Summary

This is an autobiographical novel - more or less a sequel to Sons and Lovers. The first part appeared as a short story in 1934; the second, larger part was never published. Mr Noon was first published in its entirety in 1984, and was widely hailed as a major literary event.

Mr Noon Summary

Mr Noon by D. H. Lawrence

Mr Noon is a sardonic tale about the amorous adventures of Gilbert Noon, a young schoolmaster in Lawrence's home county of Nottinghamshire who gets entangled with a girl, loses his job, and decides to leave the country to escape the narrow provincial middle-class morality. It was first known as a long story posthumously published in A Modern Lover (1934) and collected in the volume called Phoenix II (1968). Lawrence in fact wrote a long continuation of the novel, but the manuscript disappeared for many years. The Cambridge edition brought the two parts together for the first time. It is like a sequel to Sons and Lovers, but much more straightforwardly autobiographical. The publication of the complete work added a new work of major importance to the canon of a great writer, and was widely hailed as a major literary event.
