Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0192822810, Paperback)

This volume brings together most of Lawrence's major early styles and themes, and they include his first published story, four realistic tales from his years as a teacher in the suburbs of Edwardian London, and three sketches of mining life written during the composition of "Sons and Lovers". Five reviews and travel essays reveal his burgeoning interest in psychology, religion, and art during the pre-War years, a time of dramatic change in European culture. Experimental stories like "The Overtone" and "New Eve and Old Adam" anticipate his greatest literary achievements, "The Rainbow" and "Women in Love". This collection shows Lawrence's development as a master of realistic short fiction, and it traces the growth of his distinctive vision of relations between men and women, of social and economic life, and of human nature in general. It complements his first three great novels and his collection of short stories, "The Prussian Officer".

As well as his novels he was also a masterful poet (he wrote over 800 of them), a travel writer as well as an author of many classic short stories. Here we publish 'A Modern Lover & Other Stories'. Once again Lawrence shows his hand as a brilliant writer. Delving into situations and peeling them back to reveal the inner heart.… (more)
