John Worthen tells Lawrence's story from the inside for the first time: following him from his awkward and intense youth in a Midland colliery town, through period in which he produced his most vital and provocative writing and the years of exile abroad, to his premature death from TB in the South of France at the age of 44. He offers a bold reappraisal of the man who, throughout his life, considered himself to be an outsider and whose place within literary and social history has remained challenging and changeable even after his death. What emerges is an intimate and absolutely compelling study of a man in angry revolt against his class, culture and country, and engaged in a passionate struggle to live in accordance with his beliefs.

"A stylishly written, smoothly developed analysis of Lawrence's conflicted psyche."
"A intimate and compelling portrait...brings to light the many fascinating aspects of Lawrence's life."
"A fine, cogent and carefully reasoned book, and surely a major contribution to contemporary Lawrence scholarship."
"Worthen's single-volume life has the merit of pursuing a theme detectable in every phase of Lawrence's life: his perpetually renewed isolation."
"Lawrence blazes like a figure of myth from the documentary record of his existence. We are with Lawrence every step of the way as he rants and tramps around the world, quarrelling, moaning, scrimping and saving, writing and writing."
John Worthen taught at universities in America and Wales before becoming Professor of D. H. Lawrence Studies at the University of Nottingham, where he remains Emeritus Professor. His career as a Lawrence's biographer began in the 1980s and culminated in the celebrated D H Lawrence: The Early Years 1885-1912, the first part of the three-volume Cambridge biography (CUP, 1991-8).
