An intriguing account of Sicilian life that reveals as much about the writer as the place, people, and customs it describes

Written after the First World War when he was living in Sicily, Sea and Sardinia records Lawrence's journey to Sardinia and back in January 1921. It reveals his delighted response to a new landscape and people and his uncanny ability to transmute the spirit of place into literary art. Like his other travel writings the book is also a shrewd inquiry into the political and social values of an era which saw the rise of communism and fascism. This edition restores censored pasages and corrects corrupt textual readings to reveal the book Lawrence himself called "a marvel of veracity."

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. In January 1921, D. H. Lawrence and his wife, Frieda visited Sardinia, a Mediterranean island west of Italy. Although the trip lasted only nine days, Lawrence wrote an intriguing account of Sardinian life that not only evokes the place, people, and local customs but is also deeply revealing about the writer himself. Remarkable for its metaphoric and symbolic descriptions, the book is transfused with the author's anger and joy. His prejudices and his political prophecies make Sea and Sardinia a unique and dynamic piece of travel writing. This Penguin Twentieth-Century Classics edition reproduces the Cambridge text, which restores censored passages and corrects corrupt textual readings to reveal — for the first time — the book Lawrence himself called "a marvel of veracity." Also featured are an illuminating Introduction by Lawrence scholar Mara Kalnins, a Chronology, Explanatory Notes, and an Italian Glossary. "In January 1921, D. H. Lawrence and his wife Frieda visited Sardinia.
