Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Sklenicka has given us the first important study of the thematic value of [Lawrence's early life] for his fictional treatment of children, and for his lifelong fascination with childhood."--Novel

Booknews
Sklenicka shows that Lawrence made a significant contribution to the literary notion of what a child means and what it means to be a child--that he made childhood central to his aesthetic opinions and literary achievements, offering a theory of child consciousness that stands in marked contrast to both the Romantic attitude and the Freudian model.
