Belloc s travel-farrago is a whimsical narrative, in which four unforgettable characters walk through their native county of Sussex, to sing its songs, drink its beer, and praise it before Time changes it forever.
The Four Men offers, among other things, inns, saints, cheeses, jokes, stars, arguments, and poetry. Throughout, we find reflections on the impermanence of any earthly homeland and our deepest longing for an eternal Home.
Deacon Nathan Allen s fascinating annotation provides added richness, helping readers to enter more fully into this unique work, which also contains some of Belloc s own illustrations.
