Eothen Traces of Travel Brought Home from the East by A.W. Kinglake

Eothen Traces of Travel Brought Home from the East


Eothen Traces of Travel Brought Home from the East by A.W. Kinglake

In the autumn of 1834, Alexander Kinglake and John Savile set out together for Turkey and the Levant. When Savile was summoned home Kinglake, accompanied only by his guide and interpreter, went on by ship to Cyprus and Beirut, then to the Holy Land, Cairo, and Damascus. On his own in a foreign world, Kinglake used the solitary travel for prolonged self-scrutiny, and ultimately for liberation.
