Book Excerpt:

So the Italian, so the soldier. This is the spirit of the soldier. He, too, walks with his consciousness concentrated at the base of the spine, his mind subjugated, submerged. The will of the soldier is the will of the great cats, the will to ecstasy in destruction, in absorbing life into his own life, always his own life supreme, till the ecstasy burst into the white, eternal flame, the Infinite, the Flame of the Infinite.

These 'essays' are probably better described as short travel stories - Lawrence's meditations as he traverses through Europe. Well-written and providing useful insights into the author's ever-contradictory ways of seeing the world, Twilight in Italy is a good read for anyone interested in the mechan

It seems a great irony to me that I am now reading Lawrence's "travel" books simply because I have read all his major works and so this is all that is left. 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.
