Description of this Book

Volume I of the Letters, edited by James T. Boulton, gives the first 580 letters in the series, covering the period September 1901 to May 1913. This is the time of Lawrence's youth in Eastwood, his first year out of England - in Italy with Frieda - to the publication of Sons and Lovers. There are letters to his early loves, Jessie Chambers, Louie Burrows and Helen Corke. He writes The White Peacock, The Trespasser, Sons and Lovers, the early stories and poems. He is welcomed into the literary world by editors such as Ford and Garnett; he meets Pound and other writers; he reads widely. His mother dies; he grows away from the younger women; he meets Frieda and elopes with her. Professor Boulton's discreet annotation conceals an enormous labour of patient detection. There are over thirty photographs of his friends and correspondents and a newly discovered portrait miniature of Lawrence.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review '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.'
