Review:

"The Life of D. H. Lawrence offers a detailed, well-informed account of Lawrence's life an literary career. Andrew Harrison's presentation of the life is well-balanced and persuasive, while his interpretations of the works are fresh and insightful. The book draws on new information and even previously unknown writings. This very readable biography makes it clear that D. H. Lawrence was one of the greatest writers - and most fascinating personalities - of the first half of the 20th century." Keith Cushman, University of North Carolina at Greensboro "Andrew Harrison has written an accessible, scholarly biography that draws upon recently discovered letters and other material to create a fine, fresh portrait of Lawrence." Michael Squires,author of D. H. Lawrence and Frieda: A Portrait of Love and Loyalty.

From the Back Cover:

Complete with fresh perspectives, and drawing on the latest scholarship and biographical sources, The Life of D. H. Lawrence spans the full range of his intellectual interests and creative output to offer new insights into Lawrence's life, work, and legacy.

This comprehensive biography delves into his major works, as well as his lesser-known writings and artwork, in order to reassess the innovative, challenging, and subversive aspects of Lawrence's personality and writing. The book also takes account of significant new sources and recent discoveries about the author's life and writings, including new correspondence, a short manuscript written in 1923-4, new evidence for important influences on his major novels, and two previously unpublished images of the author. Throughout, the author emphasizes Lawrence's gregarious nature, his desire to collaborate with others, and his adaptability to different social situations. He also pays particular attention to Lawrence's many interactions with literary advisors, editors, agents, publishers, and printers - a broad spectrum of publishing relationships that were required for him to work as a professional writer.

Combining new material with astute commentary, this biography provides a deeper, more nuanced understanding of one of the most prolific and controversial authors of the twentieth century.
