Insights into D.H. Lawrence's Sardinia
The volume offers a wide horizon on D. H. Lawrence’s search for an ideal primitive society in a pristine natural environment. It lends itself to an interesting comparison with today’s reality, with a particular focus on Sardinia. It combines literature and photography in order to analyse Sicilian and Sardinian society. The volume investigates aspects which have hardly been considered in depth in previous publications on Lawrence’s Sea and Sardinia, such as the strongly stressed ecological approach that makes Lawrence an incredible writer of our time, the role of Sardinian women as opposed to that of men as seen by Lawrence, and the importance of food and traditional costumes as persistent symbols of local identity.
