AUTHOR OF THE BOOK

David Herbert Lawrence wrote in many genres – fiction, poetry, travelogues, criticism and psychology. He also left behind a mass of letters that touched on many subjects. Published privately in New York in 1920, Women in Love is termed an ‘epic of vice’ by critics because of its bold analysis of sexuality.
