D.H. Lawrence

David Herbert Lawrence (September 11, 1885 - March 2, 1930) was a British writer who wrote novels, short stories, poems, plays, essays, travel books, and letters.

He was born in Eastwood[?], Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom.

Lawrence was one of the most important English writers of the 20th century. Among his many works, very famous are his novels Sons and Lovers (1913), The Rainbow (1915), Women in Love (1920), and Lady Chatterley's Lover (1928). The publication of the latter caused a scandal due to its explicit sex scenes and perhaps particularly because the lover was working-class, and an obscenity trial followed in Britain. The British publisher, Penguin Books[?], won the court case that ensued.

He died in Vence[?], France.

His birthplace, in Eastwood, 8a Victoria Street, is now a museum.
