Lawrence, D. H.: The White Peacock. v1. 04 June 07
D. H. Lawrence is one of the 20th-Century's greatest authors.
From the Wik:
"Lawrence's first novel[The White Peacock] is set in the Eastwood area of his youth and is narrated in the first person by a rather prissy character named Cyril Beardsall. It involves such Lawrentian themes as the damage associated with mismatched marriages, and the border country between town and country. A misanthropic gamekeeper makes an appearance, in some ways the prototype of Mellors in Lawrence's last novel, Lady Chatterley's Lover."
And from another source:
"English novelist, story writer, critic, poet and painter, one of the greatest figures in 20th-century English literature. Lawrence saw sex and intuition as a key to undistorted perception of reality and a way to respond to the inhumanity of the industrial culture. From Lawrence's doctrines of sexual freedom arose obscenity trials, which had a deep effect on the relationship between literature and society."
