Лицевая обложка
Cambridge University Press, 9 янв. 2003 г. - Всего страниц: 740
Volume V covers the three years from March 1924 to March 1927. It comprises over 890 letters, of which about 350 are previously unpublished, and the others are printed in full for the first time. As in earlier volumes of this model edition of Lawrence's correspondence, texts have been established from the originals and are fully annotated to identify persons and illuminate allusions. Also included are a biographical introduction, two maps of Oaxaca (Mexico), illustrations, chronology and an index. In 1924 Lawrence is in the United States to check on the failing business of his American publisher and to rewrite his Mexican novel The Plumed Serpent. While in Mexico, the author falls dangerously ill and recovers at Kiowa. In the Autumn of 1925, he and Frieda visit family in England and Germany. They finally settle in Italy where, except for his final visit to the Midlands, they will remain.

Об авторе (2003)

D(avid) H(erbert) Lawrence was born on September 11, 1885. His father was a coal miner and Lawrence grew up in a mining town in England. He always hated the mines, however, and frequently used them in his writing to represent both darkness and industrialism, which he despised because he felt it was scarring the English countryside. Lawrence attended high school and college in Nottingham and, after graduation, became a school teacher in Croyden in 1908. Although his first two novels had been unsuccessful, he turned to writing full time when a serious illness forced him to stop teaching. Lawrence spent much of his adult life abroad in Europe, particularly Italy, where he wrote some of his most significant and most controversial novels, including Sons and Lovers and Lady Chatterly's Lover. Lawrence and his wife, Frieda, who had left her first husband and her children to live with him, spent several years touring Europe and also lived in New Mexico for a time. Lawrence had been a frail child, and he suffered much of his life from tuberculosis. Eventually, he retired to a sanitorium in Nice, France. He died in France in 1930, at age 44. In his relatively short life, he produced more than 50 volumes of short stories, poems, plays, essays, travel journals, and letters, in addition to the novels for which he is best known.
