This volume contains almost all the 763 letters Lawrence wrote in the last fifteen months of his life with an introduction, maps, notes, illustrations, chronology and index. Lawrence corresponded with publishers and agents, regarding Lady Chatterley's Lover, The Escaped Cock and Pansies. He wrote no new fiction, but there were paintings, poems, essays, newspaper articles, and his last work Apocalypse. There were dramatic episodes with the seizure of his Pansies manuscript, and the police raid on the exhibition of his paintings at a London gallery, with its subsequent trial.

'The splendid Cambridge Edition of the Letters of D. H. Lawrence is most welcome. It has all the virtues of a good modern scholarly edition of a writer's letters. Though one has already been familiar with many aspects of Lawrence's personality in his other writings, this comprehensive edition of his letters projects a cohesive self-portriat of the living artist.' English Studies: A Journal of English Language and Literature
"...what a continuously useful, revealing, clarifying set of facts, insights and sidelights--literary, critical, biographical--is provided by this magnificent haul of 5,534 letters in these stupendously well edited volumes. This collection, surely, ranks among the very best gatherings of modern literary letters. All praise to the Cambridge University Press and to James T. Boulton--who has had a hand in each volume--and to Keith Sagar, who has joined Boulton in steering Volume Seven, 1928-30 along." Valentine Cunningham, Times Literary Supplement
"This edition of Lawrence's letters will stand as a monument of modern literary scholarship; all research collections should own it." Library Journal
"Essential to the literary scholar, the Cambridge edition will also serve the general reader by assembling in an attractive, reliable, and complete format the correspondence of one of the century's most passionate and enduring voices." Magill's Literary Annual
