A D. H. Lawrence Album

Nathaniel Harris, Author, George Hardy, Author Franklin Watts $15.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-531-15013-9
Two dedicated Lawrentians present 129 unique photographs of the writer's parents, sisters, brothers, friends and neighbors, and of streets, houses, schools, churches, collieries and countryside in and around Eastwood, in Nottinghamshire, where Lawrence was born and lived as a boy and young man. Picture captions and quotations from Lawrence's writings link the photos with passages from his books and make clear that he described the places and people he knew and that his depictions of buildings, fields and woods are closely based on the actual scenes and experiences of his early life. Readers familiar with Lawrence's works will be intrigued to see the originals of characters and places that figure in Aaron's Rod, The White Peacock, Sons and Lovers, Women in Love and Lady Chatterley's Lover.
