Description

'Etruscan Places', or, 'Sketches of Etruscan Places and other Italian Essays' is the collection of travel writings from D. H. Lawrence, first published posthumously in 1932.
In this book Lawrence contrasted the life affirming world of the Etruscans with the run-down world of Mussolini's Italy during the late 1920s.
In preparation for these essays, the author travelled through the back roads of Tuscany with his companion Earl Brewster in the spring of 1927.
The volume includes the following essays; Cerveteri, Tarquinia, The Painted Tombs of Tarquinia 1, The Painted Tombs of Tarquinia 2, Vulci, Volterra and The Florence Museum.
