D.H. Lawrence: The Middle Years

D.H. Lawrence was precisely embroiled in disputes with censors. Both in his lifetime and today, he has been regarded as a celebration of sensuality. In large measure he was precisely that, but he also was much more. His sensuality had a religious cast; his novels were essentially explorations, as was his life. Mark Kinkead-Weekes explains the relations of his life and his ideas to the art of D.H. Lawrence.

George Seay interviews Mark Kinkead-Weekes, Professor Emeritus of English Literature, University of Kent at Canterbury, United Kingdom.
