H. Lawrence's development as a writer. His early tales often draw on personal experiences, as in 'Odour of Chrysanthemums', a work he described as 'full of my childhood's atmosphere', while the horror of the First World War haunts 'England, My England'. Later stories, such as 'Things', powerfully express his evolving ideas about the essential duality of our lives. With complex, intelligent and sensitive characters, these stories illuminate real life and emotions and, above all, illustrate Lawrence's passionate belief about the destructive forces in modern society and their effect on love between men and women. In her introduction Louise Welsh discusses Lawrence's personal experiences and how they relate to his short stories. This edition also includes explanatory notes by Sue Wilson, a chronology of Lawrence's life and work and suggestions for further reading. 9780141441658
