This volume of the Cambridge Biography begins with Lawrence and Frieda Weekley on the Ostend ferry in 1912, and ends in 1922 on a liner header for Ceylon. Frieda did not start with the intention of leaving her first husband and their children, but these ten years see the forging of a marriage that lasted Lawrence's lifetime. The decade sees the 'un-Englishing' of Lawrence: first through living in Italy and Germany before the Great War, and still more by his fervent opposition to that 'nightmare', and by the adverse reception of his work. In the war years he lost his audience, and then his home when he was expelled from Cornwall on suspicion of being a spy. Poor, and alienated, he became determined to emigrate, and in 1919 he did so - finding a new life and vitality in mainland Italy, Capri and Sicily, before moving out from Europe too, a restless traveller, as well as an adventurer in the mind. Lawrence explored his own experience in his writing with remarkable depth, courage and imagination. This biography tells the writing life too, as never before, tracing the illuminating relations between man and manuscript, without confusing life and art. Drawing on new information from the Cambridge Editions of the Letters and Works, and original research, fresh light is shed on questions of Lawrence's sexuality, health, quarrels and friendships, which have been more often gossiped or theorised about than scrupulously examined
D.H. Lawrence : the life of an outsider by John Worthen( Book )

4 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Quoting extensively from rarely seen letters and drawing on a wealth of original research, John Worthen tells Lawrence's story from the inside for the first time: following him from his awkward and intense youth in a Midlands colliery town; through his troubled and turbulent relationship with Frieda and his equally fiery friendships with figures such as Katherine Mansfield, Ottoline Morrell and Aldous Huxley: through the years of exile abroad in Europe and New Mexico during which he produced his most vital and provocative writing; down to his premature death from tuberculosis in the South of France at the age of 44." "This biography offers a bold reappraisal of the man who, throughout his life, considered himself to be an outsider and whose place within literary and social history has remained challenging and changeable long after his death. What emerges is an intimate and absolutely compelling study of an individual in angry revolt against his class, culture and country, and engaged in a passionate struggle to live in accordance with his beliefs."--Jacket

William Golding; a critical study by Mark Kinkead-Weekes( Book )

6 editions published between 1967 and 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a new and enlarged edition of the standard critical study of the novels of William Golding. In 1967 Mark Kinkead-Weekes and Ian Gregor offered critical readings of the first five novels, from Lord of the Flies to The Spire. In 1984, by which time the authority of their book was established and Golding had won the Nobel Prize for Literature, the original study was enlarged by a long essay taking account of the next three novels, including Darkness Visible and Rites of Passage, which won the Booker Prize. Ian Gregor died in 1995. Mark Kinkead-Weekes has now completed their joint undertaking, revising and expanding the second-edition essay into three separate chapters, and adding new ones on the last four novels, The Paper Men, Close Quarters, Fire Down Below and the unfinished The Double Tongue, which was published posthumously." "As well as providing readings of the individual novels, two chapters reflect on Golding's writings as a whole. The authors knew him personally and discussed many of his books with him. This study stands, therefore, as an unrivalled and contemporary view of the emergence of the works one by one, their relation to one another, and their collective distinction as the astonishing imaginative achievement of a great English writer and moralist."--Jacket
