“Instead of chopping yourself down to fit the world, chop the world down to fit yourself.” D. H. Lawrence, ‘Women in Love’

“One of the 1000 novels everyone must read” The Guardian

“As for Lawrence himself, he has become almost totally synonymous with sex – an earthy, unrestrained, would-you-let-your-servants-read-it kind of sex” Gerard Gilbert, The Independent

“The two greatest novels written in English in the 20th century were published within a year of each other, DH Lawrence's Women in Love in 1921, James Joyce's Ulysses in 1922” Howard Jacobson

'Women in Love is a work of genius. It contains characters which are masterpieces of pure creation' New Statesman

“one of my favourite books, and his most acclaimed novel is Women in Love. Nihilism, death, love, and modernism all rolled into one.” Valentina Zannoni

WOMEN IN LOVE is considered one of Lawrence’s greatest works, a stunning novel about the personal and sexual liberation of the Brangwen sisters, Gudrun and Ursula. It has been adapted for the screen several times most notably in the notorious 1969 British film directed by Ken Russell starring Alan Bates, Oliver Reed, and Glenda Jackson.

D. H. Lawrence

“The greatest imaginative novelist of our generation” E. M. Forster

David Herbert Lawrence was born in 1885 in Eastwood, Nottinghamshire. His father was a coal miner, but his mother was determined that her children should not end up in the mines. He won a scholarship to Nottingham High School, although he left without qualifications. After studying at Nottingham University, Lawrence received his teaching certificate at 22.

His first novel, ‘The White Peacock was published in 1911, when he was 25. In 1912 he fell in love with Frieda von Richthofen, who was married to Professor Ernest Weekly. Frieda left her husband and three children, and eloped with Lawrence to Bavaria and then to Austria, Germany and Italy.

Lawrence's radical views on sex, life, and art earned him many enemies and he endured official persecution, censorship, and misrepresentation of his creative work throughout the second half of his life.

D. H. Lawrence died at Villa Robermond, in Vence, France on March 2, 1930.
A prolific novelist, story writer, critic, poet and painter, he was one of the greatest figures in 20th-century English literature.

D. H. Lawrence’s novels include: The White Peacock (1911),The Trespasser (1912), Sons and Lovers (1913), The Rainbow (1915), Women in Love (1920), The Lost Girl (1920), Aaron's Rod (1922), Kangaroo (1923), The Boy in the Bush (1924), The Plumed Serpent (1926), Lady Chatterley's Lover (1928), The Escaped Cock (1929), The Virgin and the Gypsy (1930).
