This is a study of Lawrence's novels linking them on the one hand to his life and increasing sense of cultural isolation, and on the other hand to his interest in the formal possibilities of the novel as a genre and its relationship with other arts within the larger context of modernism. The author includes an examination of Lawrence's two comedies, "The Lost Girl" and "Mr Noon", which are often ignored by other critics. G.M.Hyde has also written "D.H.Lawrence and the Art of Translation" and "Vladimir Nabokov: America's Russian Novelist".

D. H. Lawrence continues to exert a powerful fascination for film-makers, other writers, and a wide and diverse readership. This book is written from a sense of his continuing importance not only within English culture but as a part of European Modernism, with its heightened awareness of the problems of form and language, and its search for cross-cultural and interdisciplinary relationships.From Library Journal:
This volume is brief, brisk, and breezy. It's refreshing to encounter an introductory guide to the novels that refuses to rest content with the critical party line, even if Hyde sometimes shoots a bit disquietingly from the hip. Hyde's perspective is often cultural ("moral and artistic heroism that is hard to recuperate in a consumer culture"), and his study is notable for its use of various theorists. Bakhtin, Genette, Levi-Strauss, Ducrot, and Polanyi are all on hand. Critics of Lawrence--especially American critics of Lawrence--aren't. An intriguing monograph, valuable for its new angle of vision, perhaps best used alongside a more familiar account of the novels.
