The Cambridge Edition provides texts of all of D. H. Lawrence's works which are as close as can now be determined to those he would have wished to see printed. The texts are established through rigorous collation of all extant materials, from draft manuscripts to first book publication, identifying errors made by copyists, typists and printers; house-styling by printers; and censorship and bowdlerisation by publishers. The Introduction to each volume gives details of the composition history, publication and reception; the Textual Apparatus records all variants. The Explanatory notes gloss references and allusions, and document sources; the Appendixes include early versions, draft manuscript material, maps and locations essays, historical essays; some volumes have Glossaries of dialect or foreign words.
General Editors: James T. Boulton; M. H. Black; Paul Poplawski; John Worthen
