Book Chapter
The chapter discusses the criticism of literary works by D. H. Lawrence. The vagueness of his works lingers. Contemporary critics seem to interest themselves in this aspect of Lawrence's work. They have constructed him as an inconsistent, ambiguous, and even contradictory writer. Yet what distinguishes contemporary critics from their early counterparts is that recent Lawrence critics seem to have been informed by the very dynamicity of Lawrence, whereas the earlier generation tried to catch Lawrence in one way or another.
