"Terra Incognita": D. H. Lawrence at the Frontiers, edited by Virginia Crosswhite Hyde and Eari G. Ingersoll, is a collection of nine essays by scholars from five countries. They show ways in which Lawrence explored not only remote regions of the earth but also consciousness and human relations. The book also considers implications of terms like "frontier," "boundary," and "place." It gives readings that are the first to utilize new texts and research in the final prose volumes of the Cambridge Lawrence Edition. This includes all the essays Lawrence wrote in America about Southwestern and Mexican Indians (Mornings in Mexico and Other Essays, 2009). Writers are Michael Hollington, Judith Ruderman, Edina Pereira Crunfli, Tina Ferris, Virginia Crosswhite Hyde, Jack Stewart, Keith Cushman, Julianne New-mark, and Paul Poplawski. In addition to the essays, the book contains eight pages of color illustrations. It will interest both general readers and scholars of Lawrence and of twentieth-century literature.

Lawrence wrote of "terra incognita," referring above all to genuine "face-to-face" contacts with our surroundings and with other people, beyond confining walls of the status quo with its counterfeit encounters. These contacts are his ultimate frontiers where, in particular, he sought new understanding of class, race, and relationship. The 1920s emerge in these essays as a great watershed in his life and work, when he traveled the earth and settled for a time in America, addressed issues of colonialism and multiculturalism, wrote alongside activist John Collier for Pueblo property rights, and not only published some of his finest fiction and poetry but also helped to launch scholarly interest in his works.

About the Author:

(2001) and more than a dozen essays on Lawrence.

Review:

Satisfying and cohesive, the essays in this volume focus on metaphorical and literal ideas of frontiers (as distinguished from borders, which many of the contributors consider limiting and disabling rather than flexible and generative). Taken together, the essays suggest that, for Lawrence, every literal frontier experience was a metaphorical one that enabled fruitful if also fraught encounters with otherness. Most essays focus on Lawrence's time in the American Southwest and Mexico in 1922-25. Among the topics are Lawrence's (reluctant) involvement in a campaign to help the Pueblo people in their struggle for land and water rights; his relationship to artists like Dorothy Brett and Georgia O'Keefe, who painted the southwestern landscape; his changing attitudes to the ceremonial dances of the Pueblo people; and his (well-intentioned but perhaps failed) reversal of the Christian conversion enterprise in The Plumed Serpent. This book provides a valuable reexamination of a misunderstood period in Lawrence's life. Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty. (D. Stuber, Hendrix College CHOICE, April 2011)
