D. H. Lawrence - LIFE STORIES
 
 
3/2/1930     D. H. Lawrence's "Ship of Death"
On this day in 1930 forty-four-year-old D. H. Lawrence died in Vence, France. The medical cause was tuberculosis, but Lawrence at least partially believed that a lifetime of vilification was to blame: "The hatred which my books have aroused comes back at me and gets me here," he told a friend, tapping his chest. "If I get the better of if in one place it goes to another."
9/11/1885     Sons and Lovers, Mothers and Fathers
On this day in 1885 D. H. Lawrence was born in Eastwood, outside Nottingham, the fourth of five children. Lawrence's autobiographical novel, Sons and Lovers (1913) made famous the tortured conditions of his upbringing: his uneducated father's pit-and-pub life, his mother's contempt for this and her self-sacrifice to escape, Lawrence's own conflicted feelings about all of it.
12/20/1929     Lady Chatterley, Philip Larkin
On this day in 1929 D. H. Lawrence's Lady Chatterley's Lover was banned in the United States. This was only one of a series of censures from the book's first publication the year before until the landmark obscenity trials in 1959 (U.S.) and 1960 (Britain), but for Lawrence personally it may have been the most devastating. For Philip Larkin, on the other hand, life began "Between the end of the Chatterley ban / And the Beatles' first LP. . . ."
12/31/2006     Auld Lang Syne Rhyme
This day, or the moment of this day's passing, has brought out the commemorative spirit in many. D. H. Lawrence's "New Year's Eve," is from his book-length cycle of poems, Look! We Have Come Through, which documents Lawrence's first years with Freida; though published in the same year as Eliot's "Prufrock," the poems offer a passionate alternative to measuring out life by coffee spoons.

Academy of American Poets
Lawrence biography, poetry, bibliography, and links. Selected poems include "Baby Tortoise," "The Elephant is Slow to Mate," "How Beastly the Bourgeois Is," "Nothing to Save," "Trees in the Garden," "Whales Weep Not!" and "The White Horse."

"He believed in writing poetry that was stark, immediate and true to the mysterious inner force which motivated it. Many of his best-loved poems treat the physical and inner life of plants and animals; others are bitterly satiric and express his outrage at the puritanism and hypocrisy of conventional Anglo-Saxon society. Lawrence was a rebellious and profoundly polemical writer with radical views, who regarded sex, the primitive subconscious, and nature as cures to what he considered the evils of modern industrialized society. Tremendously prolific, his work was often uneven in quality, and he was a continual source of controversy, often involved in widely-publicized censorship cases, most famously for his novel Lady Chatterley's Lover (1928)."
