Excerpt from In Argolis Average persons (how many of us there are!) know Introductory Note rather more about the Greece of Pericles than about the Greece of King George. This ignorance is not due to lack of interest. Most persons of a reasonable degree of culture usually have in their hearts an interest almost affectionate in the little country whose people once did so much to make the world wiser and better and pleasanter to live in, by creating and perfecting a literature and an art which are as beautiful and full of life to-day as they were thousands of years ago. There are some good things that never grow old. The world sometimes remembers, too, that it was the Greeks who drove back the barbarians of the East, and made civilized life possible for the rest of Europe. But Greece is far away, and not many of us see it for ourselves, almost none of us long and intimately enough to know truly the land and the people. One stays a week in Athens, makes hurried visits to Marathon, Eleusis, Corinth, Mycence, Delphi, Olympia, and writes a book.
