The Fox The Captain's Doll The Ladybird
The acclaimed author of Sons and Lovers explores the effects of war on humanity in three novellas. Written between November 1920 and December 1921, these novellas were enthusiastically received by D. H. Lawrence’s readers. Including the original ending of The Fox, the Cambridge edition adds new depth to the legacy of Lawrence’s story of a disruptive fox in a troublesome time. A visit to Austria in 1920 inspired the characters and settings of The Captain’s Doll, diving into a storied relationship between a Scottish soldier and a German countess in occupied Germany. Also featuring the original unedited edition of The Ladybird, a heartbreaking tale of a wounded soldier and the English nurse who tended his wounds, this is a complete collection of three of Lawrence’s brilliantly crafted war stories about human emotions and relationships.
