New D.H. Lawrence uses current and emergent approaches in literary studies to explore one of Britain's major modernist writers. The collection features new work by the present generation of Lawrence scholars, who are brought together here for the first time.
Chapters include: Andrew Harrison on the marketing of Sons and Lovers; Howard J. Booth on The Rainbow, Marxist criticism and colonialism; Holly A. Laird on ethics and suicide in Women in Love; Hugh Stevens on psychoanalysis and war in Women in Love; Jeff Wallace on Lawrence, Deleuze and abstraction; Stefania Michelucci on myth and war in 'The Ladybird'; Bethan Jones on gender and comedy in the late short fiction; Fiona Becket on green cultural critique, Apocalypse and Birds, Beasts and Flowers; and Sean Matthews on class, Leavis and the trial of Lady Chatterley.
New D.H. Lawrence will be of interest to all concerned with contemporary writing on Lawrence, modernism and English radical cultures.
