Written in 1916, during the last part of WW One, D.H. Lawrence shares his observations mostly in Italy on how the industrial age is teetering on the brink of changing the face of Italy - and the rest of Europe forever; and Lawrence mourns for what will be lost.
He introduces us to the people and their disappearing life style. He tells us how they live, and think, and what they believe. The old ways are contrasted with how the young adults live, and think and what they believe. Lawrence describes in detail the landscapes, the weather, the feel of the different places he visits, the aura of the old and the new, how all this effects the people.
The key thing that compels me to come back to this book, and haunts me since I finished it the first time is Lawrence's ability
to describe any subject he is focusing on with the brightest clarity I have ever encountered. He hiked through part of Switzerland, Germany and a bit of Austria and gives us much time with him in Italy. Along this entire journey he has an ability to totally absorb the essence of the people, the changes taking place, the yesterday's and the tomorrow's and he does not just translate them to his readers he infuses us with the knowing of these people and places as if we had been part of the knowing of them for years. Meaning the amount of time it takes to know a place and people intimately. He lets us look in a crystal ball and we see and know the old ways and see and know what the new ways will change. It is all here in Lawrence's amazing writings, captured forever like in a time capsule.
Phenomenal writing, I am hooked.
