So many questions surround the key figures in the English literary canon, but most books focus on one aspect of an author's life or work, or limit themselves to a single critical approach. D. H. Lawrence is a comprehensive, user-friendly guide which:
* offers basic information on Lawrence's, contexts and works
* outlines the major critical issues surrounding his works, from the time they were written to the present
* explain the full range of often very different critical views and interpretation
* offer guides to further reading in each area discussed.
This guidebook has a broad focus but one very clear aim: to equip you with all the knowledge you need to make your own new readings of the work of D. H. Lawrence.
Fiona Becket lectures in twentieth-century English literature at the University of Leeds. She is the author of D.H. Lawrence: The Thinker as Poet (1997).
'An excellent starting point for students who are new to Lawrence's work - and a refresher course for those who would like to keep up to date with criticism.' - Mantex Newsletter
