Life with a Capital L Summary

Life with a Capital L: Essays Chosen and Introduced by Geoff Dyer by D. H. Lawrence

A brilliantly varied new selection of D. H. Lawrence's essays, chosen and introduced by Geoff Dyer

For D. H. Lawrence the novel was the pinnacle, 'the one bright book of life', yet his non-fiction shows him at his most freewheeling and playful. This is a selection of his essays, on subjects including art, morality, obscenity, songbirds, Italy, Thomas Hardy, the death of a porcupine in the Rocky Mountains and the narcissism of photographing ourselves. Arranged chronologically to illuminate the patterns of Lawrence's thought over time, and including many little-known pieces, they reveal a writer of enduring freshness and force.

'The greatest writer of this century, and in many things the greatest writer of all times' Philip Larkin

Life with a Capital L Reviews

In Life with a Capital L, Geoff Dyer has selected some of [Lawrence's] most fascinating and accessible pieces to tempt new readers. Comedy and humour abound, as does a provocative honesty. [...] There are countless examples in this volume of Lawrence at his poetic best. -- Gerri Kimber * Times Literary Supplement *
