In January 1921, D. H. Lawrence and his wife, Frieda visited Sardinia, a Mediterranean island west of Italy. Although the trip lasted only nine days, Lawrence wrote an intriguing account of Sardinian life that not only evokes the place, people, and local customs but is also deeply revealing about the writer himself.

Remarkable for its metaphoric and symbolic descriptions, the book is transfused with the author's anger and joy. His prejudices and his political prophecies make Sea and Sardinia a unique and dynamic piece of travel writing. This Penguin Twentieth-Century Classics edition reproduces the Cambridge text, which restores censored passages and corrects corrupt textual readings to reveal -- for the first time -- the book Lawrence himself called "a marvel of veracity." Also featured are an illuminating Introduction by Lawrence scholar Mara Kalnins, a Chronology, Explanatory Notes, and an Italian Glossary.

Industry Reviews

Inspired by a journey to Sardinia in 1921, Lawrence interwove his perception of the society and spirit of place in a work of literature. The Book of Evidence (Kirkus UK)
