This important book explores representative works of literature as expressions of British culture's responses to science and technology. Although its center is the major novels of D.H. Lawrence, this study begins with the writings of Lawrence's forerunners and contemporaries - Hardy, Conrad, Shaw, Forster, Woolf - and examines the work of his literary heirs - Huxley, Orwell, Burgess, Golding - as well as other interpreters of Lawrence's legacy - Sillitoe, Shaffer, Lodge. In addition to the expected hostility, especially toward technology, these carefully selected works frequently reveal ambivalent and occasionally even positive responses to the «other» culture of science and technology in the past 100 years.

About the Author:

The Author: Earl G. Ingersoll is Professor of English and Honors Director at the State University of New York College at Brockport, where he has taught since 1964. In addition to numerous articles in professional journals, he is a co-editor of The Post-Confessionals: Conversations with American Poets of the Eighties and the editor of Margaret Atwood: Conversations and Conversations with May Sarton.

Review:

«Earl Ingersoll offers an impressively comprehensive treatment of one of the crucial issues of our time. Ingersoll ranges widely, focusing on individual texts from 'The Mayor of Casterbridge' and 'The Secret Agent' all the way to Sillitoe's 'Saturday Night and Sunday Morning' and David Lodge's recent 'Nice Work'. D.H. Lawrence is the centerpiece of Ingersoll's study, as he should be. In detailed readings of the major novels, Ingersoll demonstrates that Lawrence's attitudes toward science and technology are rather more complex than we usually assume. Ingersoll is also to be commended for the easy familiarity with the 'nouvelle critique' he brings to his traditional topic. This is a thoughtful, useful work of literary criticism.» (Keith Cushman, University of North Carolina, Greensboro)
