The narrative of this chapter covers Harrison's early years in London and on the continent. It traces the influence of Sidney Colvin, Charles Newton, Karl Otfried Müller, Ernst Curtius, and Heinrich Brunn. During this period she published Myths of the Odyssey, a pioneer attempt to trace the development of myths over time through their representation in art. It describes her lectures at the British Museum, University Extension lectures, lectures at boys' schools, and at the Society for Hellenic Studies. She published in the Magazine of Art, Journal of Hellenic Studies, and Classical Review. Her social world is also described, as is her involvement with the theatrical production The Tale of Troy and her appearance in the title role in the OUDS performance of Euripides' Alcestis.
