Opis: Round My House - Hamerton Philip Gilbert

Excerpt from Round My House: Notes of Rural Life in France in Peace and War
There are two kinds of books about foreign countries, those written by passing travellers and those written by fixed residents. Each of the two kinds has its peculiar merits, and neither of the two can escape its peculiar defects. This book is of the latter species. The fixed resident is certainly the person who ought to write about a foreign country, because, unless he be singularly unobservant, he will know much more about it than the passing traveller, and yet there are peculiar difficulties in his case. Habit, in course of time, makes things seem matters of course to him which would strike the passing tourist as interesting from their strangeness or delightful for their beauty. Every one knows that in course of time we all positively cease to see the pictures and furniture in the room which we constantly inhabit, so that a stranger will have a far livelier sense of then merits and defects than we can possibly have. This is the great obstacle to writing about what we see continually - the freshness of the eye is wanting, it is gone for ever, and cannot be recovered.
