MEDIA REVIEWS
'James Boulton has chosen 330 letters from the massive eight-volume Cambridge edition of well over 5,000, making this substantial selection something like a new addition to the Lawrence canon, a book to have on the shelf alongside The Rainbow and Women in Love.' Independent on Sunday
'We now have the start of an edition in whose scrupulousness there is good reason to place every confidence: the fundamental work will never have to be done again ... Cambridge University Press has cooperated nobly: the book is nice to hold, the pages are very well set out and printed and altogether a pleasure to read. In short a job eminently worth doing has been eminently well done.' English
'This invigorating collection ... is ... a monument to scholarship for which we should be grateful.' D. H. Lawrence Review
'The Selected Letters succeeds admirably in representing Lawrence's quirky brilliance, his always surprising common sense, and above all else the sheer beauty of his writing.' English Literature in Transition, 1880-1920
"The greatest virtue of this volume is that it does present readers with an entertaining overview of the flexibility of Lawrence's talent and his mind. The Selected Letters succeeds in representing Lawrence's quirky brilliance, his always surprising common sense, and above all else the sheer beauty of his writing." Carol Siegel, English Literature in Transition 1880-1920
"Lawrence is his letters, the most vivid and engaging self-portrait left by any English writer since Keats. Unlike Keats, Lawrence traveled the world knowing that his life would be short, and he captured the spirit of each place in unforgettable phrases." The Week, Brenda Maddox
