The love ethic of D.H. Lawrence by Mark Spilka( Book )

48 editions published between 1953 and 1978 in 3 languages and held by 1,180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The years that have passed since D.H. Lawrence's death have increasingly revealed his importance as both artist and prophet. Unfortunately, as Mark Spilka points out, critics have assumed that these aspects of Lawrence's work are easily separated according to the critic's whims. But it is the brilliantly demonstrated contention of The Love Ethic of D.H. Lawrence that aesthetics and prophecy were both, with Lawrence, means to a greater unity of form and message--that Lawrence's ultimate aim was to 'inform and lead into new places the flow of our sympathetic consciousness'."--Back cover

Renewing the normative D.H. Lawrence : a personal progress by Mark Spilka( Book )

5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Along with such critics as F.R. Leavis and Harry T. Moore, Mark Spilka helped establish the "normative" D.H. Lawrence of the 1950s, a prophetic artist who tests, explores, and frequently affirms new life-possibilities for love, friendship, and marriage in his finest fiction. Since that time, Spilka has been defending the "normative" Lawrence from changing critical perspectives which have tended to deny or diminish that view of his importance. Renewing the Normative D.H. Lawrence consists of nine such reconsiderations, written between 1967 and 1990, which directly confront newly controversial issues like Lawrence's anal obsessions, his struggles with tenderness, his hostility toward willful women, his late reaction to his own impotence, his apparent grudge against the clitoris, and his dubious status as an abusive husband - issues that reflect the mounting pressures of the last three decades against any kind of normative claims for Lawrence. These essays are designed, however, to keep those claims alive and well in perilously changing times. In the process, moreover, they help to redefine the prophetic Lawrence's contributions to counterculture movements of the 1960s and to the sexual, feminist, and gay revolutions of recent decades. Throughout the text Spilka deals with Lawrence's struggle toward that creaturely tenderness he was finally able to define. Spilka also relates his own post-New Critical concern with the author's life as an index to his works and with the problematics of biography and culture that the study of such a self-styled prophetic writer entails. In the concluding essays of this collection, Spilka takes up the theme of domestic violence that became the salient form of sexual politics in much of Lawrence's fiction. Spilka's own personal attention to the conception, development, and critical importance of each of the book's nine essays makes Renewing the Normative D.H. Lawrence a welcome addition to Lawrence studies

Eight lessons in love : a domestic violence reader by Mark Spilka( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spilka shows how all these writers are keenly aware of domestic abuse as it affects themselves and their characters, and how they struggle honestly to cope with the issues of violence and sometimes overcome or assuage them in later fictions. The stakes in domestic violence are extraordinarily high: life or death. What better place to gain new awareness of their implications than in the depths of Eight Lessons In Love, where we can investigate the specific and dramatic ramifications of each story
