    D.H.Lawrence's first published work was a short story based around an impromptu perfomance by the the Christmas Guysers of his local district. Guysers are also mentioned in his novel 'The Rainbow'. This article compares Lawrence's portrayal of the Guysers with the actual local tradition, and determines how extensive his knowledge of the custom really was.
