Series: Routledge Guides to Literature
So many questions surround the key figures in the English literary canon, but most books focus on one aspect of an author's life or work, or limit themselves to a single critical approach. D. H. Lawrence is a comprehensive, user-friendly guide which:
* offers basic information on Lawrence's, contexts and works
* outlines the major critical issues surrounding his works, from the time they were written to the present
* explain the full range of often very different critical views and interpretation
* offer guides to further reading in each area discussed.
This guidebook has a broad focus but one very clear aim: to equip you with all the knowledge you need to make your own new readings of the work of D. H. Lawrence.
'An excellent starting point for students who are new to Lawrence's work - and a refresher course for those who would like to keep up to date with criticism.' - Mantex Newsletter
Fiona Becket lectures in twentieth-century English literature at the University of Leeds. She is the author of D.H. Lawrence: The Thinker as Poet (1997).
