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.
