David Herbert Lawrence (1885-1930) was an English writer and poet who was born in Eastwood, Nottinghamshire, and educated at the University College, Nottingham. In 1914 Lawrence married Frieda von Richthofen, sister of the German military aviator Baron Manfred von Richthofen. D. H. Lawrence was afflicted with Tuberculosis, and traveled abroad in search of a climate that might benefit his health. The impressions he gathered in Italy, Sardinia, Australia, Mexico, and New Mexico gave Lawrence material for travel books and backgrounds for some of his fiction.

D. H. Lawrence was one of the most important English writers of the first quarter of the 20Th century. Lawrence is noted particularly for his books and short stories dealing frankly with the sex relationship in its psychological and physical aspects. Lawrence was one of the earliest of modern English writers to employ the principals of psychoanalysis in fiction. Because of their outspokenness, several of D. H. Lawrence's books were suppressed in England and the United States, but in time the ban on the books was removed.

D. H. Lawrence's masterpiece is generally considered to be the book Sons and Lovers (1913), a profound and moving study of the relationship between mother and son. Others of his books are The White Peacock (1911), The Trespasser (1912), The Rainbow (1915), The Lost Girl (1920), Women in Love (1921), Aaron's Rod (1922), Kangaroo (1923), The Plumed Serpent (1926), Lady Chatterley's Lover (1928), and The Virgin and the Gypsy (1930) D. H. Lawrence's books of verse include Look! We Have Come Through (1917), Amores, Birds, Beasts, and Flowers (1925), and a book of collected poems (1928). Miscellaneous books by D. H. Lawrence include Twilight in Italy (1916), Sea and Sardinia (1921), Mornings in Mexico (1927), Psychoanalysis and the Unconscious (1921), and Studies in Classical American Literature (1923).

Women in Love
Widely regarded as D. H. Lawrence's greatest novel, Women in Love is both a lucid account of English society before the First World War, and a brilliant evocation of the inexorable power of human desire.

Women in Love continues where The Rainbow left off, with the third generation of Brangwens: Ursula Brangwen, now a teacher at Beldover, a mining town in the Midlands, and her sister Gudrun, who has returned from art school in London. The focus of the novel is primarily on their relationships, Ursula's with Rupert Birkin, a school inspector, and Gudrun's with industrialist Gerald Crich, and later with a sculptor, Loerke. Quintessentially modernist, Women in Love is one of Lawrence's most extraordinary, innovative and unsettling works.

Sons and Lovers
The marriage of Gertrude and Walter Morel has become a battleground. Repelled by her uneducated and sometimes violent husband, delicate Gertrude devotes her life to her children, especially to her sons, William and Paul - determined they will not follow their father into working down the coal mines. But conflict is evitable when Paul seeks to escape his mother's suffocating grasp through relationships with women his own age. Set in Lawrence's native Nottinghamshire, Sons and Lovers is a highly autobiographical and compelling portrayal of childhood, adolescence and the clash of generations.

Lady Chatterly's Lover
Lawrence's frank portrayal of an extramarital affair and the explicit sexual explorations of its central characters caused this controversial book, now considered a masterpiece, to be banned as pornography until 1960.
