The Boy in the Bush
Cambridge University Press, 31. aug 1990 - 564 pages
At D.H. Lawrence's suggestion, a nurse and author, Mollie Skinner wrote about a young Englishman's reactions to late nineteenth-century Western Australia; then Lawrence completely rewrote it. This is the first critical edition of that novel, The Boy in the Bush. The reading text eliminates publishers' censorship and the miscopyings of typists and typesetters. The compositional development and the variants of the typescripts and first editions are given in the textual apparatus. Explanatory notes distinguish local and historical material. Appendices include maps, an outline history of the colony and two of Lawrence's essays about the collaboration, one of which appears here for the first time in English.
