'Birds, Beasts and Flowers' is one of the greatest books by an English poet in the twentieth century. Of Melville's achievement in Moby Dick, Lawrence says, when he 'gives us his sheer apprehension of the world, then he is wonderful, his book commands a stillness in the soul, an awe'. This is what Lawrence himself achieves in this volume.

Birds, Beasts and Flowers Summary

Birds, Beasts and Flowers by D. H. Lawrence

Birds, Beasts and Flowers (1923) was the volume that Lawrence himself described as his best collection of poetry. Composed in various locations during his exile-in Italy, France, Germany and the United States-this long collection occupies a crucial place in the development of his poetry and is that most unusual of creations: a masterpiece of modernist nature writing. This version offers the full text of the first British edition (which included the poems from the short 'Tortoises' volume, unlike the US edition).

About D. H. Lawrence

D.H. Lawrence was born in Eastwood, Nottingham in 1895, to a father who was a miner and a mother who was a home-based lace-worker. After beginnings as a teacher, Lawrence's work was taken up by Ford Madox Ford and others, and he made a significant mark as a novelist and as a writer of short stories. Often steeped in controversy because of his frank treatment of sexuality, but also because of his elopement with another man's wife-a German national-just before World War 1, Lawrence eventually was to spend many years in voluntary exile in continental Europe, and then in Mexico and the U.S.A. Famous in the wider world for novels such as Sons and Lovers, Women in Love, and the scandal-struck Lady Chatterley's Lover, he wrote over 800 poems, and several collections of short stories and volumes of essays. He was also an accomplished painter. Lawrence died of tuberculosis in Vence, in the south of France, in 1930.
