The White Peacock by D. H. Lawrence

Lawrence's first novel is set in the Eastwood area of his youth, and involves such themes as the damage associated with mismatched marriages, and the border between town and country. The book includes some notable descriptions of nature and the impact of industrialisation, with a provincialism that may be compared with that of George Eliot and Thomas Hardy.

About the Author

English novelist and poet David Herbert Richards "D. H." Lawrence (1885 - 1930) was also a playwright, essayist, literary critic and painter. Lawrence explored sexuality, emotional health and instinct in his works. His opinions earned him enemies, persecution and censorship. On his death, his reputation was that of a pornographer who had wasted his talents. But E. M. Forster, in an obituary, described him as "The greatest imaginative novelist of our generation."

She paints a pretty picture, But the story has a twist, Her paint brush is a razor, And her canvas is her wrist, She paints her pretty picture, In a color that's blood red, While using her sharp paint brush, She finally ends up dead. Her pretty pictures fading, Quite slowly on her arm, The blood is not racing through her, She can no longer do harm. She painted her pretty picture, But her picture had a twist, You see her mind was her razor, And her heart was her wrist.
