A Traveller in Italy
H.V. Morton Barbara Grizzuti Harrison (Introduction)
TRAVEL NARRATIVE 2002 PAPER 640 PAGES
The much-beloved, enduring account of Morton's ramblings in Italy. As in all his many travel books, Morton charmingly mixes a deep appreciation of the art, culture and, especially, the history of a place with his own keen observations, in this case the temples, tombs and villas of Tuscany, Lombardy, Emilia and the Veneto. His books are recently returned to print in handsome paper editions, this one with an appreciative introduction by Barbara Grizzuti Harrison.
