Editorial Reviews

"By making available materials documenting Lawrence's earliest impressions of "abroad" along with their far more complex revisions in Twilight in Italy, the Cambridge edition undoubtedly enriches our understanding of Lawrence's first travel book, with the special brand of "thought-adventure" he made distinctively his own."
