Huxley reveals his thoughts on the subject of travelling in general and tourism in particular. He compares walking to motoring, looks for the traveller's-eye view in literature, weighs up his selection of guidebooks, analyzes the effects of sunglasses on the landscape, dissects our attitudes towards town and country and recomends some reading matter for a journey.. NOTA: El libro no está en español, sino en inglés.Contraportada:
'Along the Road' is a marvellous collection of twenty-two essays on Huxley's travels across Europe in the 1920s. With inimitable wit and style, he not only contemplates the subject of travel in general, analysing the effects of sunglasses on the landscape and recommending the best reading matter for a journey (namely 'the half-size edition of the 'Encyclopaedia Britannica''), but also offers us singular and perceptive portraits of the people and places he visits.
Whether he is awestruck by the solemnity of daily life in the mountain monastery at Montesenario, or full of boyish enthusiasm for the perfect flatness of the Dutch landscape, 'the rationalist's paradise', Huxley is the perfect travelling companion.
'For me, travelling is a vice... Like other vices, it is imperious, demands its victim's time and money, energy and the sacrifice of his comfort.'
"'Along the Road' is a collection of brilliant and amusing essays. Huxley is one of the best writers of his generation."
"To our amused delight, Huxley passionately deplores the vice of travelling without a purpose, and charmingly confesses his traveller's curiosity about people which makes them enchanting until he comes to know them. We laugh with him, seeing our own weaknesses exposed. His convictions are proclaimed with a warm eloquence, and the chapters on Brueghel, Rimini and Alberti are truly brilliant and invigorating."
