d.h. lawrence biography



  D.H. Lawrence's work is quite well known for its very significant examinations of the relationship between men and women. Many critics have posited that the emphasis on such social phenomena was due to the fact Lawrence had a very dependent relationship with his mother. His father wasn't someone for whom he cared much but his mother served as something of an idol and, ultimately as a model upon which many of the female characters in his stories would be based.

  Much can be read into Lawrence's stories, as they relate to women. It is quite clear from his characterizations that Lawrence saw the opposite sex as playing the role of victims -- a great deal of the time. Indeed, he saw them as independent and capable individuals who were, for the most part, constantly "kept down" by men, who only felt powerful when controlling the women in their lives.
