Public lecture

Swansea University's series of public lectures begins on Monday 17th October. I remember ploughing through "The Rainbow" and "Sons and Lovers" for my English A Level many aeons ago, getting rather lost in the complicated emotional tangles of Lawrence's characters. However, I rather enjoyed the parts where D.H.Lawrence gave a vivid description of the development of the Nottingham coalfield, which may explain why I've spent most of my professional life teaching geography and history.
