CHAPTER ONE: Introduction: Lawrence At "The Bloody Crossroads"

Scherr, Barry J.

Book Chapter
The chapter explores the left wing academia's discrimination against English author D. H. Lawrence. With the indubitable triumph of left-wing politics over literature at the academy in the 1990s Lawrence's reputation appears to be in permanent eclipse. With excellence being replaced by diversity in academia, Lawrence as heterosexual white male does not stand a chance, as is illustrated in the data presented in the 1996 MLA International Bibliography which shows racial and gender preferences at work against Lawrence.
