About the Authors
  • This book is a critical edition of D. H. Lawrence's complete essays about Mexican and Southwestern Indians, both those published in 1927 as Mornings in Mexico, and the other essays Lawrence wrote about them during his American years. The number of essays, therefore, is more than double that of all previous editions. The early version of 'Pan in America' appears here for the first time, as do previously unpublished passages in other essays. The texts are informed by all extant manuscripts, typescripts, and early publications, with a full textual apparatus revealing Lawrence's revisions. The volume includes extensive notes and appendices with information on Mesoamerican mythology and history. Lawrence's interest in and real affection for the region and its peoples went beyond the travel writing genre and these essays hold significance not only for those interested in Lawrence but also in the wider context of the cultures of Mexico and the Southwest.

    • All the essays on Mexican and Southwestern American Indians collected together for the first time
    • Features detailed explanatory notes, textual apparatus, and earlier versions of several essays
    • Includes maps of the region, timelines and two of Lawrence's own sketches

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This is a magnificent book! The collection of essays covers almost all that Lawrence was thinking about the importance of the American world between 1922 and 1928 … For all Lawrence readers this is a volume to get, to dip into time and again for a refreshing voice of complete individual seriousness.' The Use of English

    'Crosswhite Hyde's edition can be unhesitatingly recommended to all libraries and scholars of twentieth-century literature.' English Studies
