Description

This volume collects together the introductions and reviews for which D. H. Lawrence was responsible over the whole duration of his writing career, from 1911 to 1930: it includes the book review which was the last thing he ever wrote, in the Ad Astra Sanatorium in Vence. The forty-nine separate items include some of his most compelling literary productions: for example, the fascinating Memoir of Maurice Magnus of 1921-2, his only extended piece of biographical writing. The volume's Introduction not only outlines the literary contacts of Lawrence's career which led him to doing such work, but gives a fresh account of the life of a literary professional who regularly wrote in support of work in which he personally believed, and who also (rather surprisingly) wrote reviews of nearly thirty books. All the texts, including a number previously unpublished in Britain, have been edited and are supplied with extensive explanatory notes.

Review quote

'... stands as a scholarly and handsome companion to Cambridge's Late Essays and Articles ...' The Use of English 'Their editorial efforts also are most impressive ... provides a fascinating outline of Lawrence's career as editor, translator and reviewer. Their commentary, in particular the impressively full explanatory notes, offer a most generous wealth of miscellaneous information ...' Dieter Mehl, Universitat Bonn
