Meet the Author

David Herbert Richards "D. H." Lawrence (1885 - 1930) was an English novelist, poet, playwright, essayist, literary critic and painter. His collected works represent, among other things, an extended reflection upon the dehumanizing effects of modernity and industrialization. Some of the issues Lawrence explores are emotional health, vitality, spontaneity and instinct. Lawrence's opinions earned him many enemies and he endured 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 which he called his "savage pilgrimage". At the time of his death, his public reputation was that of a pornographer who had wasted his considerable talents. E. M. Forster, in an obituary notice, challenged this widely held view, describing him as, "The greatest imaginative novelist of our generation." Later, the influential Cambridge critic F. R. Leavis championed both his artistic integrity and his moral seriousness, placing much of Lawrence's fiction within the canonical "great tradition" of the English novel.

A very well-written and interesting novel by Lawrence. This is a nice, error-free edition too. The other comments must be for another version, as mine was great.

The girl fidgets. This place was usually empty, why isn't it today? And why are there only men? All looking like the sterotypical bad boy type... I guess I won't fit in this crowd.. The girl looks down at her own clothes, a plain white blouse and some jeans. She sipped her beverage as fast as she could. She brushed some of her straight black hair off her face.
