The attached article is an account by a learned traveler who journeyed to that one plot of ground on the isle of Skyros that will forevermore be England - the grave of the English poet Rupert Brooke (1887 - 1915). The literati who wrote the attached article went to some length imparting the significance of Skyros throughout all antiquity and it's meaning to the world of letters:
"I wonder how many people will visit this remote island to see the grave? It means long and weary journeying, and will be a real pilgrimage. From the sea, just off Tris Boukes Bay, the monument can just be seen, with it's white Pentelic marble showing clear through the olive trees, the only visible sign of man or his works at this end of the island."
The first headstone can be seen in the image above.
