Papers presented at the Third Chemical Congress of North America, Toronto, Canada, June 1988. On methods for examining structural parameters, properties such as electron densities and electronic excited states, photosynthesis, catalysis, magnetism, and superconductivity. Several aspects of electronic structure are elucidated by various experimental methods. Thirteen essays employ varied perspectives--historical, cultural, theoretical, feminist--to address recent concerns about Lawrence's work: his attitudes toward the working class, art, women, Britain; his conceptions of male-female relationships, sexuality, education; and his place in cultural and literary history.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
All of the essays—from reassessments of Lawrence's position in the English literary tradition to analyses of his influence on recent American poetry—find renewed faith in the challenge of Lawrence's work, making this volume invaluable for Lawrence scholars and students.
Michael Squires and Keith Cushman have commissioned thirteen essays that illuminate the achievement of one of England's greatest modern writers. Employing a variety of perspectives—historical, cultural, theoretical, feminist—the critics here assembled address concerns about Lawrence's work that have emerged in recent years: his attitudes toward the working class, art, women, Britain; his conceptions of male-female relationships, sexuality, education, even knowledge itself; and his place in cultural history and the evolution of the English novel.
