 ‘On a spring day in 1912, the lonely, ailing, and directionless D. H. Lawrence was invited to lunch at the Nottingham home of Professor Ernest Weekley. There Lawrence met the Baroness Frieda von Richthofen Weekley, the professor’s wife. A beautiful, erotically gifted woman whose Continental affairs had come to grief, she was in search of a new, interesting, and preferably artistic lover. Lawrence, Brenda Maddox writes in her brilliant new biography of one of literature’s most controversial and enigmatic men, “never had a chance.”

Maddox presents a richly detailed and startlingly new portrait of D. H. Lawrence: not the bearded prophet with the baleful eye, not the sickly and self absorbed sexual outlaw, but a vulnerable, sensitive Lawrence, a hilarious mimic, a lover of nature, and inspired teacher, a brilliant journalist, an ecological visionary, and above all – as he saw himself – a married man.’


Overall condition for the book & jacket – Very Good++. Does not appear to have been read.
