Short biography
Harry T. Moore, an educator, critic and author, is best remembered for his studies of the life and works of D.H. Lawrence.

The son of an army Lieutenant Colonel, Moore began his education at the University of Chicago in 1934. After serving in the US military and rising to the ranks of Lieutenant Colonel, he began his impressive academic career. He was made Professor of English at the Southern Illinois University in 1957 and wrote and edited many notable works of literary criticism during his career.Although Moore is best known for his work on Lawrence, he also wrote and edited books on the writings of John Steinbeck, E.M. Forster, Henry James, as well as several collections of essays on twentieth-century literature. Moore’s biography of Lawrence, The Intelligent Heart, later revised and published as The Priest of Love in 1974 became the basis for a film starring Ian McKellen and Janet Suzman in 1981. His other works on Lawrence include The Life and Works of D.H. Lawrence, 1951 and D.H. Lawrence and his World 1966.

Moore became a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, as well as the President of the College English Association. He also won the Guggenheim Fellowships in 1958 and 1960.
