Constantinople (Hesperus Classics Series), Edmondo De Amicis

Constantinople (Hesperus Classics Series), Edmondo De AmicisHere in its first English translation, Constantinople is one of the most evocative accounts ever written about an exotic city. With a Foreword by Umberto Eco.PJourneying to Constantinople by boat, Edmondo de Amicis is initially dismayed to discover that his first glimpse of this much-awaited city will be one obscured and distorted by fog. Yet as they travel nearer, he comes to appreciate that this slow unveiling#151;with rooftops, domes, and minarets revealed one by one#151;is, in fact, perhaps the best introduction to the city he could wish for. As he moves around this most cosmopolitan of cities, he sees Greeks side by side with Turks, Armenians with Gypsies, and Catholics with Jews, and comes to a new understanding of the patchwork nature of life. Italian poet, novelist, and travel writer Edmondo de Amicis (1846-1908) is best known for his childrens story, Cuore. Обо всём этом и не только в книге Constantinople (Hesperus Classics Series) (Edmondo De Amicis)
