Overview

This book is a critical edition of D. H. Lawrence's complete essays about Mexican and Southwestern Indians, both those published in 1927 as Mornings in Mexico, and the other essays Lawrence wrote about them during his American years. The number of essays, therefore, is more than double that of all previous editions. The early version of 'Pan in America' appears here for the first time, as do previously unpublished passages in other essays. The texts are informed by all extant manuscripts, typescripts, and early publications, with a full textual apparatus revealing Lawrence's revisions. The volume includes extensive notes and appendices with information on Mesoamerican mythology and history. Lawrence's interest in and real affection for the region and its peoples went beyond the travel writing genre and these essays hold significance not only for those interested in Lawrence but also in the wider context of the cultures of Mexico and the Southwest.
