ISBN/UPC (if available): 81-291-0816-X
Written between 1919 and 1926, this work remains, like its enigmatic creator T E Lawrence, brilliant and controversial. One of the major statements about the fighting experience of the First World War, it describes the revolt in Arabia against the Turks, as it appeared to an Englishman who took part. Around this chronicle Lawrence has strung together an unexampled fabric of portraits, descriptions, philosophies, emotions, adventures, and dreams, recreating epic events with extraordinary vividness.
Seven Pillar of Wisdom is history, travel, literature, autobiography all combined into one, written by one of the twentieth century's most fascinating figures.
