What inspires people to travel? What is the allure of Greece, and what happens to expectations once people reach this popular destination? Why do people take to the road in the first place, abandoning the comforts of home and routine? This course explores travels to Greece: visits to islands, mountains, villages, ancient sites as they are described in travel narratives. It leads readers from the Ionian Islands to Sparta and Attica, on to Northern Greece and the Aegean, conjuring up the history and mythology, civilization and wildness, heat and beauty that have lured writers from Homer to Byron, Flaubert to Freud, Mark Twain to Henry Miller, Virginia Woolf to Patricia Storace. It raises questions about the relations of travelers to the worlds they encounter but also the interior world they sometimes set out to discover. Films, novels, short stories, diaries, essays, letters, poems, paintings, drawings, photographs, and the Internet are rich sources of exploration.
