In this comprehensive study of D. H. Lawrence's major works, originally published in paperback in 1975, Keith Sagar traces the development of Lawrence's vision and the 'appropriate form' which that vision found at different periods of his life. Dr Sagar sees Lawrence's creative life as falling into four distinct phases: a period of gradual discovery and growth; a period of mature achievement; a phase of moral and artistic uncertainty, even desperation; and a regeneration to a new art and vision. The elaboration and testing of this division, based on close and penetrating analyses of the chosen works, produced what was perhaps the most coherent account of Lawrence's art yet written. Each chapter begins with a full chronology, dating the works of the years in question in order of composition, and there is an extensive bibliography.
