Meet the Author

D. H. Lawrence (1885-1930) was a prolific man of letters whose novels were famous for their frank depiction of human sexuality and scathing criticism of modernity. Reviled by the literary establishment during his life, he is now regarded as one of England's greatest writers, and his novels, especially Lady Chatterley's Lover and Sons and Lovers, have been recognized as masterpieces.

The Prussian Officer is a well-written moving piece based on the emotional effects of conforming to military discipline. Attention to detail is superb. Other stories in this collection are of the same quality. I recommend this be added to your to do list.
