Abstract:

In this engaging book, Enid Hilton vividly recalls her Nottinghamshire childhood in Eastwood, where she first met D.H. Lawrence, and her subsequent friendship with him and his wife, Frieda, through the years. She records the immediate impact of their first meeting when her father was helping 'Bert' with The White Peacock, and their developing friendship as he shared in her parents' political and literary circle - among them Beatrice and Sidney Webb, Keir Hardie, Ramsay MacDonald - and in walks in the surrounding countryside and on holiday. Through him she was able to see beyond the stodgy Victorian limits of Eastwood, meeting other writers, among them Katherine Mansfield, Middleton Murry and Aldous Huxley, as well as Alice Dax, the model for Clara in Sons and Lovers. In later years, now a young married woman, Enid visited the Lawrences in Italy, touring Europe at Lawrence's instigation, seeing Vesuvius immediately before its 1922 eruption, and smuggling out the manuscript of his latest book to England - which she later, of course, discovered to be Lady Chatterley's Lover. Here, an invaluable addition to the existing material on the writer, is another side to D.H. Lawrence - a delightful companion, full of fun. The second part of the autobiography is no less vivid, and is concerned with the author's experiences travelling the backroads of Mendocino County, northern California, in the 1940s and '50s. Working as a social worker, she covered an isolated rural district of 1,500 square miles, consisting of logging camps, small, remote towns and Indian Reservations. These vignettes depict those whom she met and encouraged to make the most of their sometimes seemingly restricted lives. Illustrated with black and white photographs of D.H. Lawrence and Enid Hilton's family, More Than One Life is a rare personal account of D.H. Lawrence in his local community and of their friendship which continued for over thirty years, as well as a valuable depiction of life in northern California during the first half of this century. An important addition to our knowledge of D.H. Lawrence, the book will also be of interest to historians.
