    1. D.H. Lawrence Simonetta De Filippis Paul Eggert Mara Kalnins Tim Parks

      David Herbert Richards Lawrence was an English writer of the 20th century, whose prolific and diverse output included novels, short stories, poems, plays, essays, travel books, paintings, 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, human sexuality and 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 At the time of his death, his public reputation was that of a pornographer who had wasted his considerable talents E M Forster, in an obituary notice, challenged this widely held view, describing him as the greatest imaginative novelist of our generation Later, the influential Cambridge critic F R Leavis championed both his artistic integrity and his moral seriousness, placing much of Lawrence s fiction within the canonical great tradition of the English novel He is now generally valued as a visionary thinker and a significant representative of modernism in English literature.enpedia wiki D.H._Law

    1. Herbie, as we were wont to call the Love and Lover man, lived on Lago di Garda, where I babysat my two year old grandson at Riva del Garda while his Mom was off working for a London law firm most of the week With classic errors in the Italian I had read for 34 years, I reassured him, Non preoccuparti, tua Momma sta andando, Don t worry, your Mom is going away.Herbie was further south, past the lemon groves in his day prior to WWI, my Riva was on the Austrian border, and there was smuggling acros [...]


    2. Crossing the alps to Italia inspires Lawrence to tediously overthink anything Italiano and attach existential complexities to every Italian thing along the way No dolce vita for D H Wah.


    3. I have enjoyed every book of Lawrence s, struggled with many, respected all, but I stand in awe of the beauty and majesty of this one Lawrence clearly enjoyed writing it so much that I wondered that he was able to keep his feet upon the ground When he walks in the warm sunshine and hears two friars speaking to one another, he manages with profound power to pull me from my doldrums and into his time to stand or walk with him When he clambers among the rocks in search of flowers, I cannot say a wo [...]


    4. I ve been reading this book on the Muni and the BART every morning, to and from work San Francisco to Oakland, Oakland to San Francisco Repeat, repeat Almost done It s a tiny book, a little slip of a thing A magic elixir for the odd stain on the train seat A soft and confiding voice in the din of transit warfare Someone said somewhere in a disparaging review of this book that Lawrence certainly didn t need to leave home to write it But of course he did Leaving home is what he did Repeat, repeat [...]



    5. I began reading this book to accompany my recent travels While Lawrence visited some of the same places I did, I didn t learn much about them I was fairly certain I wouldn t, as it s not that kind of book it s not a travel guide Things he sees, people he meets, places he s been trigger Lawrence s themes the passionate south vs the cold north, dark vs light, the old yes vs the new yikes , man vs womanI ll admit that I put the book down shortly after I began it, as I was not able or willing to dea [...]


    6. A bit of a struggle at first to get past the trail of crosses portion at the beginning, however, past that, D.H Lawrence was his normal insightful self He brings Italy to life with details of a culture with some highlights still alive and well and others long gone, yet, not quite forgotten even by those who may have never experienced it His honesty and clarity, his ability to see right into the heart of those struggling to move into the world that was coming like it or not is sometimes painful t [...]


    7. I feel rather conflicted about this book It was very well written but and I felt as if I was accompanying Lawrence on his trip across Italy, a country and culture I am very much in love with However, the book was slow at parts He did have some very insightful observations about industrialism s destruction of a peaceful way of life, and the human preoccupation with money It was my first DH Lawrence book and I am very much looking forward to reading .


    8. The writing contains all the hallmarks of Lawrence s unique ability to portray different scenes and cultures like a painter the detail selected with such sensitivity For me, he brought the Italy of his travels to life in a way which, though it hung on to reality, still conveyed the charm of the people and places he visited, making the the word Twilight so very evocative of the author s and his wife Frieda s experiences.


    9. Very personal insight into the author and his travels though Italy I loved the book and went onto read his other travel books as well You really get a first hand idea of what Lawrence would have been like personally Beautiful descriptive intuitive writings on his travels through the mountains and countryside Chronicals a place that probably no longer exists so untouched by man.


    10. I liked this Twilight in Italy, yes, but rated it four stars as if I really liked it The reason being it was so well written The subject not so interesting to me in total, but it felt as if I were in a dream of sorts Sea and Sardinia is beginning down to earth for me and I am interested in seeing how he brings the Queen Bee into the personal and intimate equation.


    11. There was much about this book I liked DHLawrence s gift for description and his over wrought style were right for a book about Italian travels However it was difficult for me to read his English stereotyping and prejudices about Mediterranean people and I had to remember when he lived and wrote.


    12. Parts of the book I loved, and parts of the book I kind of loathed There are exquisite descriptions of dances and other scenes But there are so many judgmental references to human beings as animals that it s than a little disturbing.


    13. While there are some wonderful descriptive passages, and his observation of things is interesting Lawrence can be judgmental and self important.Parts of the book were very engaging and parts of the book were annoying and grating The thing is, I don t think he meant for the grating.


    14. Wonderful writing, incredibly descriptive passages Lawrence s powers of observation second to none Only quibble was perpetuation of stereotype of Italians as sun people maybe they are Mostly about Switzerland and the Alps, so title a bit misleading.


    15. Always interesting to read a travelogue from the past D H described the end of the peasant or subsistence life of Europe as the industrial revolution takes hold Migration of Italians not only to America but surrounding countries for work in factories I enjoyed it but maybe didn t agree.



    16. Slow paced and a bit musings on God than I would like but his descriptions of the people and places are lush and gorgeous.



    17. Lawrence never fails to entertain and madden great for new acquaintance with stimulating philosophy and travel information.
