The main issue is the nomenclature, because "travel book" sounds as banal and insipid as it should hopefully ever be possible to be in the fiel

Apesar do título do livro ser "Crepúsculo em Itália", D. H. Lawrence não fala assim tanto acerca de Itália. Melhor ainda, fala, mas foca-se essencialmente nas impressões com que vai ficando durante a viagem que faz do Sul da Alemanha ao Norte de Itália.
