Short Description for Birds, Beasts and Flowers 'Birds, Beasts and Flowers' is one of the greatest books by an English poet in the twentieth century. Of Melville's achievement in Moby Dick, Lawrence says, when he 'gives us his sheer apprehension of the world, then he is wonderful, his book commands a stillness in the soul, an awe'. This is what Lawrence himself achieves in this volume.

Full description for Birds, Beasts and Flowers
Birds, Beasts and Flowers (1923) was the volume that Lawrence himself described as his best collection of poetry. Composed in various locations during his exile-in Italy, France, Germany and the United States-this long collection occupies a crucial place in the development of his poetry and is that most unusual of creations: a masterpiece of modernist nature writing. This version offers the full text of the first British edition (which included the poems from the short 'Tortoises' volume, unlike the US edition).
