New York. 1926. Knopf. 1st American Edition. Very Good. No Dustjacket. 445 pages. hardcover. keywords: Literature England. inventory # 5182. FROM THE PUBLISHER - The story of a European woman's self-annihilating plunge into the intrigues, passions, and pagan rituals of Mexico. Lawrence's mesmerizing and unsettling 1926 novel is his great work of the political imagination. In this novel, symptomatic of Lawrence's later work, Kate Leslie, an Irish widow visiting Mexico, finds herself equally repelled and fascinated by what she sees as the primitive cruelty of the country. As she becomes involved with Don Ramon and General Cipriano, her perceptions change. Caught up in the plans of these two men to revive the old Aztec religion and political order, she submits to the 'blood-consciousness' and phallic power that they represent. ‘All of Mexico is here, evoked clearly with the fervor of things remembered out of impressions that filled the mind to bursting. ’ - Katherine Anne Porter.
