Literary Criticism

In this early essay, Bates addresses myths and controversies surrounding Lawrence, and praises his style as poetic: in "pages in any book he wrote -- in them one finds prose as quivering and lucent and rich with colour as Keats's poetry." He concludes that "it is not unlikely that posterity may accept him not merely as the greatest imaginative novelist, but the greatest novelist of our generation." Bates would devote attention to Lawrence in 1941 in The Modern Short Story. In The New Clarion (London, i, 8, p. 174, July 30, 1932.)
