This book contains D. H. Lawrence’s 1916 travel book, "Twilight in Italy". Lawrence’s first attempt at travel writing, it contains details about his voyage through Germany, the Alps, and Italy. Although fundamentally a travel book, "Twilight in Italy" is also a philosophic journey through alien cultures that deals heavily with the author’s own personal experiences when confronted with magnificent landscapes and mountains. This book is highly recommended for lovers of interesting travel writing, and it is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Lawrence’s work. The chapters of this volume include: “The Crucifix Across the Mountains”, “On The Lago Di Garda”, “The Spinner and the Monks”, “The Lemon Gardens”, “The Theatre”, “San Gaudenzio”, “The Dance”, “John”, “Italians in Exile”, and “The Return Journey”.
