This fascinating volume contains a collection of travel writings by D. H. Lawrence, first published after his death in 1932. In this text Lawrence compares the vibrant world of the Etruscan civilization with the dilapidation of Benito Mussolini's Italy during the late 1920s. The Etruscan civilization is the relatively modern moniker given to the civilization originating from ancient Italy in the areas of modern Tuscany, western Umbria, and northern Lazio. Not much is known of the Etruscans, and in this fascinating exploration of their culture, Lawrence pieces together what he can in order to furnish a unique insight into this lost race. The chapters of this volume include: D. H. Lawrence, Cervereri, Targuinia, The Painted Tombs of Tarquinia, Vulci, and Volterra. We are republishing this antiquarian volume now complete with a new prefatory biography of the author.

Sketches of Etruscan Places 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; 'The Florence Museum' is published for the first time here. Some appeared in magazines in Lawrence's lifetime, but he expressed a wish that they be published in a volume with the photographs he had collected; in fact, only twenty of the forty-five illustrations here reproduced with Lawrence's own captions were included in 1932. Eight essays about Florence and the Tuscan countryside form the second part of this volume. The texts have been established by checking manuscripts, typescripts, proofs and periodical and book publications. The introduction gives the genesis, publication, textual history and reception of the essays.

David Herbert Richards Lawrence (1885-1930) was an English writer of the 20th century, whose prolific and diverse output included novels, short stories, poems, plays, essays, travel books, translations, literary criticism, and personal letters. His collected works represent an extended reflection upon the dehumanizing effects of modernity and industrialisation. In them, Lawrence confronts issues relating to emotional health and vitality, spontaneity, sexuality, and human instinct. Lawrence's opinions earned him many enemies and he endured official persecution, censorship, and misrepresentation of his creative work throughout the second half of his life, much of which he spent in a voluntary exile he called his "savage pilgrimage." E. M. Forster, in an obituary notice, challenged this widely held view, describing him as "the greatest imaginative novelist of our generation." Lawrence is perhaps best known for his novels Sons and Lovers, The Rainbow, and Lady Chatterley's Lover. Within these he explores the possibilities for life and living within an Industrial setting. His other works include: The White Peacock (1911), The Widowing of Mrs Holroyd (1914), The Lost Girl (1920), St. Mawr (1925), The Man Who Died (1931) and The Fight for Barbara (1933).

Power And Place In Etruria

This volume fills a gap in the study of an important, yet neglected case of state formation, by taking a landscape perspective to Etruria. Simon Stoddart examines the infrastructure, hierarchy/heterarchy and spatial patterns of the Etruscans over time to investigate their political development from a new perspective. The analysis both crosses the divide from prehistory to history and applies a scaled analysis to the whole region between the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Arno and Tiber rivers, with special focus on the neglected region between Populonia on the coast and Perugia and the north Umbrian region adjoining the Apennines. Stoddart uncovers the powerful places that were in dynamic tension not only between themselves, but also with the internal structure constituted by the descent groups that peopled them. He unravels the dynamically changing landscape of changing boundaries and buffer zones which contained robust urbanism, as well as less centralized, polyfocal nucleations.

D H Lawrence S Italian Travel Literature And Translations Of Giovanni Verga

While travel literature, particularly the Italian travel literature of D. H. Lawrence - Twilight in Italy (1916), Sea and Sardinia (1921), and Etruscan Places (1927; 1932) - has received a great deal of attention in recent years, nobody has examined this work from a Bakhtinian viewpoint. This approach allows us a unique perspective as well as a new appreciation of both Lawrence and Mikhail Bakhtin. This is also true with respect to translation studies where the reader will find Lawrence's work on Giovanni Verga presented in a new and suggestive fashion. In short, this book provides new insights into D. H. Lawrence's relationship to the Italian Other (as well as charts the permutations within himself). This book makes a valuable contribution to our understanding of two of the greatest literary figures of the twentieth century, D. H. Lawrence and Mikhail Bakhtin.

"A lifelong love affair with Italy prompted travel photographer John Heseltine to create his own visual record of a unique series of journeys he made along five of the ancient Roman roads: the Via Appia, which extends from Rome to the great port of Brindisi; the Via Cassia to Siena and Florence; the Via Flaminia to Fano; the Via Aurelia to Ventimigli; and the Via Emilia from Milan to Rimini. These routes offer a natural framework to a photographic record of the varied regions of Italy and glimpses of how they have evolved over two thousand years, with insight into the fusion of old and new that gives Italy its distinctive character."--BOOK JACKET.

Egypt, Greece, and Rome is regarded as one of the best general histories of the ancient world, having sold more than 80,000 copies in its first two editions.

Beginning with the early Middle Eastern civilizations of Sumer, and continuing right through to the Islamic invasions and the birth of modern Europe after the collapse of the Roman empire, the book ranges beyond political history to cover art and architecture, philosophy, literature, society, and economy. A wide range of maps, illustrations, and photographs complements the text. This third edition has been extensively revised to appeal to the general reader with several chapters completely rewritten and a great deal of new material added, including a new selection of images.

So many questions surround the key figures in the English literary canon, but most books focus on one aspect of an author's life or work, or limit themselves to a single critical approach. D. H. Lawrence is a comprehensive, user-friendly guide which: * offers basic information on Lawrence's, contexts and works * outlines the major critical issues surrounding his works, from the time they were written to the present * explain the full range of often very different critical views and interpretation * offer guides to further reading in each area discussed. This guidebook has a broad focus but one very clear aim: to equip you with all the knowledge you need to make your own new readings of the work of D. H. Lawrence.
