Read full description of the books:
This important study from the prizewinning novelist and critic Amit Chaudhuri explores D. H. Lawrence's position as a "foreigner" in the English canon. Focussing on the poetry, Chaudhuri examines how Lawrence's works, and Lawrence himself, have been read, and misread, in terms of their "difference." This is the first time that Lawrence's poetry has been discussed in the light of post-colonial and post-structuralist theory; it is also the first time a leading post-colonial writer of his generation has taken as his subject a major canonical English writer, and, through him, remapped the English canon as a site of "difference."
