The Plumed Serpent

Author: D.H. Lawrence
Publisher: Wordsworth Editions Ltd
Format: Paperback
Pages: 404
Genre: Novel
In this notorious late novel, Lawrence's pagan imaginings burgeon. Kate Leslie, an Irish widow touring Mexico, becomes gradually involved with a charismatic leader, and she enters a sexual relationship with his dark henchman. As the two men conspire to revive the old Aztec religion and seize power, Kate is increasingly implicated in their 'blood consciousness', phallic propaganda and right-wing violence. "The Plumed Serpent" abounds in the 'politically incorrect': Lawrence retains his ability to shock. As a publisher once said, "Anything to do with D.H.L. is rather dangerous." About the Author____________________ David Herbert Lawrence (11 September 1885 – 2 March 1930) was an English novelist, poet, playwright, essayist, literary critic and painter who published as D.H. Lawrence. His collected works represent an extended reflection upon the dehumanizing effects of modernity and industrialization. In them, Lawrence confronts issues relating to emotional health and vitality, spontaneity and instinct.
