D. H. Lawrence, criticized, censored and dismissed in his lifetime, now stands as one of the major imaginative novelists of the early twentieth-century.
Clear, vivid and convincing, Gamini Salgado's introduction to the life and works of D H Lawrence, sets the writer firmly in the context of his times and:
* outlines his life and intellectual background, and their effect on his writing
* looks in detail at many of Lawrence's works, including Sons and Lovers, The Rainbow, his shorter fiction, poetry and plays
* examines Lawrence as a literary critic
* covers important people and places in Lawrence's life and their effect on him
Gamini Salgado was formerly Professor of English at Exeter University. His works include a book on Sons and Lovers (Arnold), an anthology of criticism of it (Macmillan) and a number of studies of drama and prose literature.
