Lady Chatterley' s Lover

About Lawrence:
David Herbert Lawrence (11 September 1885 - 2 March 1930) was an
important and controversial English writer of the 20th century, whose
prolific and diverse output included novels, short stories, poems, plays,
essays, travel books, paintings, translations, literary criticism and per-
sonal letters. His collected works represent an extended reflection upon
the dehumanizing effects of modernity and industrialisation. In them,
Lawrence confronts issues relating to emotional health and vitality,
spontaneity, sexuality, and instinctive behaviour. Lawrence's unsettling
opinions earned him many enemies and he endured hardships, official
persecution, censorship and misrepresentation of his creative work
throughout the second half of his life, much of which he spent in a vol-
untary exile he called his "savage pilgrimage." At the time of his death,
his public reputation was that of a pornographer who had wasted his
considerable talents. E. M. Forster, in an obituary notice, challenged this
widelyheldview,describinghimas"thegreatestimaginativenovelistof
our generation." Later, the influential Cambridge critic F. R. Leavis
championed both his artistic integrity and his moral seriousness, placing
much of Lawrence's fiction within the canonical "great tradition" of the
English novel. He is now generally valued as a visionary thinker and a
significant representative of modernism in English literature, although
some feminists object to the attitudes toward women and sexuality
found in his works. Source: Wikipedia
