Volume V covers the three years from March 1924 to March 1927. It comprises over 890 letters, of which about 350 are previously unpublished, and the others are printed in full for the first time.

Also included are a biographical introduction, two maps of Oaxaca (Mexico), illustrations, chronology and an index. In 1924 Lawrence is in the United States to check on the failing business of his American publisher and to rewrite his Mexican novel The Plumed Serpent.

Editorial Reviews

'The splendid Cambridge Edition of the Letters of D. H. Lawrence is most welcome. It has all the virtues of a good modern scholarly edition of a writer's letters. Though one has already been familiar with many aspects of Lawrence's personality in his other writings, this comprehensive edition of his letters projects a cohesive self-portriat of the living artist.'
