Aaron's Rod (The Cambridge Edition of the Works of D. H. Lawrence)
Paperback – September 30, 1988
by D. H. Lawrence (Author), Mara Kalnins (Editor)
- NEW BOOK
Written in the years following World War I and set in postwar England and Italy, Aaron's Rod questions many of the accepted social and political institutions of Lawrence's generation, and raises issues as valid for our own time as they were for his. The novel's hero is an Everyman who flees the destruction in England and his failing marriage and who, like Lawrence himself, becomes absorbed in discovering and understanding the nature of the political and religious ideologies that shaped western civilization. Aaron's Rod was completed in 1921 and was censored by both Lawrence's American and English publishers. The Cambridge Edition, based on the only authoritative, surviving typescript, restores these cut passages and eliminates the errors and house-styling of previous editions.The volume contains an introduction that describes the novel's genesis, its transmission, publication history, and reception. Extensive explanatory notes and textual apparatus are also included.

About the Author
D.H. Lawrence had unconventional opinions, especially about sexuality, and at the time of his death he was thought of mainly as a pornographer who had wasted his considerable talents. But E.M. Forster, in an obituary notice, described him as ""the greatest imaginative novelist of our generation."" Later critics concurred, and Lawrence is now remembered as an important modernist intellectual. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
