D.H. Lawrence
Original name: David Herbert Lawrence
Birth: Sep. 11, 1885
Broxtowe Borough
Nottinghamshire, England
Death: Mar. 2, 1930
Departement des Alpes-Maritimes
Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, France

Renowned Author. Born in Nottinghamshire, England to an illiterate coal miner and a schoolteacher, he was very sickly at birth and his parents feared he would never reach adulthood. He was plagued by illnesses his entire life. In 1912, he had a chance meeting with Frieda von Richthofen Weekley, wife of a respected university professor, Ernest. Six weeks after their meeting, they were married. This was but one of many clashes Lawrence would have with English society. He wrote several short stories and two novels from 1909-1911 and his 1913 work, "Sons and Lovers," won him critical acclaim. "The Rainbow," his 1916 followup, questioned sexual expression and morality with such bluntness that it was banned in England. A frustrated Lawrence decided to leave England forever as a result. In 1926, at the Villa Mirenda in Tuscany, Italy, he began working on his most controversial and well known novel. Originally titled "Tenderness," "Lady Chatterly's Lover" was immediately banned as pornography. Despite this, the book was very popular and unauthorized copies were mass produced and distributed in Europe and America to meet popular demand. He also authored the novels "The White Peacock," "The Trespasser," "Women in Love," "Aaron's Rod," "Kangaroo," and "The Plumed Serpent," as well as three short stories and six essays and sketches. (bio by: Donna Di Giacomo)
