D. H. Lawrence

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.

Apocalypse

A radical criticism of our civilization and statement of unwavering belief in man’s power to create "a new heaven and a new earth," Apocalypse is D. H. Lawrence’s last book, written while he was dying. His final attempt to explain his vision of man, God, and the universe, his writings range over religion, art, psychology, and politics.

ABOUT THE SERIES
"The Cambridge edition… has restored—perhaps created—texts which are authoritative enough to stand for another fifty years." (Literary Review)

D. H. Lawrence is one of the great writers of the twentieth century—yet the texts of his writings, whether published during his lifetime or since, are textually corrupt. He was forced to accept the often-stringent house-styling of his printers, not to mention intrusive editing due to his publishers’ timidity.

A team of scholars at Cambridge University Press has worked for more than thirty years to restore the definitive texts of D. H. Lawrence. The Cambridge Edition provides texts of all of his works, which are as close as can now be determined to those he would have wished to see printed.

The texts are established through rigorous collation of all extant materials, from draft manuscripts to first book publication, identifying errors made by copyists, typists and printers; house-styling by printers; and censorship and bowdlerization by publishers.

The Cambridge Editions were published between 1979 and 2011. This is the first time they have been available in eBook form.

The Fox, The Captain's Doll, The Ladybird

Written between November 1920 and December 1921, these novellas were enthusiastically received by D. H. Lawrence’s readers. Including the the original ending of The Fox, the Cambridge edition adds new depth to the legacy of Lawrence’s story of a disruptive fox in a troublesome time.

A visit to Austria in 1920 inspired the characters and settings of The Captain’s Doll, diving into a storied relationship between a Scottish soldier and a German countess in occupied Germany.

Also featuring the original unedited edition of The Ladybird, a heartbreaking tale of a wounded soldier and the English nurse who tended his wounds, this is a complete collection of three of Lawrence’s brilliantly crafted war stories about human emotions and relationships.

Women in Love

The Brangwen sisters, Gudrun and Ursula live in The Midlands of England in the 1910s. After befriending two local men, Rupert and Gerald, the lives of the foursome become entangled as they question society, politics, and the relationships between men and women in the pre-War era.

A sequel to The Rainbow, Women in Love—"the beginning of a new world," as Lawrence called it—suffered some of the most spectacular damage ever inflicted upon one of his books in the course of its revision, transcription, and publication. Until now, no text of Women in Love has ever been published which is faithful to all of Lawrence’s revisions, allowing its readers to read and understand the novelist’s work as he himself created it.
