Summary, etc.:
"An electrifying, revelatory life of D.H. Lawrence, with a focus on his difficult middle years"-- Provided by publisher
Wilson focuses on Lawrence's decade of superhuman writing and travel between 1915, when The Rainbow was suppressed following an obscenity trial, and 1925, when he was diagnosed with tuberculosis. Taking after Lawrence's own literary model, Dante, Wilson's book pursues Lawrence around the globe and reflects his life of wild allegory. The result is a triptych of lesser-known episodes drawn from lesser-known sources, including tales of Lawrence as told by his friends in letters, memoirs, and diaries. Focusing on three turning points in Lawrence's pilgrimage and three central adversaries-- his wife, Frieda; the writer Maurice Magnus; and his patron, Mabel Dodge Luhan-- Wilson uncovers a lesser-known Lawrence, both as a writer and as a man. -- adapted from jacket
