9780141181059: Sketches of Etruscan Places and Other Italian Essays (Penguin Twentieth-Century Classics)

This volume contains seven essays D.H. Lawrence wrote in 1927 after visiting several Etruscan cities in central Italy. Six were published posthumously in 1932 as "Etruscan Places". Some appeared in magazines in Lawrence's lifetime, but he expressed deep concern that they be published in a volume with the photographs he had collected: in fact, only 20 of the 45 illustrations reproduced here with Lawrence's own captions were included in 1932.

Book Description:

Sketches of Etruscan Places contains seven essays D. H. Lawrence wrote in 1927 after visiting several Etruscan cities in central Italy. Eight essays about Florence and the Tuscan countryside form the second part of this volume. The introduction gives the genesis, publication, textual history and reception of the essays.

About the Author:

The son of a miner, the prolific novelist, poet, and travel writer David Herbert Lawrence was born in Eastwood, Nottinghamshire, in 1885. He attended Nottingham University and found employment as a schoolteacher. His first novel, The White Peacock, was published in 1911, the same year his beloved mother died and he quit teaching after contracting pneumonia. The next year Lawrence published Sons and Lovers and ran off to Germany with Frieda Weekley, his former tutor’s wife. His masterpieces The Rainbow and Women in Love were completed in quick succession, but the first was suppressed as indecent and the second was not published until 1920. Lawrence’s lyrical writings challenged convention, promoting a return to an ideal of nature where sex is seen as a sacrament. In 1928 Lawrence’s final novel, Lady Chatterley’s Lover, was banned in England and the United States for indecency. He died of tuberculosis in 1930 in Venice.
