About this title:

Synopsis: 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. Eothen has the freshness of the immediate and the new. Kinglake kept it free of the details of geography, history, science, politics, religion, and statistics; it is far less about the countries and the cities he passes through that it is about himself. This is what makes Eothen a modern travel book, possibly the first and certainly one of the greatest of its kind.

From the Back Cover: In the autumn of 1834, Alexander William Kinglake and a friend, John Savile--recently back from a trip to Russia, Persia, and India--set out for Turkey and the Levant. The two young men went by way of Berlin, Prague, and Vienna to Semlin, where, having crossed the River Save and now in Ottoman territory, they proceeded to Belgrade. At Smyrna Savile was called home, and Kinglake, with his guide and interpreter, went on by himself--by ship to Cyprus and Beirut, then to the Holy Land, Cairo, and finally Damascus. As Barbara Krieger points out in her introduction, with Savile gone and Kinglake on his own in a foreign world, the trip suddenly became something different. Out of those experiences came Eothen.
