The Portable D H Lawrence Author:Diana Trilling (Editor), D. H. Lawrence A revealing cross section from the impassioned writings of a towering literary genius. — Eight novellettes and stories plus The Rainbow and Women in Love and poetry, travel, letters and esays. — There have been few writers in any era, and certainly none in ours who have combined as D. H. Lawrence did the gifts of the creative heart and the penetra... more »tions of the critical intellect. At his death in 1930, Lawrence left behind him close to fifty volumes of novels, long and short stories, plays, poems, essays, and travel journals, not to mention an extensive personal correspondence and a mass of material that has been published posthumously.
From this wealth of writing Diana Trilling has chosen a comprehensive selection which provocatively exemplifies Lawrence's scorn of modern civilization, his insistent sexuality, and his assertion of self and of "blood-consciousness" as opposed to "mental-consciousness."
Diana Trilling, the editor, has contributed an illuminating critical and biographical introduction.« less
