This book discusses D. H. Lawrence’s interest in, and engagement with, transport as a literal and metaphorical focal point for his ontological concerns. Focusing on five key novels, this book explores issues of mobility, modernity and gender. First exploring how mechanized transportation reflects industry and patriarchy in Sons and Lovers, the book then considers issues of female mobility in The Rainbow, the signifying of war transport in Women in Love, revolution and the meeting of primitive and modern in The Plumed Serpent, and the reflection of dystopian post-war concerns in Lady Chatterley’s Lover. Appealing to Lawrence, modernist, and mobilities researchers, this book is also of interest to readers interested in early twentieth century society, the First World War and transport history.

The rivalry that presaged the world's most tenacious conflict As the Arab-Israeli conflict continues to plague the Middle East, historian Ronald Florence offers extraordinary new insights on its origins. This is the story of T. E. Lawrence, the young British officer who became famous around the world as Lawrence of Arabia, Aaron Aaronsohn, an agronomist from Palestine, and the antagonism that divided them over the fate of the dying Ottoman Empire during World War I--a clash of visions that set Arab nationalism and Zionism on a direct collision course that reverberates to this day.

Kentucky has a rich legacy of ghostly visitations. Lynwood Montell has harvested dozens of tales of haunted houses and family ghosts from all over the Bluegrass state. Many of the stories were collected from elders by young people and are recounted exactly as they were gathered. Haunted Houses and Family Ghosts of Kentucky includes chilling tales such as that of the Tan Man of Pike County, who trudges invisibly through a house accompanied by the smell of roses, and the famed Gray Lady of Liberty Hall in Frankfort, a houseguest who never left. Montell tells the story of a stormy night, shortly before Henry Clay's death, when the ghost of the statesman's old friend Daniel Boone calls upon him, and then recounts the more modern story of the ghouls that haunt the rehearsal house of the band The Kentucky Headhunters. Included are accounts of haunted libraries, mansions, bedrooms, log cabins, bathrooms, college campuses, apartments, furniture, hotels, and distilleries, as well as reports of eerie visitations from ghostly grandmothers, husbands, daughters, uncles, cousins, babies, slaves, Civil War soldiers, dogs, sheep, and even wildcats. Almost all of Kentucky's 120 counties are represented. Though the book emphasizes the stories themselves, Montell offers an introduction discussing how local history, local character, and local flavor are communicated across the generations in these colorful stories.

"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. Visual art is by Lawrence, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Dorothy Brett. A little-known Lawrence landscape illustrates "terra incognita" in a particularly graphic way. Although Lawrence and O'Keeffe did not know each other in New Mexico, their love of austere Southwestern landscape proves comparable in her graphic medium and his literary work. Dorothy Brett, an English-born painter who lived with the Lawrences in America, depicted Pueblo ceremonials in paintings that can be compared and contrasted with Lawrence's literary descriptions of similar dances. Contributions range from territorial outposts in Roman Europe, to Polar expeditions of the last "Heroic Age" of exploration, to Lawrence's own residence in the American Southwest and Mexico. Writers employ ideas by a wide range of theorists, including Mikhail Bakhtin, Edward Said, and Yi-Fu Tuan, as well as a galaxy of Lawrence critics.

Winner of the 2009 Romantic Times Award for BEST FANTASY NOVEL “Even the most jaded fantasy reader will quickly fall under the spell of her characters and the warm, intimate voice Warrington uses to tell their stories. Highly recommended.” —Charles de Lint, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction Rosie Fox is a daughter of Aetherials, an ancient race from the Spiral—the innermost realm of the Otherworld—who live secretly among us. Yet she and her kind are bereft of their origins, because on Earth, in a beautiful village named Cloudcroft, the Great Gates between worlds stand sealed. Her parents, Auberon and Jessica, are the warm heart of her loving family. But on the hill lives the mysterious, aloof Lawrence Wilder, Gatekeeper to the inner realms. Tortured by private demons, he is beset by trouble on all sides; his wife has vanished and his sons Jon and Sam are bitter and damaged. Lawrence is duty-bound to throw open the Gates for the Night of the Summer Stars, a ritual granting Aetherials connection to their mystical heritage. But when he bars the Gates—haunted by fears of a deadly menace within the Spiral—he defies tradition and enrages the Aetherial community. What will become of them, starved of their essential life force? Is Lawrence betraying them—or protecting them? Growing up amid this turmoil, Rosie and her brothers, along with Sam and Jon Wilder, resign themselves to living as humans. Yet they know their elders have denied them their birth right, harbouring dark secrets in a conspiracy of silence. When Sam is imprisoned for an all-too-human crime, age-old wounds sunder the two families... yet Rosie is drawn into his web, even as she fears the passions awoken in her by the dangerous Wilder clan. Torn between duty and desire, between worlds, Rosie unwittingly precipitates a tragedy that compels her to journey into the Otherworld, where unknown terrors await. Accompanied by the one man most perilous to her, she must learn hard lessons about life and love in order to understand her Aetherial nature... and her role in the terrifying conflict to come. Praise for Elfland “A glittering treasure trove and a stunning read for Warrington’s multitude of fans.” —Tanith Lee, author of The Silver Metal Lover “A literally enchanted story of magic, love, loyalty and hope.” —Liz Williams, author of The Ghost Sister “Sensuous and intense – buy it, read it, love it.” —Melanie Rawn, author of Fire Raiser “Elfland is an absorbing and gripping journey into a world where the otherworldly shivers alongside us, unseen... Sensitive characterisation and evocative scene-setting draw you into the tale; you won’t want to leave it.” —Storm Constantine, author of the Wraeththu Chronicles “A heady cocktail of urban fantasy and wild romance, invigorating and intoxicating. Warrington’s writing has lyrical beauty, and her characters are a delight to discover.” —Justina Robson, author of Glorious Angels “Romantic in every sense, richly imagined and richly told, Elfland is a complex fantasy of the heart, the faerie heart; and it’s a delight. Immediately engaging and intensely satisfying, this is a class act from a fine writer.” —Chaz Brenchley, author of The Books of Outremer

A comprehensive history of censorship in modern Britain For Victorian lawmakers and judges, the question of whether a book should be allowed to circulate freely depended on whether it was sold to readers whose mental and moral capacities were in doubt, by which they meant the increasingly literate and enfranchised working classes. The law stayed this way even as society evolved. In 1960, in the obscenity trial over D. H. Lawrence's Lady Chatterley's Lover, the prosecutor asked the jury, "Is it a book that you would even wish your wife or your servants to read?" Christopher Hilliard traces the history of British censorship from the Victorians to Margaret Thatcher, exposing the tensions between obscenity law and a changing British society. Hilliard goes behind the scenes of major obscenity trials and uncovers the routines of everyday censorship, shedding new light on the British reception of literary modernism and popular entertainments such as the cinema and American-style pulp fiction and comic books. He reveals the thinking of lawyers and the police, authors and publishers, and politicians and ordinary citizens as they wrestled with questions of freedom and morality. He describes how supporters and opponents of censorship alike tried to remake the law as they reckoned with changes in sexuality and culture that began in the 1960s. Based on extensive archival research, this incisive and multifaceted book reveals how the issue of censorship challenged British society to confront issues ranging from mass literacy and democratization to feminism, gay rights, and multiculturalism.

Working at the crossroads of contemporary geographical and cultural theory, the book explores how social spaces function as sites which foreground D. H. Lawrence and Virginia Woolf's critiques of the social order and longings for change. Looking at various social spaces from homes to nations to utopian space brought into the here and now the book shows the ways in which these writers criticize and deconstruct the contemporary symbolic, physical, and discursive spatial topoi of the dominant socio-spatial order and envision a more liberating and inclusive human geography. In addition, the book calls for the need to redress the tendency of some spatial theories to underestimate the political potential of literary discourse about space, instead of simply and mechanically appropriating some theoretical concepts to literary criticism. One of the central findings in the book, therefore, is that literary texts can perform subversive interventions in the production of social space through their critical interaction with dominant spatial codes.

Image and Power is an important work of literary and cultural criticism. This collection of essays focuses on some of the major issues addressed by women's writing in the twentieth century, concerning genre, subjectivity and social and cultural expectations, issues which in the past have been regarded from an essentially male perspective. The text introduces women writers whose novels have been widely read and provides an important contribution to the debate about women in literature.
