Son and Lover: The Young D.H. Lawrence by Philip Callow Book Summary:

Lawrence's growth to maturity was a painful and traumatic business, the impulses of the young lover constantly thwarted by the self-doubt of the mother's son. Philip Callow captures the extraordinary drama of Lawrence's life from 1885, the year of his birth, to 1919 when he quit England. In rich and intimate detail, Mr. Callow recreates the half-rural, half-industrial world of the English Midlands where Lawrence grew up and which haunted his imagination all his life; he traces Lawrence's relationships with women, particularly his dominating mother, his first love Jessie Chambers, and earthy Frieda, his partner in a stormy marriage. And he shows how Lawrence was able to transmute the contradictions of his personality into the stuff of art. "A surprising tale of metamorphosis which Mr. Callow re-creates better than any previous Lawrence biographer."―Julian Moynihan. "A happy balance of insight and sympathy.... His achievement is to let us see [Lawrence's] impulses and passions from the inside."―Margaret Drabble.

The Complete Novels of D. H. Lawrence by D. H. Lawrence Book Summary:

David Herbert Lawrence (1885–1930) was an English novelist, poet, playwright, essayist, literary critic and painter. His collected works represent, among other things, an extended reflection upon the dehumanising effects of modernity and industrialisation. Some of the issues Lawrence explores are sexuality, emotional health, vitality, spontaneity, and instinct.Lawrence's opinions earned him many enemies and he endured official persecution, censorship, and misrepresentation of his creative work throughout the second half of his life, much of which he spent in a voluntary exile he called his "savage pilgrimage". At the time of his death, his public reputation was that of a pornographer who had wasted his considerable talents. E. M. Forster, in an obituary notice, challenged this widely held view, describing him as "the greatest imaginative novelist of our generation." Later, Cambridge critic F. R. Leavis championed both his artistic integrity and his moral seriousness, placing much of Lawrence's fiction within the canonical "great tradition" of the English novel.

D. H. Lawrence: The Rainbow-Women in Love

D H Lawrence [Pdf/ePub] eBook

D. H. Lawrence: The Rainbow-Women in Love by Richard Beynon Book Summary:

In this Readers' Guide, Richard Beynon explores some of the most significant critical material to have been written about these novels since their publication in 1915 and 1920. The book provides readers with a clear introduction to Lawrence's place in literary studies, and offers a comprehensive account of the many shifts of critical opinion that have affected his literary reputation. Beginning with the early reviews and critical responses to the novels, the Guide moves on to consider Lawrence's declining reputation during the thirties and forties, followed by the so-called 'Lawrence Revival 'of the Fifties, with critical material reproduced from some outstanding studies of the decade. The enormous growth of interest in Lawrence during the Sixties is reflected in essays and extracts that tackle some of the central critical questions raised by the novels. The final chapters discuss the radical revaluation of the novels in the light of feminist criticism in the Seventies, and leave the reader with a sense of the 'postmodern Lawrence' of the late Eighties and early Nineties.

The Rainbow (The Cambridge Edition of the Works of D. H. Lawrence)

The Rainbow (The Cambridge Edition of the Works of D. H. Lawrence) by D. H. Lawrence Book Summary:

D. H. Lawrence expected The Rainbow to have 'a bit of a fight' before it was accepted, but 'The fight will have to be made, that is all'. It was suppressed, just over a month after publication, in November 1915. The American publisher would make thirteen further cuts and 'dribble out' the book quietly. In 1930 the British government would again consider suppressing a new printing of The Rainbow. Professor Mark Kinkead-Weekes gives the composition history and collates the surviving states of the text to assess the damage done to Lawrence's novel, and to provide a text as close to that which the author wrote as is now possible. The final manuscript, revisions in the typescript and the first edition are recorded in full in the textual apparatus so the reader can follow the novel's development and evaluate what outside interference may have done to it. Also included are explanatory notes to historical references and allusions, and an interior chronology of the book itself.

D. H. Lawrence The Dover Reader (Dover Thrift Editions) by D.H. Lawrence Book Summary:

D. H. Lawrence (1885–1930) created controversial works that explore the dehumanizing effects of modern life. But in his lifetime the novelist, poet, playwright, and essayist was regarded as little more than a pornographer. Today Lawrence is praised for his artistic vision as well as his integrity, and his books and other writings rank among the English literary canon.This anthology presents the complete text of Lawrence's masterpiece, Sons and Lovers. Additional features include an essay, "Psychoanalysis and the Unconscious," and the short stories "The Prussian Officer," "Odour of Chrysanthemums," and "England, My England." Additional selections include "Snake" and other poems.

The Complete Poems of D. H. Lawrence (Wordsworth Poetry Library) by D. H. Lawrence Book Summary:

Lawrence's reputation as a novelist has often meant that his achievements in poetry have failed to receive the recognition they deserve. This edition brings together, in a form he himself sanctioned, his Collected Poems of 1928, the unexpurgated version of Pansies, and Nettles, adding to these volumes the contents of the two notebooks in which he was still writing poetry when he died in 1930. It therefore allows the reader to trace the development of Lawrence as a poet and appreciate the remarkable originality and distinctiveness of his achievement. Not all the poems reprinted here are masterpieces but there is more than enough quality to confirm Lawrence's status as one of the greatest English writers of the twentieth century.

England, My England and Other Stories (The Cambridge Edition of the Works of D. H. Lawrence) by D. H. Lawrence Book Summary:

The fourteen short stories collected in this volume were written between 1913 and 1921, most of them against the background of the 1914-18 War. All but one were published in slightly different versions by magazines and periodicals on both sides of the Atlantic. Ten were selected and revised by Lawrence for his collection England, My England published in 1922 in the United States and 1924 in Britain. Some of the stories included in this volume are "Tickets Please", "The Blind Man", "Monkey Nuts", "Wintry Peacock", "Hadrian", "Samson and Delilah", "The Primrose Path", "The Horse-Dealer's Daughter", and "The Last Straw". The texts aim to recover Lawrence's own intentions, which editors and publishers all too frequently ignored or altered. Where possible, manuscripts and corrected typescripts are used as base-texts. The introduction traces the composition and revision of the stories, setting them in the context of Lawrence's life and work. The textual apparatus gives variant readings, and explanatory notes identify sources, references and quotations. The 1915 version of "England, My England" is given in an appendix.

D. H. Lawrence: Triumph to Exile 1912-1922: The Cambridge Biography of D. H. Lawrence (Volume 2) by Mark Kinkead-Weekes Book Summary:

This second volume of the acclaimed Cambridge biography of D. H. Lawrence covers the years 1912-22, the period in which he forged his reputation as one of the greatest and most controversial writers of the twentieth century. The story opens as the twenty-six-year-old Lawrence travels to Germany with Frieda Weekley, the wife of a university professor and mother of three small children. In his baggage on that prosaic cross-channel ferry was a draft of Sons and Lovers, the first of a group of novels with which Lawrence was to revolutionize English fiction over the next decade. This meticulously researched volume opens a new perspective on the central period of Lawrence's life and literary career. Drawing on memoirs, oral recollections, and unpublished manuscript material, it deals squarely with the vexing issue of Lawrence and Frieda's personal relations--issues that have more often been gossiped about than scrupulously examined. Above all it reveals the triumph of Lawrence's art during a decade of extraordinary trials in which, against all reasonable odds, the coal-miner's son established himself as the most innovative and notorious novelist of his generation.

WOMEN IN LOVE, D. H. LAWRENCE, LARGE 14 Point Font Print by D. H. Lawrence Book Summary:

Ursula and Gudrun Brangwen sat one morning in the window-bay of their father's house in Beldover, working and talking. Ursula was stitching a piece of brightly-coloured embroidery, and Gudrun was drawing upon a board which she held on her knee. They were mostly silent, talking as their thoughts strayed through their minds. 'Ursula,' said Gudrun, 'don't you REALLY WANT to get married?' Ursula laid her embroidery in her lap and looked up. Her face was calm and considerate. 'I don't know,' she replied. 'It depends how you mean.' Gudrun was slightly taken aback. She watched her sister for some moments. 'Well,' she said, ironically, 'it usually means one thing! But don't you think anyhow, you'd be—' she darkened slightly—'in a better position than you are in now.' A shadow came over Ursula's face. 'I might,' she said. 'But I'm not sure.' Again Gudrun paused, slightly irritated. She wanted to be quite definite. 'You don't think one needs the EXPERIENCE of having been married?' she asked. 'Do you think it need BE an experience?' replied Ursula. 'Bound to be, in some way or other,' said Gudrun, coolly. 'Possibly undesirable, but bound to be an experience of some sort.' 'Not really,' said Ursula. 'More likely to be the end of experience.' Gudrun sat very still, to attend to this. 'Of course,' she said, 'there's THAT to consider.' This brought the conversation to a close. Gudrun, almost angrily, took up her rubber and began to rub out part of her drawing. Ursula stitched absorbedly. 'You wouldn't consider a good offer?' asked Gudrun. 'I think I've rejected several,' said Ursula. 'REALLY!' Gudrun flushed dark—'But anything really worth while? Have you REALLY?' 'A thousand a year, and an awfully nice man. I liked him awfully,' said Ursula. 'Really! But weren't you fearfully tempted?' 'In the abstract but not in the concrete,' said Ursula. 'When it comes to the point, one isn't even tempted—oh, if I were tempted, I'd marry like a shot. I'm only tempted NOT to.' The faces of both sisters suddenly lit up with amusement. 'Isn't it an amazing thing,' cried Gudrun, 'how strong the temptation is, not to!' They both laughed, looking at each other. In their hearts they were frightened. There was a long pause, whilst Ursula stitched and Gudrun went on with her sketch. The sisters were women, Ursula twenty-six, and Gudrun twenty-five. But both had the remote, virgin look of modern girls, sisters of Artemis rather than of Hebe. Gudrun was very beautiful, passive, soft-skinned, soft-limbed. She wore a dress of dark-blue silky stuff, with ruches of blue and green linen lace in the neck and sleeves; and she had emerald-green stockings. Her look of confidence and diffidence contrasted with Ursula's sensitive expectancy. The provincial people, intimidated by Gudrun's perfect sang-froid and exclusive bareness of manner, said of her: 'She is a smart woman.' She had just come back from London, where she had spent several years, working at an art-school, as a student, and living a studio life. 'I was hoping now for a man to come along,' Gudrun said, suddenly catching her underlip between her teeth, and making a strange grimace, half sly smiling, half anguish. Ursula was afraid. 'So you have come home, expecting him here?' she laughed. 'Oh my dear,' cried Gudrun, strident, 'I wouldn't go out of my way to look for him. But if there did happen to come along a highly attractive individual of sufficient means—well—' she tailed off ironically. Then she looked searchingly at Ursula, as if to probe her. 'Don't you find yourself getting bored?' she asked of her sister. 'Don't you find, that things fail to materialise? NOTHING MATERIALISES! Everything withers in the bud.' 'What withers in the bud?' asked Ursula. 'Oh, everything—oneself—things in general.' There was a pause, whilst each sister vaguely considered her fate. 'It does frighten one,' said Ursula, and again there was a pause. 'But do you hope to get anywhere by just marrying?'
