Abstract :

No writer can remain unaffected by the social, cultural, political and intellectual environment of his age. Every writer depicts the characteristics of his age as he generally transcribes from life. Lawrence's life and work represent a revolt against the values and ideas of the nineteenth century. He appears to be a novelist of the abnormal simply because normality has become something abnormal during present age. D. H. Lawrence was a prolific writer. He has written poems, novels and short stories. He is one of the first grade novelists of England who makes use of the science of psychology in his novels. Lawrence was an artist eminently gifted with a prophetic vision of life. D. H. Lawrence can rightly be described as one of the most disputed genius in the history of the modern English novel. He has been excessively praised as well as excessively abused. He has often been criticized as a sex manic and his novels are condemned for being formals. An autobiographical note runs through almost all his novels. He was a tortured soul for full forty five years of his life and his writing express his inner suffering, frustration and emotional stress and complexes. Lawrence is said to have been making a Cathartic efforts while writing all this in his novels.
