More Description


In French Odysseys, Olga Augustinos offers a comprehensive treatment of French travel literature about Greece - from the mid-16th-century arrival of the first French travellers to the outbreak of the Greek Revolution in 1821. The result not only provides a composite portrait of Greece over two and a half centuries but also offers a revealing look at the evolving values and perceptual framework of the travellers themselves.
