This volume collects together the introductions and reviews for which Lawrence was responsible over the whole duration of his writing career, from 1911 to 1930: it includes the book review which was the last thing he ever wrote, in the Ad Astra Sanatorium in Vence. The forty-nine separate items include some of his most compelling literary productions: for example, the fascinating Memoir of Maurice Magnus of 1921-22, his only extended piece of biographical writing. The volume's Introduction not only outlines the literary contacts of Lawrence's career which led him to doing such work, but gives a fresh account of the life of a literary professional who regularly wrote in support of work in which he personally believed, and who also (rather surprisingly) wrote reviews of nearly thirty books. All the texts, including a number previously unpublished in Britain, have been freshly edited and are supplied with extensive Explanatory notes.

'Worthen has played a key role in bringing definitive editions of Lawrence's texts before the wider reading public; his new biography makes one want to experience these books all over again.' Times Literary Supplement '... stands as a scholarly and handsome companion to Cambridge's Late Essays and Articles ...'. The Use of English
