This volume collects together the introductions and reviews for which D. H. 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 1921–2, 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 All the texts, including a number previously unpublished in Britain, have been edited and are supplied with extensive explanatory notes.

• The first ever complete collection of the introductions and reviews of one of the most significant writers of the twentieth century • The first uncensored printing in Britain of a number of highly significant pieces of Lawrence's writing, and of the magisterial Memoir of Maurice Magnus • All texts freshly edited, supplied with extensive explanatory notes, and with a comprehensive introduction about Lawrence's life and its relationship to this work

Reviews

'… stands as a scholarly and handsome companion to Cambridge's Late Essays and Articles …' The Use of English

'Their editorial efforts also are most impressive … provides a fascinating outline of Lawrence's career as editor, translator and reviewer. Their commentary, in particular the impressively full explanatory notes, offer a most generous wealth of miscellaneous information …' Dieter Mehl, Universität Bonn
