Since his death in 1930 at the age of 44, D H Lawrence has become a legend as both a writer and a man. In The Life of D H Lawrence, Keith Sagar has written an authentic, vivid biography, drawing on the five thousand five hundred Lawrence letters now available, and the many accounts of him by his relatives, friends and contemporaries. He tells the story directly and dramatically, revealing the dynamics of Lawrence's worldwide quest (both as traveler and as 'thought-adventurer') for a way of life he could recognize as both fully human and deeply religious. The book is illustrated throughout with 150 pictures, many in color, including those of his friends and associates, places he lived in and wrote about, and his paintings. In The Life of D H Lawrence, Keith Sagar has written not only about Lawrence the creator of some of the finest works in every genre of modern literature, but also the creator of 'that piece of supreme art, a man's life'.
