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

widely held view, describing him as "the greatest imaginative novelist of 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
