The Literary Gothic - the premier webguide to pre-1950 Gothic literature
Welcome to the world of DH Lawrence. Here you can explore the life of a great writer, and see how the people and places of Nottinghamshire inspired a miner's son to become one of the 20th century's most important and controversial writers. Even today, more than 70 years after his death, Lawrence remains an enthralling figure. Hailed as a genius by some, labelled an out-of-fashion misogynist by others, he's probably best known for his novels Sons and Lovers and Lady Chatterley's Lover. But he also explored an extraordinary range of emotions and subject matter and was a prolific short story writer, poet, playwright, essayist, translator, painter and man of letters. While you're here, be sure to take our virtual tour of important Lawrence landmarks including the DH Lawrence Birthplace Museum in Eastwood which is just nine miles from Nottingham city centre.
