D.H. Lawrence at Charleston Literature Festival with Alison MacLeod

Time: 5.30pm
Date: Thu, 26th May 2022
Venue: Charleston Literature Festival

Published in 1928, D. H. Lawrence’s ‘Lady Chatterley’s Lover’ was sexually provocative and a searing indictment of class. Using the book’s obscenity trial as a backdrop, Alison MacLeod’s latest novel, ‘Tenderness’, captures the shift from suppression to sensuality during the 20th century. She talks to Lara Feigel, whose new book ‘Look! We Have Come Through! Living with D.H. Lawrence’ traces the arc of Lawrence’s life and the ways his writing has unexpectedly altered her own.
