The Fox, The Captain's Doll, The Ladybirdby D. H. Lawrence
D.H. Lawrence wrote these three novelettes between November 1920 and December 1921. The ending of the first version of The Fox, written in 1918, is given in an appendix; Lawrence later added a long tail. The Ladybird also started out as a short story, but was completely rewritten; two manuscript pages omitted by the typist are included for the first time. The Captain's Doll arose out of Lawrence's visit to Austria in the summer of 1920. Professor Dieter Mehl gives the composition histories, and relates problems with typists and in publication. There is an appendix on the models for the main characters and the setting of The Fox.
