Description

For many of us D.H. Lawrence was a schoolboy hero. Who can forget sniggering in class at the mention of Women in Love or Lady Chatterley’s Lover? Lawrence was a talented if nomadic writer whose novels were passionately received, suppressed at times and generally at odds with Establishment values. This of course did not deter him. At his death in 1930 at the young age of forty-four he was more often thought of as a pornographer but in the ensuing years he has come to be more rightly regarded as one of the most imaginative writers these shores have produced. As well as his novels and plays he was also a masterful poet and wrote over 800 of them. In this collection we discover and nourish ourselves on a small part of that legacy that reveals much about the man and his views on life. Our readers include Richard Mitchley and Ghizela Rowe.

About the author

D. H. Lawrence (1885–1930) was an English novelist, essayist, playwright, and poet remembered as one of the twentieth century’s most influential writers. His novel Lady Chatterley’s Lover garnered controversy for its graphic sexual content and was banned in the United States until 1959. Lawrence’s works, including Women in Love and Sons and Lovers, are now considered to be classics of English literature. He died in Vence, France, from complications of tuberculosis.
