This unique edition of D. H. Lawrence’s Selected Letters includes correspondence spanning his whole adult life from early letters as a 16-year-old 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 topics such as art, literature, love, life, and the weather.
The scrupulous and innovative work by James Boulton provides a rare critical assessment of Lawrence’s epistolary achievement, comprehensive biographical and bibliographical details, brief chronological and descriptive introductions to each section, and a full general index.
