Heartlands: A Guide to D.H. Lawrence's Midlands Roots by Stephen Bailey & Chris Nottingham
[paperback]
£9.75

isbn 9781783060573  Matador, 2013

Lawrence's best work is located in the countryside of his youth, in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire and an understanding of this district can help readers understand and enjoy Lawrence's work more fully so this book aims to guide the reader around Lawrence's 'Heartlands'.

It also provides a biography of Lawrence's early life, and examines the complex cultural forces that inspired him as a young man, revealing the profound influences of home, school and chapel in Eastwood and district that led to such masterpieces as The Rainbow and Women in Love. The role of walking is also explored, and five walks which are described in Sons and Lovers are followed in the modern context, illustrating some of the changes that have affected the district in the past century.  180pp
