9780140187816: Apocalypse: And the Writings on Revelation (Penguin Twentieth Century Classics)

Written during the winter of 1929-30 and his last major work, Apocalypse is Lawrence's radical criticism of the political, religious and social structures that have shaped Western civilization. In his view the perpetual conflict within man, in which emotion, instinct and the senses vie with the intellect and reason, has resulted in society's increasing alienation from the natural world. Yet Lawrence's belief in humanity's power to regain the imaginative and spiritual values which alone can revitalize our world also makes Apocalypse a powerful statement of hope. Presenting his thoughts on psychology, science, politics, art, God and man, and including a fierce protest against Christianity, Apocalypse is Lawrence's last testament, his final attempt to convey his vision of man and of the cosmos.

Apocalypse is a radical criticism of our civilisation and a statement of Lawrence's belief in man's power to create 'a new heaven and a new earth'. This edition is the first to reproduce Lawrence's final corrected text on the basis of a thorough examination of the surviving manuscript and typescript.
