Etruscan Places review Ö 103 Ë D H Lawrence visited Etruria in April 1927 It was his last pilgrimage There sprang from it a documentary account which is both literary guide and spiritual testament a global vision of the Etruscan civilizationD H Lawrence visited Etruria in April 1927 It was his last pilgrimage. It is a very readable and enjoyable book about a week spent visiting Etruscan relics in the mid 20s I hadn't read any Lawrence since the Beatles were performing and so I didn't realize what a fine writer he was His descriptions of the landscapes and the tombs are so very clear and accurate The narrative of the trip flows along naturally one event leading easily to the next I also owe him for a couple of specifics He coined the phrase temporarily important persons to describe politicians He also cleared up a uestion I had about classical imagery In Fiesole in the ruins of the old Roman amphitheatre you see images of what are clearly angels humans with wings on their backs I wondered about the origin of these creatures that I had always thought of as Christian According to Lawrence they go back to the Etruscans Since Fiesole was originally an Etruscan city it makes sense to me nowAt the same time his judgments are uestionable To put it roughly in a sentence Lawrence believed that the Etruscans of about 700 300 BC had lived largely in the way he wished to live and thought that we should all live Richard Aldington
