      msarki.tumblr/post/151461It was exciting to get my hands on this book of three travelogues which basically has D.H. Lawrence recording his travels through Italy during three different periods in his life, first by land, another by sea, and one ultimately ending as his own life did, below ground.  I made a few notes in my initial excitement over reading this book that are revealing, and some are worth repeating here:  Another book to savor this summer. I see resemblances here to the descriptive [...]

      Parts of the first two books (Twilight in Italy, Sea and Sardinia) were very interesting, and worth a reread at some time. Not so Etruscan Place, which I would still rate 3 stars.Of course these books are around a century old now, so they describe things which for the most part would be changed perhaps beyond recognition by now. However, it might be very interesting, on a leisurely trip to parts of Italy that Lawrence writes about, to try to make an actual log of how those things have (or have n [...]

      (Note: This is a review of Sea and Sardinia. I'm linking it to the Penguin edition because that's the most common version in print in the United States.)D. H. Lawrence: when he's good, he's great, and when he's bad, he's awful.Having just finished Grazia Deledda's Reeds in the Wind, I was excited to return to the same landscapes through a different pair of eyes -- Lawrence is one of my favorite novelists. What I got, however, was the worst of Lawrence. I had a distinct sensation of reading pages [...]

      A superb collection of travel essays and stories, starting with a trek southward across the Bavarian Alps past scores of crucifixes, a sojourn in a lakeside inn, and ruminations on viticulture. The second part of the book is mainly Lawrence's rather artistic reflections on Etruscan tomb culture and what their funerary art has to say about the human condition. Writing that is somehow both wonderfully descriptive of place, mood, and people and still stunning in its power to shock and enthrall.

    5. Carmen on said:

      I was a bit disappointed by this book. Although written very well, it missed things that I wanted to see. There were lots of descriptions of the people he met. Unfortunately, since this was right after World War 1, it has little to bear on today's population of Italians. I was really hoping to read more descriptions of places, so that I could compare them to nowadays. There were indepth descriptions of tombs, but not much else.

      Really wanted to like this as I have enjoyed other Lawrence works and any European travel-writing (especially historically rich and sentimental) is almost always a sure thing.However, I don't really know how to describe why I couldn't get into this; mostly, the writing was extemely dense and there was way too much 'Christ' and 'Him' and religious capitalizations which were distracting.

    7. Donna on said:

      I wanted to read this book, but the beginning was very slow for me. Definitely a book that I read because I am in the field and wanted to see what it was about, but wouldn't recommend it to anyone who wants to read for pleasure. It is VERY descriptiveold style of writing, but could appreciate many parts of it.

      This book got me more interested in reading about the Etruscan civilization and then to read more about the Sardinian Nuraghe culture going on at tha same time, in fact earlier.Lawrence's observations ate personal and often enlightening.

      I found this book at a used book store in North Carolina. It was published in the 1930's. It is a lovely read - part tour book, part musings on the lost Etruscan people and society.

      I doubt I would ever read this again, in fact I know I won't, but I am certainly glad I visited here once. I explain why here:mewlhousebpages/hub/DH-

      Now I remember why I disliked reading Lawrence. Pure torture!
