"The Rocking-Horse Winner"

by D. H. Lawrence

Born the son of a coal-mine employee in Nottinghamshire, England, in 1885, David Herbert Lawrence is one of English literature's most controversial figures. Several of his novels-most famously, Lady Chatterley's Lover -were banned or burned as pornography. His wanderings took him all over the world, from Italy and the south of France to Mexico and New Mexico in the United States, and his work reflects the variety of cultures that he encountered. Throughout his writings, Lawrence focuses on the spiritual problems attendant upon industrial society, castigating people for losing touch with nature and with the wisdom of the body in their drive to accumulate more possessions. Plagued his whole life with respiratory illnesses, Lawrence died in Vence, France, in 1930; his ashes were later taken to Taos, New Mexico, and buried near the ranch where he once lived.
