Tonight we’ll be reading the opening to “Sea and Sardinia”, a travel book by the English writer D. H. Lawrence. It describes a brief excursion undertaken in January 1921 by Lawrence and his wife from Sicily to the interior of Sardinia. Despite the brevity of his visit, Lawrence distills an essence of the island and its people that is still recognizable today.
