D H Lawrence

Author: D. H. Lawrence

Profile: D. H. Lawrence was born in Eastwood, Nottinghamshire, England and died in Vence, France. He was an English novelist, poet and writer. He completed his education at University College Nottingham.

Some of his most notable works include Sons and Lovers, The Rainbow, Women in Love, John Thomas and Lady Jane, Lady Chatterley’s Lover. His notable short stories include Odour of Chrysanthemums, The Virgin and the Gypsy and The Rocking-Horse Winner.

In the process of giving his own opinions, Lawrence gained a lot of enemies and underwent censorship, official persecution and his creative work was misrepresented, all through the second half of his life. Lawrence spent a major part of his second life in ‘savage pilgrimage’ which is called voluntary exile. He gained public reputation of being a pornographer, at the time of his death and one who did not treasure the immense talents he had. Lawrence has been described as ‘the greatest imaginative novelist of our generation’ according to E.M.Forster. His moral seriousness and artistic integrity have been championed later, by F.R.Leavis, the literary critic.

Writing style: D.H. Lawrence’s genre is modernism. An extended reflection upon how the industrialization and humanity have a dehumanizing effect is represented in his collected works amongst other things. Issues related to emotional health, instinct, sexuality, spontaneity and vitality are explored in his writings.
