David Herbert Richards Lawrence (11 September 1885 – 2 March 1930) was an English novelist, poet, playwright, essayist, literary critic and painter who published as D. H. Lawrence. His collected works represent an extended reflection upon the dehumanising effects of modernity and industrialisation. In them, Lawrence confronts issues relating to emotional health and vitality, spontaneity, and instinct.

D. H. Lawrence is probably best known today for his novels, in particular Lady Chatterly's Lover
and the ridiculous 'obscenity' court case in the UK in 1960. For me personally, however, Lawrence's best work is in his short stories and in his poetry (which I will be posting some of soon). Where it becomes easy to see that the 'love wand' image of highbrow pornography is a gross mischaracterisation of his work.
I have been unable to find any good quality epubs of these collections, so I've had a go at putting some together myself. I hope others will find them of interest.
This book contains the following short stories:
ENGLAND, MY ENGLAND
THE BLIND MAN
YOU TOUCHED ME
SAMSON AND DELILAH
THE PRIMROSE PATH
THE HORSE DEALER'S DAUGHTER
FANNY AND ANNIE
It was originally a Project Gutenberg text that I've smartened up, added a TOC and cover, and improved the structure of the epub.
