Studies in Classic American Literature  (1923) 
by D. H. Lawrence
This seminal work of literary criticism by the English writer D. H. Lawrence is startling, even revolutionary, for several reasons. The prose style is extremely informal, yet filled with penetrating psychological and moral insights. The themes running through Lawrence's criticism are his concern with the primacy of the individual spirit and his belief in the importance of love, for better or for worse, as a force in human affairs.— Excerpted from Studies in Classic American Literature on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The author of this work, published in 1923, died in 1930, so the work is in the public domain in countries and areas copyrighting for lifetime plus up to 50 years, including Canada. However, if published between 1923 and 1977 inclusive, the American non-acceptance of the rule of the shorter term, or the Copyright Term Extension Act if published in the USA with copyright notices and renewals as legally needed, would make this work still considered copyrighted for 95 years after publication, to expire at year end, i.e. to enter the public domain in the USA on January 1, 2019. If created through 1977 but published between 1978 and 2002 inclusive, this work would still considered copyrighted until at least 2047. If published outside the USA, the reason is usually due to the work having not entered the public domain through copyright expiration in its source country or area on January 1, 1996.
