QuotationI have been able to take a little time for reading in the woods, but have been trying to do too much especially with Richards' Mencius (getting excited about the ideograms and literal translations in the Appendix). [D. H.] Lawrence's Etruscan Places [London, 1932] is a book with which I am in harmony-I remember the day I discovered the Etruscans in the Villa Giulia. Of course L. has his axe to grind.
