A philosophical historical past of that unusual yet prolific hybrid—the author as walker
From the peripatetic philosophers of old Greece to the streets of 20th-century London, Paris, and big apple, the figure of author as walker has persevered to conform throughout the centuries, the thinker and the Romantic giving strategy to the experimentalist and radical. From pilgrim to pedestrian, flâneur to stalker, the names could swap, however the job of jogging is still consistent, making a literary culture encompassing philosophy and poetry, the radical and the manifesto; a convention which this publication explores intimately. at the present time, because the determine of the wanderer returns to the leading edge of the general public mind's eye, writers and walkers all over the world are reengaging with the tips which lively previous generations—for the walker is once more at the march, mapping new territory and recording new visions of the landscape.
