D.H. Lawrence's importance to the 20th-century literature extends beyond his achievement as a novelist: his uncompromising moral vision, his fierce puritanism, his vigorous devotion to the natural man defined a character in many ways more intense than those he created in fiction.
In SEA AND SARDINIA, this character stands revealed against the stoney background of Sardinia. The island's hard and independent people, its little inns, the unique costumes and character of each village, come to sharp and vivid life through Lawrence's prose.
"This book is rich not only with a portrait of Sardinia, but also of Lawrence--of his moral sense and the richness of his literary imagination. It is a walk in the company of genius." (B-O-T Editorial Review Board)
