Aegean Notebooks : Reflections By Sea and Land

By Lorenzatos, Zissimos

Limni,Evvia,Greece: Denise Harvey, 2013. Zissimos Lorenzatos (1915-2004), essayist, thinker and poet, was arguably Greece's most significant man of letters in the twentieth century. In the Aegean Notebooks, a record of his observations and reflections while sailing among the Greek islands in the 1970s and 1980s, the special quality of his literary and philosophical gifts, and of the man himself, are vividly present. Along with everything a mariner yearns to bring ashore, all he has felt and experienced at sea with the wake of the boat unfurling behind him, Lorenzatos brings us in addition a lifetime's learning and contemplation. For him, life, and the living of it, was of the essence. As he observes in his foreword to these notebooks: '. . . life itself writes nothing, it erases everything that is written about it, and simply, irreplaceably lives, like the inaccessible "well of water springing up".'‘Zissimos Lorenzatos was the wisest Greek critic of his generation, and he left us a legacy of elegant thinking that extended beyond literature to the broader issues at the center of the human heart.’ Edmund Keeley, Charles Barnwell Straut Professor of English Emeritus, Princeton University. 138 pages, with a fold-out map of the Aegean, Denise Harvey , . 1st Greek Edition. Softcover. New Book from Greece. Illus. by Translated by Liadain Sherrard. 19.3 x 12.0 Cm.

The Ionian Islands to the Anatolian Coast : A Sea Guide, Corfu to S. Crete, Rhodes and Cyprus and S.Coast of Turkey s Coasts and Islands

By Denham, H.M.

London: John Murray, 1982. Designed for sailing in the Ionian islands and covering the west coast of Greece, Crete, rhodes, cyprus and the South coast of Turkey. As well as all the practical navigational details it is full of fascinating details of the places,including descriptions of traditional local sailing craft. "This sea-guide replaces the second edition of The Ionian Islands to Rhodes and Southern Turkey, The Levant and Cyprus. One of the merits of this revised and enlarged volume is the comprehensive coverage it gives of a fascinating cruising area that extends from Corfu in northwest Greece to Cyprus and the coastline of Anatolia in the east. For active yachtsman or armchair voyager Henry Denham is an enlightening and invaluable companion for a cruise south from Corfu to the other Ionian Islands - Cephalonia, Ithaca, Zante - with a diversion into the Gulfs of Pátras and Corinth, reviving memories of Lord Byron at Missolonghi and Saint Andrew at Pátras. Then, south again by the western shores of the Peloponnesus to southern Crete, thence eastwards to Rhodes and Cyprus and adventuring still further into the waters of the least-known part of the eastern Mediterranean to explore the magnificent coastline of southern Turkey. Yachtsmen know that in a Denham sea-guide they will find not only detailed advice on cruising, pilotage, prohibited areas, port formalities, berthing, laying-up facilities and supplies but also a wealth of historical and archaeological information about places and ancient sites en route."224 p.Illus. maps. charts. . 5th.edition.
