Admission free, advance booking required
DH Lawrence is an iconic figure in English literature, but also one of the most controversial. The exhibition 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.
Join us for a guided walk through of the exhibition and learn about the stories behind the items on display.
