This collection of writings by the author of Sons and Lovers presents his thoughts on religion, art, psychology and politics in a newly restored text.
Though D. H. Lawrence was one of the great writers of the twentieth century, his works were severely corrupted by the stringent house-styling of printers and the intrusive editing of timid publishers. A team of scholars at Cambridge University Press has worked for more than thirty years to restore the definitive texts of D. H. Lawrence in The Cambridge Editions.
Written while he was dying, Apocalypse is Lawrence's final book. In it, he presents both a radical criticism of our civilization and a statement of unwavering belief in man's power to create "a new heaven and a new earth." This volume also includes Lawrence's review of Book of Revelationby John Orman, and his Introduction to The Dragon of the Apocalypseby Frederick Carter. The Appendixes also present previously unpublished material on Revelation.
Born in England on September 11, 1885, D. H. Lawrence is regarded as one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century. Lawrence published many novels and poetry volumes during his lifetime, including Sons and Lovers and Women in Love, but is best known for his infamous novel Lady Chatterley's Lover. The graphic and highly sexual novel was published in Italy in 1928, but was banned in the United States until 1959, and banned in England until 1960. Garnering fame for his novels and short stories early into his career—especially his collections The Fox, The Captain's Doll, and The Ladybird and The Prussian Officer and Other Stories—Lawrence later received acclaim for his personal letters and poetry, in which he detailed a range of emotions, from exhilaration to depression to prophetic brooding. He died in France in 1930.
