    Reviews & endorsements

    "Reading Lawrence's poetry will take you right into his heart and soul, and you will never think the same way about his novels or indeed about the man who wrote so passionately about nature and the whole human experience."
    The Washington Post

    "Christopher Pollnitz has done an absolutely remarkable job with these volumes and his … essay dealing with the composition, publication and reception of the poems is a model of clarity and insight: he not only brings the bibliographical details of the poems to light but engages with the poetry in such an infectious manner that one wants to go back to the individual poems time and time again."
    Ian Brinton, Tears in the Fence

    "Impeccable volumes."
    Barry Hill, The Australian

    "A triumph. Readers of Lawrence who are curious, as we should be, about how these poems came into being - their provenance and history, how each one is related to Lawrence’s circumstances at the moment of his writing and where it stands in the complex development of his thought - have every reason to be grateful, both to Christopher Pollnitz, the editor, and to the Press."
    David Malouf, Sydney Review of Books

    "These two volumes [are] a wonder of persistent editorial effort and a brave struggle with textual complexity."
    Dieter Mehl, Editionen in der Kritik
