Odour of Chrysanthemums
Odour of Chrysanthemums: a text in process
This separate website allows researchers to study four different versions of D H Lawrence's Odour of Chrysanthemums. It traces the development of this celebrated short story set in Eastwood, Nottinghamshire and based on Lawrence's experience of working-class life around Brinsley Colliery.
Three of the texts have been converted to electronic text format. The fourth is provided as digital image, this is the original proof with markings by Lawrence.
The resource draws on material from the University of Nottingham’s D H Lawrence Collection, which has been designated by the MLA (Museums Libraries and Archives Council) as being of outstanding significance.
