This biography of T. E. Lawrence does not stand up well in today's literature. Lowell's views of Arabs and their culture are reflective of the era prevailing at the time of writing. It's a very laudatory, somewhat biased view of Lawrence's participation in this history of the Arab revolt during WWI.

Some mention of the other participants in fighting the Turkish occupants of the disputed area were interesting. Often the writing was overwhelmed with side events and turgid detail . Not to deny the fact that Lawrence wrote that way himself, especially in Seven Pillars of Wisdom. I prefer the story in Lawrence's own words, having read the abridged version of this history in T. E.'s book, Revolt in the Desert (published in 1927).… (mais)
