The Priest of Love: A Life of D H Lawrence

By Harry T Moore

‘I shall always be a Priest of Love and a glad one. Once you’ve known what love can do, there’s no disappointment any more, and no despair.’ On 2 March 1930 D. H. Lawrence died, aged forty-four. Since then the controversial author of works such as ‘Lady Chatterley’s Lover’, ‘Sons and Lovers’ and ‘Women in Love’ has become a legend both as a writer and a man. From a career that began in an ugly mining village in the Midlands, Lawrence was to become what E.M. Forster called ‘the greatest imaginative novelist of our generation.’ Yet during his lifetime, and for years afterwards, his views were greeted with hostility, and his works banned. By exploring the reality behind the myth, Harry T. Moore has created a vivid and everlasting portrait of Lawrence – as the prophet, the artist, but above all, as the man.
