David Herbert Lawrence was an English writer and poet. His collected works represent, among other things, an extended reflection upon the dehumanising effects of modernity and industrialisation. Lawrence’s writing explores issues such as sexuality, emotional health, vitality, spontaneity, and instinct.
As a controversial writer of the twentieth-century, Lawrence unknowingly shaped early modernism. Moreover, his reflections of human behavior depict the effects that industrialism had on the British people and their communities. Titles in this study guide include Sons and Lovers, The Plumed Serpent, The Rainbow, and Women in Love.
