D. H. Lawrence: a polemicist against his country and his age, petty materialism and class conflict, militarism, and sexual repression. In this vintage program, the late novelist Anthony Burgess appraises the life of a literary iconoclast ironically dubbed an icon of the 20th century. With a focus on Lawrence's dissidence, Burgess analyzes the influence of his provincial childhood in Eastwood; studies his parents, polar opposites; and traces his flight from parochialism-first to nature, then to the metropolis, and finally into exile. Readings by Sir Ian McKellen from Lawrence's novels, essays, and poems flesh out this larger-than-life personality.
