The Life of an Outsider

D. H. Lawrence: The Life of an Outsider is an illuminating and clear-sighted portrait of one of the twentieth century's most brilliant, radical and misunderstood writers.

John Worthen follows Lawrence's from his awkward and intense youth in Nottinghamshire, through his turbulent relationship with Frieda and the years of exile abroad to his premature death at the age of 44. His account is an intimate and absolutely compelling reappraisal of a man who believed himself to be an outsider, in angry revolt against his class, culture and country, and who was engaged in a furious commitment to his writing and a passionate struggle to live according to his beliefs.

From Publishers Weekly

01 July 1991 – David Herbert Lawrence (1885-1930), with his fiery life and staggering literary output, continues a step ahead of his biographers. This hefty volume is first in a three-volume study, each by a different author--Mark Kinkead-Weekes and David Ellis will write the last two, slated to appear in 1992 and 1994, respectively. Here Worthen incorporates a mass of newly published Lawrenciana, chiefly letters, and thus, to a degree, renders all the existing biographies out of date. Worthen provides a wealth of information on Lawrence's family background, his coming-of-age in a Midlands mining community, tortuous early relations with women, first ventures into the working world and explosive burst of self-education. The book ends with his liberating elopement with Frieda Weekley and the publication of his autobiographical masterpiece, Sons and Lovers. Worthen ( D. H. Lawrence and the Idea of the Novel ) sets the record straight in a thousand little ways, and there emerges a complex genius, ruthless, sensitive and fully alive. Photos.
