University Press of Florida to release paperback and digital editions of The American Lawrence (2015) by Prof Lee Jenkins
The University Press of Florida will release paperback and digital editions of The American Lawrence (2015) by Prof Lee Jenkins in autumn 2020
Originally published in 2015, The American Lawrence, explores DH Lawrence's "savage pilgrimage" in Mexico and New Mexico.
By examining Lawrence's experiences in the Americas, including his fascination with indigenous cultures, Jenkins illustrates how the modernist writer helped shape both American literary criticism and the American literary canon. Reassessing Lawrence's relationship to American modernism and his literary contemporaries in the New World, Jenkins portrays Lawrence as a transatlantic writer whose significant body of work embraces and adapts both English and American traditions and innovations.
