Exploring draft manuscripts, alternative texts and publishers' typescripts, D.H. Lawrence and Genetic Criticism reveals new insights into the writing practices of one of the most important writers of the 20th-century. Focusing on the most productive years of Lawrence's writing life between 1909 and 1926 - a time that saw the writing of major novels such as Women in Love and the controversial The Plumed Serpent as well as his first major short story collection - this book is the first to apply analytical methods from the field of genetic criticism to the archives of this canonical modernist author. By charting Lawrence's writing process the book also highlights how the very distinction between 'process' and 'product' became a central theme in his work.
