I often wonder how D H Lawrence was able to be so prolific. He must have made enough $$ from his novels to work full time. I think of Lawrence and Blake as kindred spirits. Lawrence, between poetry, novels, essays and plays, tried his hand at painting.
Think of what Lawrence was able to accomplish in 44 years.

Thanks, James. You remind me that he did have commissions or the
equivalent. I should find a biography of him--don't think I've ever
read one. I'm sure he self-published--hand-made books, in fact.
But "real" companies published him, too? Odd that I know so little
about him. The romantics were my first poet-heroes.
