David Herbert Lawrence (1885–1930) was an English writer and poet whose work famously examined the results of industrialisation on contemporary society. In his novels and poetry, Lawrence explored a variety of then-controversial issues including sexuality and emotional health, which led many to label his work pornography. Today, he is considered to be one of the most important and influential writers of his generation. Lawrence’s 1920 novel “Women in Love” is a sequel to “The Rainbow” (1915) and continues the story of Gudrun and Ursula Brangwen, exploring their lives and loves in pre-World War I England. A veritable masterpiece of English literature not to be missed by those who have read and enjoyed others works by Lawrence. Other notable works by this author include: “The White Peacock” (1911), “The Trespasser” (1912), and “Sons and Lovers” (1913). Read & Co.
