner) and finally in the original English only.
Students of the Greek language will find this parallel-text book time-saving and extremely helpful.
Students of English whose first language is Greek can also use this book to improve their English. For this reason, a Greek introduction has also been included in the book.
Because the Greek and English text follow each other sentence by sentence, you will save yourself the trouble of having to look up an unknown word in the dictionary. As a result, you’ll find your reading experience all the more enjoyable.
