He also argues, however, that Lawrence's playful reworking of the Bible, like that of Nietzsche, anticipates postmodernism." "After considering the extraordinary range of Lawrence's reading and the intertexts between the Bible and Lawrence's own writing, Wright engages in a theoretically informed but clear exploration of the textual dynamics of his writing. Lawrence's writing is seen to reveal a prolonged struggle to read the Bible in a much broader spirit than that encouraged by orthodox Christianity. Wright's study sheds light not only on his work but on the Bible and on the creative process itself."--Jacket." ;
