Approaches to Teaching the Works of D. H. Lawrence Cover

“This Approaches volume will prove useful to novice and experienced teachers and to Lawrence newcomers and aficionados alike. It combines the practical and theoretical and covers a wide range of genres and perspectives.”

—Judith Ruderman, author of D. H. Lawrence and the Devouring Mother: The Search for a Patriarchal Ideal of Leadership

“The book is effectively organized, with its long essays balanced by shorter pieces aimed at teaching Lawrence in survey courses, composition courses, and interdisciplinary courses.”

—Charles Rossman, editor, D. H. Lawrence Review

Lawrence’s forceful language, imagery, and rhythms can make readers feel they are being attacked or challenged. These essays describe ways to encourage students to read his works more closely, accurately, and sensitively and to learn how to complicate their reading.
