This 1996 collection of essays by distinguished scholars explores the range, scope and sheer verve of Lawrence's comic writing. Through comedy, Lawrence created an alternative cultural and social space, a means of imaginatively distancing himself from the surrounding orthodoxy. This book reveals the hidden Lawrence, the writer who deployed and enjoyed a genuine comic talent.
