Etruscan Places: Travels Through Forgotten Italy (Tauris Parke Paperbacks) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Etruscan civilization, which flourished from the eight until the fifth centuries BC in what is now Tuscany, is one of the most fascinating and mysterious in history. An uninhibited, elemental people, the Etruscans enthralled D. H. Lawrence, who craved their "old wisdom," the secret of their vivacity and love of life. The exhilaration of Lawrence in his Etruscan adventures stands in stark contrast to his intimations of the darkness of Mussolini's Italy at a time when Europe was beginning its inexorable drift toward tragedy.

About the Author

D. H. Lawrence (1885-1930), novelist, poet, playwright, painter, critic, is an icon of twentieth century literature. He spent his life traveling -- to America, Italy, Austria, Mexico, the South of France, and Sri Lanka -- and it was during this time that he wrote such classics as Sea and Sardinia, The Plumed Serpent and Lady Chatterley's Lover. He is also the author of Mornings in Mexico, The White Peacock, The Rainbow, Sons and Lovers, and Women in Love.
