About this book
This book provides a description and analysis of the most characteristic linguistic features of Lawrence's fictional prose. Use of language is placed in a context that includes the attitudes and modes of expression of the literature of Modernism, the shaping influence of Lawrence's own background, his attitude towards the novel and its purpose and potential as a form, and, above all, the artistic integrity of each novel or story. One chapter is devoted to the language of Lawrence's poetry.
