Summary

An elegant box set of travel classics about Italy, with an introduction from the celebrated author ofOut of EgyptandCall Me by Your Name. In this second volume of the Atlas Pocket Classics series, Andre Aciman introduces three masterpieces of travel writing about Italy. W. H. Auden and Elizabeth Mayer's definitive translation of Goethe'sItalian Journey(1786-88) is based on letters written during his travels. Goethe revels in descriptions of the people, landscape, and art of Italy, chronicling his enthusiasms and disappointments with an unrivalled romantic sensibility. For Stendhal, it is conversations and encounters that make Italy "his" inRome, Naples, and Florence(1817)--living characters demand his attention more than relics, ruins, museums, and galleries. And Henry James'sItalian Hours(1909) is a critical yet enthusiastic portrait of the country; he rhapsodizes about its history and culture while regretfully marking the disappearance of the past as Europe enters the twentieth century.
