Full description for Sketches of Etruscan Places and Other Italian Essays
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.
