This unique edition of D.H. Lawrence's "Selected Letters" includes correspondence spanning his whole adult life from early letters as a sixteen year old through to his final years in France. The language remains effusive and dynamic throughout as he corresponds with friends, lovers, fellow authors, editors, postmen, and nuns, discussing art, literature, love, life and the weather. The scrupulous and innovative work by editor James Boulton (giving comprehensive biographical and bibliographical details) coupled with carefully selected photographs means this collection tells the most vivid and personal story of Lawrence's life available today.
D. H. Lawrence is widely considered one of the great literary artists of the 20th century. His works include "Lady Chatterley's Lover," " Sons and Lovers," and "Women in Love." James T. Boulton is emeritus professor of English Studies at the University of Birmingham. He is general editor of "The Cambridge Edition of the Works of D. H. Lawrence" and of the 8-volume "Cambridge Edition of the Letters of D. H. Lawrence."
