Description


"This book grew out of reflection on my own travels to various places. Without the experience of learning to see the world through the eyes of other people, I never would have formulated the thesis of this work. My favorite teachers have been those who have allowed me to experience more clearly a view of the world that was not mine by birth."


This book talks about looking at three different sacred spaces throughout history, and how word were used to build them.


It covers main titles:

1. How to Build Places with Words 

2. Abydos: Inventing a Landscape 

3. Delos: The Soft Power of Poetry

4. Mecca: Through the Eyes of a Pilgrim

5. A Storied Wilderness
