In his last years D. H. Lawrence often wrote for newspapers; he needed the money, and clearly enjoyed the work. He also wrote several substantial essays during the same period. This meticulously-edited collection brings together major essays such as Pornography and Obscenity and Lawrence's spirited Introduction to the volume of his Paintings; a group of autobiographical pieces, two of which are published here for the first time; and the articles Lawrence wrote at the invitation of newspaper and magazine editors. There are thirty-nine items in total, thirty-five of them deriving from original manuscripts; all were written between 1926 and Lawrence's death in March 1930. They are ordered chronologically according to the date of composition; each is preceded by an account of the circumstances in which it came to be published. The volume is introduced by a substantial survey of Lawrence's career as a writer responding directly to public interests and concerns.

Speech Genres and Other Late Essays presents six short works from Bakhtin's Esthetics of Creative Discourse, published in Moscow in 1979. This is the last of Bakhtin's extant manuscripts published in the Soviet Union. All but one of these essays (the one on the Bildungsroman) were written in Bakhtin's later years and thus they bear the stamp of a thinker who has accumulated a huge storehouse of factual material, to which he has devoted a lifetime of analysis, reflection, and reconsideration.

A new collection of twenty-three literary essays from the Nobel Prize–winning author. J. M. Coetzee’s latest novel, The Schooldays of Jesus, is now available from Viking. J. M. Coetzee is not only one of the most acclaimed fiction writers in the world, he is also an accomplished and insightful literary critic. In Late Essays: 2006–2016, a thought-provoking collection of twenty-three pieces, he examines the work of some of the world’s greatest writers, from Daniel Defoe in the early eighteenth century to Goethe and Irène Némirovsky to Coetzee’s contemporary Philip Roth. Challenging yet accessible, literary master Coetzee writes these essays with great clarity and precision, offering readers an illuminating and wise analysis of a remarkable list of works of international literature that span three centuries.

On Thomas Hardy

Peter Widdowson, a leading critic of Thomas Hardy, brings together for the first time essays reflecting both his major critical work over the last 15 years and three entirely new pieces. From the introductory essay, which offers an account of the critical refashoning of Hardy, to a "postscript" on the recent film Jude, where more familiar treatments of Hardy are still seen to be at work, the collection represents a sustained and consistent re-reading of both Hardy's fiction and poetry and displays a critical practice which has helped to reshape the contemporary study of Hardy, if not literary studies more generally. The selection includes an early piece in which Widdowson develops the notion of "critiography" as an essential component of any critical practice, as well as recuperative essays on the "minor novels," The Hand of Ethelberta and A Laodicean, which read Hardy's obstrusively arch textuality as strategic rather than errant, while similar re-readings of the major "tragedies", Tess of the d'Urbervilles and Jude the Obscure, controversially present the former as a postmodern text avant la lettre and the latter as less tragedy than an anti-realist satire. In addition, there is a deconstructive analysis of the conventional critical representation of "Hardy the Poet."
