These books offer
a new and exciting approach to three of England’s greatest writers.
'One of the
best ways to get to know a person is to go for a walk with them
along the footpaths and lanes of their own countryside and listen
to their views and ideas.
As a teacher of
English Literature I have found this approach most enjoyable and rewarding.
The chapters are arranged as a series of walking tours in which,
quite literally, you become the writer’s companion. You accompany
them on their travels, meet the people who were important to them
and gain a fresh insight into their work. Literature ceases to be
just words on a page - it comes to life!
The tours are easy walking, of moderate length, and demand no special
equipment apart from strong comfortable footwear. And if you are an
armchair walker all you need is your imagination!
