Overview

D.H. Lawrence often wrote for newspapers in his last years not only because he needed the money, but because he enjoyed producing short articles at the prompting of editors. He also wrote substantial essays such as the contentious introduction to his own volume of Paintings and the highly controversial Pornography and Obscenity. Written between 1926 and Lawrence's death in 1930, all thirty-nine articles are collected and edited in this volume, including two previously unpublished autobiographical pieces.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...the writings reflect the immense versatility and variation in quality evident throughout Lawrence's productive literary career. Highly Recommended." J.E. Steiner, emerita, Drew University

"To read these wonderful essays, and the many other pieces in this volume, is to reacquaint onself with the lyrical and visionary brilliance of Lawrence's art—even when the passion and insight are compressed into the limiting format of a newspaper article." English Literature in Transition, Peter Balbert, Trinity University
