D.H. Lawrence: New Worlds
About this book
This collection of new essays by internationally renowned scholars signals a turning point in D.H. Lawrence studies. The contributors join a consensus among scholars that the beginning of the twenty-first century offers an opportunity for a critical and scholarly reconsideration of one of the major writers of the modernist period. Such a reconsideration is especially pertinent for Lawrence, for in recent years political voices within the academy have called his achievement into question. The diversity of approaches in the thirteen essays of D.H. Lawrence: New Worlds demonstrates how Lawrence studies have profited from new methodologies of the last two decades. The volume includes essays on four of the major novels (Sons and Lovers, Women in Love, The Plumed Serpent, and Lady Chatterly's Lover), but also essays on 'Kangaroo' and 'Quetzalcoatl'. Other essays engage with Lawrence's poetry, plays, and travel writing.
