From the Publisher"Mornings in Mexico and Other Essays, superbly edited by Virginia Crosswhite Hyde, brings together all of Lawrence’s essays about Mexico and the American Southwest [...] Somehow these essays have acquired a heft they never had before. The edition stands as a major accomplishment in a distinguished career."
-Keith Cushman, University of North Carolina at Greensboro, D. H. Lawrence Review
"Cambridge University Press as part of its D.H. Lawrence series has published still another definitive and scrupulously designed edition, Mornings in Mexico and Other Essays-a volume that also provides primary and secondary source material on Mesoamerican mythology and history as well as accessible avenues for further cultural investigation by Lawrence scholars. The central text, Mornings in Mexico, remains one of Lawrence's most important collections of essays, and the talented editor, Virgina Crosswhite Hyde, provides a complete apparatus of indices, footnotes, maps, biographical timelines, chronological frameworks, and manuscript provenance to further establish the significance of Lawrence's provocative and lyrical essays on Mexico and the American Southwest....Aside from the superb quality of Lawrence's essays, the most impressive item in this edition must be Hyde's fifty-five page introduction-a work of outstanding scholarly synthesis and analysis that reflects a sensitivity to the doctrinal art of the essays as well as a shrewd awareness of Lawrence's impinging biography and his complex, often frustrating dealings with publishers, agents, and editors."
