ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the book "D.H. Lawrence: Novelist," by F.R. Leavis who has kept plumping for him while revaluating and scrutinizing other authors and upsetting most of the norms and dons of English studies. It states that no reader of Lawrence is going to agree in every detail with Leavis and with a handful of exceptions, Lawrence has been extremely unfortunate in his commentators. The positive qualities of the book are the generous quotations from Lawrence, and the profound and vital comments on them.
