Early Twentieth-Century Writers in Italy

Among the various reasons for self-exile in Italy were the search of health in the balmy weather of the south, or for freedom from persecution for unconventional lifestyles, or sheer joy in travelling and the pleasures of exploration and adventure.

M. Forster wrote A Room with a View about one such travelling family. Henry James wrote The Aspern Papers and the extraordinary short story The Pupil about exiles in Venice. D.H. Lawrence moved south to Sicily and Sardinia in search of relief from the symptoms of the tuberculosis that eventually killed him.
