About the Author:

D.H. Lawrence (1885-1930), novelist, poet, playwright, painter, critic, is an The White Peacock, Sons and Lovers, Lady Chatterly's Lover, The Rainbow and Women in Love. His hatred of militarism, openly expressed during the First World War, sparked a wave of vilification that forced him to leave England and embark on what he called his "Savage Pilgrimage." He spent the remainder of his life travelling - to America, Italy, Austria, Mexico, the South of France and Sri Lanka - and it was during this time that he wrote such classics as Sea and Sardinia, The Plumed Serpent and Lady Chatterley's Lover. E.M. Forster called him "The greatest imaginative novelist of our generation."

Review:

"If you read only one book of travellers' tales on Mexico, it must be this one. A magnificent blood-and-ganglion pagan response to the primeval savagery south of the Rio Grande."--Frank McLynn, Guardian

"He wrote something like three dozen books, of which even the worst page dances with life that could be mistaken for no other man's, while the best are admitted, even by those who hate him, to be unsurpassed."--Catherine Carswell, Time and Tide

*He is an extraordinarily acute noticer of the world, human and natural. And it is not just the natural world that beckons Lawrence to flood it with beautiful language . . . he can be as precise and compact an observer of human interaction as Flaubert or Forster.* --James Wood, Guardian
