Seven Pillars of Wisdom (Wordsworth Classics of World Literature)

T. E. Lawrence


As Angus Calder states in his advent to this variation, Seven Pillars of knowledge is likely one of the significant statements in regards to the combating event of the 1st international War'. Lawrence's more youthful brothers, Frank and may, were killed at the Western entrance in 1915. Seven Pillars of knowledge, written among 1919 and 1926, tells of the greatly diversified crusade opposed to the Turks within the heart East - one that encompasses gross acts of cruelty and revenge and leads to a welter of stink and corpses within the disgusting 'hospital' in Damascus. Seven Pillars of knowledge isn't any 'Boys personal Paper' story of Imperial triumph, yet a fancy paintings of excessive literary aspiration which stands within the culture of Melville and Dostoevsky, and along the writings of Yeats, Eliot and Joyce.
