D. H. Lawrence and Italy : Sketches from Etruscan Places, Sea and Sardinia, Twilight in Italy Paperback

Edited by Michael Squires

Description

In these impressions of the Italian countryside, Lawrence transforms ordinary incidents into passages of intense beauty.

Twilight in Italy is a vibrant account of Lawrence's stay among the people of Lake Garda, whose decaying lemon gardens bear witness to the twilight of a way of life centuries old.

In Sea and Sardina, Lawrence brings to life the vigorous spontaneity of a society as yet untouched by the deadening effect of industrialization. And Etruscan Places is a beautiful and delicate work of literary art, the record of "a dying man drinking from the founts of a civilization dedicated to life."
