About D. H. Lawrence

See more books from this Author
The son of a miner, the prolific novelist, poet, and travel writer David Herbert Lawrence was born in Eastwood, Nottinghamshire, in 1885. He attended Nottingham University and found employment as a schoolteacher. His first novel, The White Peacock, was published in 1911, the same year his beloved mother died and he quit teaching after contracting pneumonia. The next year Lawrence published Sons and Lovers and ran off to Germany with Frieda Weekley, his former tutor's wife. His masterpieces The Rainbow and Women in Love were completed in quick succession, but the first was suppressed as indecent and the second was not published until 1920. Lawrence's lyrical writings challenged convention, promoting a return to an ideal of nature where sex is seen as a sacrament. In 1928 Lawrence's final novel, Lady Chatterley's Lover, was banned in England and the United States for indecency. He died of tuberculosis in 1930 in Venice.

"Lawrence maintained that it was his finest work." I can tell that it fishes deep into the spirit of the time.

They don't believe in anything they have known, but they want to find something that they don't know to believe in — a phrase which sounds utterly nonsensical and as if I could have lifted it directly out of the novel.

Yeah, except, a lot of the time the books that are banned are not as raunchy as the imagination of the people who banned them.
