A collection of excerpted aphoristic statements from the letters of D.H. Lawrence, compiled by the poet and editor Marguerite Harris (1901-1978). Alternatively earnest, honest, scathing, philosophical, and banal fragments by the great English modernist, who says here of himself "I write everything vague--plenty of fire underneath, but, like bulbs in the ground, only shadowy flowers that must be beaten and sustained, for another spring."
