D.H. Lawrence and Norman Douglas in Florence
A lecture by Mark Roberts
The writers D.H. Lawrence (1885-1930) and Norman Douglas (1868-1952) were both in Florence for a while in the 1920s. They disliked each other, and in particular they fell out over the ambiguous legacy of a common friend, the charming con-man Maurice Magnus. Their quarrel resulted in a literary dogfight that polarised opinion at home and abroad – and brought out the best and worst qualities in both men . Mark Roberts continues his literary investigation of the historic Anglo-Florentine community.
Mark Roberts investigates the hostile relationship between the writers D.H. Lawrence and Norman Douglas, who were both part of the Anglo-Florentine community in the 1920s.
