D.H. Lawrence Today

Literature, Culture, Politics


Barry J. Scherr

D. H. Lawrence Today is a rare and extraordinary blend of intellectual-political history, psycho-literary biography, and literary criticism not seen in Lawrence studies since the heyday of F. R. Leavis. Barry J. Scherr provides a vigorous defense of Lawrence against his powerful enemies in the literary-cultural-political-academic world – a world dominated today by the political correctness of the elite extreme left-wing intelligentsia. Dr. Scherr employs a daring, original, intense strategy to deal with Lawrence’s enemies, involving unique, intricate, complex explication de texte as well as incisive polemic. Unconventional and seminal, D. H. Lawrence Today is the most stimulating, provocative, courageous book on Lawrence to appear in many years.
