Studies in classic American literature by D. H Lawrence ( Book )
95 editions published between 1923 and 2008 in 7 languages and held by 2,469 libraries worldwide
In this work, "D.H. Lawrence set down his interpretation of what were for him the significant books....His opinions on these and other works are often startling, sometimes extreme, never dull; they reflect the same moral passion and visionary grasp of essentials found in his novels. Since 1923...the 'thin little volumes' of Hawthorne, Poe, Melville, and Whitman, which D.H. Lawrence in effect rediscovered, have come into their own. A new generation of critics echoes Lawrence's judgments of these works, and the book he wrote about them...has become itself a classic."

The white peacock by D. H Lawrence ( Book )
150 editions published between 1911 and 2010 in 10 languages and held by 2,015 libraries worldwide
Lawrence's first novel The White Peacock was begun in 1906, rewritten three times, and published in 1911. The Cambridge edition uses the final manuscript as base-text, and faithfully recovers Lawrence's words and punctuation from the layers of publishers' house-styling and their errors; original passages, changed for censorship reasons, are reinstated. Andrew Robertson's introduction sets out the history of Lawrence's writing and revision, and the generally favourable reception by friends and reviewers. Lawrence incorporated much of his own experience and reading on to the novel which is set just north-east of Eastwood, and modelled characters on his friends and family. The notes identify real-life places and people, explain dialect forms, literary allusions, and historical references, and include sensitive passages deleted before publication. The textual apparatus records all the variant readings and the appendix prints the two surviving fragments from the earliest manuscripts of the novel, then entitled 'Laetitia'. --Publisher.

St. Mawr, and The man who died by D. H Lawrence ( Book )
115 editions published between 1914 and 2007 in 14 languages and held by 1,566 libraries worldwide
In his last novel, published less than a year before his death, D. H. Lawrence takes up the theme of Christ's resurrection and his final days on earth. Lawrence recounts Christ's agonizing journey from death back to life with alarming realism: his initial painful awakening, the utter disillusionment of living beyond his brutal death, his bewildering encounters with strangers and friends, and finally, his redemptive sexual relationship with the priestess of the pagan goddess Isis. The story expands from its Christian roots to embrace Lawrence's abiding faith in the life-force apparent in every aspect of the natural world. The combination of a pure idealism with a pure physicality enriches these characters both as human beings and as symbols of beliefs too often held in opposition. The language of this book is indulgent for Lawrence - it contains the sharp focus and lyrical intensity of poetry without losing the subtlety of detail that characterizes his prose. For his final work, it seems that Lawrence has encapsulated a lifetime of extraordinary vision into one profound and exquisite parable.

The trespasser by D. H Lawrence ( Book )
125 editions published between 1912 and 2010 in 6 languages and held by 1,490 libraries worldwide
D. H. Lawrence's second novel The Trespasser is based on the tragic love affair of his friend Helen Corke and her violin teacher. After reading Miss Corke's diary, Lawrence first urged her to write her story and then received her permission to do it himself. Between his rapid composition of the first draft in the spring and summer of 1910 and his final revisions in early 1912, Lawrence's view of Helen Corke, and consequently of her story, changed. The manuscript survives, and this edition presents the text for the first time as Lawrence wrote it, restoring his sentence-structure and punctuation and correcting numerous typesetters' errors. In her substantial introduction Elizabeth Mansfield explores the background of the novel, presents the complications of the publishing history and the novel's reception. A full textual apparatus records the history of the text and the editor annotates topical and other references. --Publisher.
Psychoanalysis and the unconscious, and Fantasia of the unconscious by D. H Lawrence ( Book )
114 editions published between 1921 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 1,349 libraries worldwide
"Written in Lawrence's most productive period, Psychoanalysis and the Unconscious (1921) and Fantasia of the Unconscious (1922) were undertaken initially in response to psychoanalytic criticism of his novel Sons and Lovers. They soon developed more generally to propose an alternative to what Lawrence perceived as the Freudian psychoanalytic theory of the unconscious and the incest motive. In doing so the essays also develop his ideas about the upbringing and education of children, about marriage, and about social and even political action. They were written with an American audience in mind, as Lawrence believed that his future as a writer lay there rather than in post-war Europe. He himself described them as 'this pseudo-philosophy of mine which was deduced from the novels and poems, not the reverse. The absolute need one has for some sort of satisfactory mental attitude towards oneself and things in general makes one try to abstract some definite conclusions from one's experiences as a writer and as a man.' These conclusions form an illuminating guide to his works and therein lies their peculiar value." "This edition of Fantasia of the Unconscious, based on Lawrence's final corrected typescript, removes errors and misprints of previous editions and, more importantly, restores passages which his first publisher removed."--BOOK JACKET.
