The next we hear of Lawrence writing poetry on any scale is in the latter part of 1928, when he had returned more or less permanently to Europe from America. Having given up his house in Italy (the Villa Mirenda, near Florence, where Lady Chatterley had been written), and after travelling in Switzerland and Germany, Lawrence was wintering in a hotel in the town of Bandol in the South of France, back in his favourite locale on the shores of the Mediterranean, where much of Birds, Beasts was written, and the inspiration one year later for Last Poems.
