Overview

Sea and Sardinia (1921) is one of the most entertaining and witty travel narratives one can read. It includes rugged movement by boat, bus, and train and is filled with colorful descriptions of the vital people and beautiful places of Italy. Steeped in the turbulent and impulsive personality of one of the most important modern writers, it captures the mood after the Great War. Lawrence found solace in travel after the war and looked curiously across the blue sea to mountainous Sardinia, eager for wonders there. Sea and Sardinia encourages today's reader to enter curiously into another time and place, to embrace emotionally its people, and to apprehend a journey to discover self as well as to chart land and sea.
