This is the first volume of Lenacke Press’ all new parallel text book series, featuring Greek travel diaries by 19th-century writers translated from the original English into Italian.
The travel diaries in this book by J. P. Mahaffy and Bayard Taylor transport you back in time to the Greek cities of Athens, Sparta and Mani as they were 150 years ago 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 three great travelogues—each one appearing first as an Italian-English parallel text, then in Italian only (for the advanced Italian language learner) and finally in the original English only.
Students of the Italian language will find this parallel-text book time-saving and extremely helpful.
Students of English whose first language is Italian can also use this book to improve their English. For this reason, a Italian introduction has also been included in the book.
Because the Italian 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.
