D H Lawrence

"Flame Into Being" was written on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of D. H. Lawrence's birth in 1885. Burgess traces Lawrence's life and offers critical commentary on all the major and most of the minor writings. Though he initially planned to discuss only a few of Lawrence's books, he found "that it was not possible to separate Lawrence's work from his life." Burgess writes vigorously, concisely, and sometimes racily.

Devotees of D.H. Lawrence, who wish that "Lady Chatterley's Lover" was not his most famous book, have plunged his hometown into a three-week celebration of the centenary of his Sept. 11 birth. It is not universally popular. Fifty-five years after he died, 25 years after British courts finally permitted "Lady Chatterley's Lover" to be published with all the words he wrote, Lawrence is regarded as a modern master by the literary world.

The novelist D.H. Lawrence, who shocked his generation by writing about sex, has won a place in Poet's Corner in London's Westminster Abbey. The D.H. Lawrence Society in Nottingham, the town in central England near which the writer was born 100 years ago, said that after three years of lobbying it had been given permission to put up a memorial plaque in the abbey.
