Through his amazing array of writings, ranging from short stories to novels to travelogues, Lawrence delicately explored different facets of human relationships. His vivid and poignant description of events and characters gives a realistic picture of middle-class and working-class life in England. Intensely passionate, yet touching and humane, Lawrence’s stories give expressions to our hidden and suppressed emotions in a fascinating way. The collection includes his well-known stories like ‘Things’, ‘The Horse Dealer’s Daughter’ and ‘The Prussian Officer’. About the Author David Herbert Lawrence wrote the most outspoken novels and short stories of his day; books banned for their explicit descriptions of sexual activity. Woman in Love (1920) had to be privately printed while Lady Chatterley’s Lover (1928) was expurgated until a landmark 1960 court decision allowed publication of passages featuring illicit intercourse. In 1912, Lawrence fell in love and ran away with Frieda Weekley, a member of the aristocratic German Von Richthofen family, who was at the time of their meeting married to one of Lawrence’s professors.
