See Article History Alternative Title: David Herbert Lawrence D. Lawrence, in full David Herbert Lawrence, born September 11,Eastwood, NottinghamshireEngland—died March 2,Vence, FranceEnglish author of novels, short stories, poems, plays, essays, travel books, and letters.
His novels Sons and LoversThe Rainbowand Women in Love made him one of the most influential English writers of the 20th century.
Youth and early career Lawrence was the fourth child of a north Midlands coal miner who had worked from the age of 10, was a dialect speaker, a drinker, and virtually illiterate. Lawrence won a scholarship to Nottingham High School — and left at 16 to earn a living as clerk in a factory, but he had to give up work after a first attack of pneumonia.
While convalescing, he began visiting the Haggs Farm nearby and began an intense friendship —10 with Jessie Chambers. He became a pupil-teacher in Eastwood in and performed brilliantly in the national examination.
Encouraged by Jessie, he began to write in ; his first story was published in a local newspaper in He kept on returning to Eastwood in imagination long after he had left it in fact.
In Lawrence went to teach in Croydon, a London suburb. Hueffer recognized his genius, the Review began to publish his work, and Lawrence was able to meet such rising young writers as Ezra Pound. His second novel, The Trespassergained the interest of the influential editor Edward Garnettwho secured the third novel, Sons and Lovers, for his own firm, Duckworth.
In the crucial year of —12 Lawrence had another attack of pneumonia. He broke his engagement to Louie and decided to give up teaching and live by writing, preferably abroad. Sons and Lovers carries this process to the point of quasi-autobiography. The central character, Paul Morel, is naturally identified as Lawrence; the miner-father who drinks and the powerful mother who resists him are clearly modeled on his parents; and the painful devotion of Miriam Leivers resembles that of Jessie Chambers.
In the novel, the mother turns to her elder son William for emotional fulfillment in place of his father. This section of the original manuscript was much reduced by Garnett before publication.
He then, in reaction, has a passionate affair with a married woman, Clara Dawes, in what is the only purely imaginary part of the novel.
Though Clara wants more from him, Paul can manage sexual passion only when it is split off from commitment; their affair ends after Paul and Dawes have a murderous fight, and Clara returns to her husband. Paul, for all his intelligence, cannot fully grasp his own unconscious motivations, but Lawrence silently conveys them in the pattern of the plot.
At this time he was engaged in two related projects. The other, more important project was an ambitious novel of provincial life that Lawrence rewrote and revised until it split into two major novels: The Rainbow, which was immediately suppressed in Britain as obscene; and Women in Love, which was not published until They were expelled from the county in on suspicion of signaling to German submarines and spent the rest of the war in London and Derbyshire.
Though threatened with military conscription, Lawrence wrote some of his finest work during the war. It was also a period of personal crisis.A Brief summary on "Why the Novel Matters" This essay is an attempt of making people try to understand life as a succession of bad and good feelings,sensations,concepts, ideas, beliefs.
