Summary

It's the story of a Sicilian peasant who rises to the aristocracy, ruffling feathers at all social levels, and it's a masterpiece of 19th century realism. Scotland on Sunday D.H. Lawrence's translation brings to life the Sicily of the 19th century. It will appeal to readers of classic fiction or anyone interested in Sicily. A fine and beautifully observed book which D. H. Lawrence must have enjoyed translating.'' The Observer
