Pre-World War II Provence, "not a country nor the home of a race, but a frame of mind, " is the subject of Ford Maddox Ford's whimsically comprehensive exploration of the history, personal experience, and miscellaneous sensations that enrich his vision of the region. Illustrated by Ford's companion, Biala, "Provence" is not so much a travel narrative as an invocation, recalling to mind the fascination this quiet, fertile place held for artists and writers during a period of imminent cultural and political upheaval.
