Greece Through the Eyes of Travelers
Conducted in English
Greece has long been considered a great challenge and
a place of spiritual intrigue to its many visitors. The land of gods and myths, of a glorious past and a
cosmopolitan present, it has lured generations of the finest British and American
authors and poets. In this course, you will have the opportunity to explore and better
understand the idea of modern Greece as it is reflected in the works of
Anglo-American travelers. Living, reading, and writing about the places you are encountering will
make your own experiences of those places much more exciting and meaningful. After all, as Henry Miller states,
“Greece is like the projection of your consciousness.”
