Meet the Author

D.H. Lawrence (1885-1930), novelist, poet, playwright, painter, critic, is an The White Peacock, Sons and Lovers, Lady Chatterly's Lover, The Rainbow and Women in Love. His hatred of militarism, openly expressed during the First World War, sparked a wave of vilification that forced him to leave England and embark on what he called his "Savage Pilgrimage." He spent the remainder of his life travelling - to America, Italy, Austria, Mexico, the South of France and Sri Lanka - and it was during this time that he wrote such classics as Sea and Sardinia, The Plumed Serpent and Lady Chatterley's Lover. E.M. Forster called him "The greatest imaginative novelist of our generation."

This 84 page essay was written in 1927 and describes D.H. Lawrence's experience visiting in a part of Mexico where the indigenous population speaks Zapotec (Oaxaca?). It is a fairly sensitive description of how the people live, how they survive, how they advance. It is written from the perspective of the times and so can seem harsh and degrading at times. There are moments of introspection and insight concerning such topics as the theater and how the white "monkey" defines his social mores. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a fresh picture of historical Mexico.

Great insight into the Mexico of the 1920s as experienced by D. H. Lawrence. Well worth reading. Glad to see a new edition.
