Share this book    
A classic work of literary criticism by D. H. Lawrence, the celebrated author of Lady Chatterley’s Lover, Sons and Lovers, The Rainbow and Women in Love.
Lawrence reviews the enduring works of Benjamin Franklin, Hector St. John de Crevecoeur, James Fenimore Cooper, Edgar Allan Poe, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Richard Henry Dana, Jr., Herman Melville, and Walt Whitman, and states his belief that “the proper function of a critic is to save the tale from the artist who created it”.
A work that critics have described as pioneering and landmark, Studies in Classic American Literature is a lasting example of Lawrence's passion, understanding and independent thinking, and a wonderful insight into meaningful American literature.
