with Lawrence: Texts, Places, Contexts
Working with Lawrence: Texts, Places, Contexts draws together a representative selection of essays by Peter Preston, Honorary Lecturer in the School of English Studies at the University of Nottingham and founder of its D. H. Lawrence Research Centre. The essays adopt a range of approaches, drawing closely on textual, biographical and bibliographical sources whilst engaging with genetic and comparative criticism, and reception studies. They are distinguished by their author's wide-ranging and comprehensive understanding of Lawrence's aesthetic, political and cultural positioning, and by his characteristically meticulous attention to textual detail and sensitivity to the ambition and effects of Lawrence's writings.
The late Peter Preston retired in 2005 as Director of the Centre for Continuing Education at the University of Nottingham, where he was Special Lecturer in English Studies and Academic Consultant to the D. H. Lawrence Research Centre, which he founded in 1991. His D. H. Lawrence Chronology was published in 1994, he wrote the introduction for the Penguin edition of Mr Noon, and has edited three Lawrence texts for Italian publishers. His essays on Lawrence were published in many countries. He also published essays on or critical editions of Arnold Bennett, Charles Dickens, Elizabeth Gaskell, Katherine Mansfield, William Morris, Graham Swift, Ian McEwan, Zadie Smith and Monica Ali, and edited or co-edited several volumes of critical essays. At the time of his death in October 2011 he was writing a book on Lawrence's reception in British culture since 1930.
