D.H. Lawrence

David Herbert Lawrence was born September 11, 1885 in Eastwood, Nottinghamshire. The author of more than 40 books, he was one of the most influential and controversial novelists of the 20th Century. It was frank discussion of sexual matters and life situations that won the novelist, poet and painter literary notoriety.

Lawrence graduated from University College, Nottingham in 1908 and published his first novel, "The White Peacock," three years later. In 1913, he produced what many consider his first masterpiece, "Sons and Lovers."

In 1912, Lawrence traveled to the Continent with his former professor's wife, Frieda Weekley. They were married two years later. They returned to England during World War I, and faced many challenges as a result of Weekley's German heritage and Lawrence's opposition to the war.




It was not until 1928, with the publication of his most well known and controversial novel, "Lady Chatterly's Lover," that Lawrence became a household name. The story of a love affair between a member of the nobility and her husband's gamekeeper led to much controversy. Not until 1959 was the work published in its full form in the United States. England followed suit the next year.

The work brought fame and financial success, but Lawrence would not enjoy it long. Tuberculosis took his life in 1930.
