About the Authors
  • This volume contains almost all of the letters D. H. Lawrence wrote in the last fifteen months of his life: 763 letters, the majority previously unpublished. Despite his failing strength, Lawrence was in constant communication with publishers and agents. He continued to write frequently to his sisters and friends. There is no new fiction for Lawrence to discuss, but there are paintings, poems, the major essays Pornography and Obscenity and A Propos of 'Lady Chatterley's Lover', articles, and his last work Apocalypse. The most dramatic episodes of these months were the seizure of the Pansies manuscript, and the police raid on an exhibition of Lawrence's paintings and the subsequent trial. The subject of his illness becomes ominously more prominent, and Lawrence apologises for letters which lack his customary vitality. The volume includes an introduction, maps, illustrations, chronology and index; full notes identify persons and explain Lawrence's allusions.

    Reviews & endorsements

    'The splendid Cambridge Edition of the Letters of D. H. Lawrence is most welcome. It has all the virtues of a good modern scholarly edition of a writer's letters. Though one has already been familiar with many aspects of Lawrence's personality in his other writings, this comprehensive edition of his letters projects a cohesive self-portriat of the living artist.' English Studies: A Journal of English Language and Literature
