David Herbert Lawrence (Eastwood 1885 - Vence, France 1930) was an English writer, critic, poet and painter. His first novel, The White Peacock (1911), launched Lawrence as a writer at the age of 25.

Lawrence was friend of Aldous Huxley with whom he traveled in Italy and France (1920s).

In 1914, Lawrence married Frieda Von Richthofen. They lived in Italy, Ceylon, Australia, New Mexico and Mexico, as a voluntary exile.

The prolific D. H. Lawrence is best known for his novels Sons and Lovers, The Rainbow, Women in Love and Lady Chatterley's Lover. Mr. Noon, 1984, was his last published novel. "Snake" and "How Beastly the Bourgeoisie Is" are probably his most anthologized poems. Lady Chatterly's Lover was banned for a time in both UK and the US as pornographic. The Plumed Serpent (1926) was about Mexico and its ancient Aztec religion.

Lawrence won the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for fiction.
