Publisher's Summary

Twilight in Italy describes Lawrence’s time as an educated working-class Englishman living among the Italian working men and women in the region around Lake Garda, from the Austrian Alps to the North, to Switzerland and finally Como and Milan. He captures the psyche of Italian peasants without ever romanticising or patronising them. His quick intuition locks onto their harsh, narrow lives and deep primitive emotions, exploring the very soul of Italy and its approach to life, death, belief, love, sexuality and change. His descriptions of the scenery and natural beauty of the country are evocative and find full expression in this masterpiece.

What the Critics Say

"Beginning with images and metaphor - loping strides, heads together, swaying skirts, bony vines, a frail moon, floating like icy on night, which is a river with currents - Lawrence paints an extremely sensuous and visual scene before moving into the abstractions of the neutrality of the law, the blood, the spirit, the infinite, the positive and the negative." (Paul Merrylees.)

    "Horrible narration."

    I SO wanted to listen to this travelogue but I couldn't bear the sing song narration. Cathy Dobson brings no meaning to the words. David Shaw-Parker was marvelous in the DH Lawrence short stories. If he had read this, I'm certain I would have loved it ...... or at least been able to finish it. So disappointing.

    "Worst narrator ever"

    I must agree with another reviewer Cathy Dobson was a horrible narrator, if you are expecting a book like Under the Tuscan Sun or some travel memoir, do not buy the book, it is not even close,and the narrator makes the book even worse, could not listen to more than 2 chapters, what a waste
