Über den Autor

David Herbert Lawrence (1885 – 1930) was an English novelist and poet. He was most famous for the novels Sons and Lovers, The Rainbow, Women in Love, and Lady Chatterley's Lover. In his works he raised the topics of dehumanizing effects of modernity and industrialization. He also explored such issues as sexuality, emotional health, vitality, spontaneity, and instinct. The works and topics he worked with were coming ahead of their time which often bought Lawrence to official persecution, censorship, and misrepresentation of his creative work throughout the second half of his life, much of which he spent in a voluntary exile. The meaning of his works and worldwide acclaim came only after his death.
