Lahore, October 29, 2013 (PPI-OT): Dr. Naveed Rehan, Assistant Professor at the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, has published a book chapter in Lake Garda: Gateway to D. H. Lawrence’s Voyage to the Sun, edited by Nick Ceramella and published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing.
In her article entitled “Lawrence’s Travel Writing as Creative Nonfiction,” Dr. Rehan discusses themes of dualism, persona, and self-discovery in D. H. Lawrence’s Italian travel books – Twilight in Italy, Sea and Sardinia, and Etruscan Places – with particular emphasis on the theme of self and other.
She also discusses the conventions of travel writing in contemporary creative nonfiction as outlined by writers and theorists like Robert Root, Brenda Miller, Suzanne Paola, Philip Lopate and William Zinsser. Her contention is that Lawrence is an excellent model for emerging writers of creative nonfiction today, and that a perusal of his discursive writings – particularly his travel writings – through the lens of creative nonfiction can provide readers with refreshing insights, not only into the crafting of contemporary creative nonfiction, but also into Lawrence’s own art.
