Best known for the explicit sensuality of his novels, D.H. Lawrence was also a prolific poet who took his inspiration from the major emotional crises of his life. This selection of his poetry, which is accompanied by annotations explaining the biographical circumstances which inspired it, begins with his early evocations of love, and the desperate intensity of his relationship with his mother. Then follow the deep feelings surrounding his elopement with Frieda Weekley and the exultant celebration of their marriage, and the observations on gender and sexuality that Lawrence developed in his poems about nature. The last section, completing the emotional journey, contains his poems on the death of desire, and the ultimate desire for death.
