DH Lawrence is an iconic figure in English literature, but also one of the most controversial. He struggled with publishers throughout his career to express himself in the form he wanted. Drawing on a range of items including manuscripts and typescripts, and rare first editions, this exhibition traces the ways in which his writing was amended and censored, and the innovative approaches to publishing he developed in response to censorship. It explores how his letters and works have been edited for the edition published by Cambridge University Press between 1979 and 2018, and how his novels, short stories and plays have been presented and adapted to appeal to succeeding generations of readers.
