IBNA- Known as a poet who wrote fiction, D. H. Lawrence is among the leading writers of the 20th century whose several works have been rendered into Persian.
According to IBNA
correspondent, September 11 marks the 131st
birth anniversary of David Herbert Lawrence
who was also a poet, painter and essayist. Several of his works have been translated into Persian and noticed by the Iranian readership including: The Virgin and the Gypsy
, Sons and Lovers
, The Rainbow
and Lady Chatterley's Lover
The collected works of Lawrence represent, among other things, an extended reflection upon the dehumanising effects of modernity and industrialisation. Some of the issues Lawrence explores are sexuality, emotional health, vitality, spontaneity, and instinct.
Lawrence is best known for his novels Sons and Lovers, The Rainbow, Women in Love and Lady Chatterley's Lover. In these books, Lawrence explores the possibilities for life within an industrial setting.
Lawrence in particular is concerned with the nature of relationships that can be had within such a setting. Though often classed as a realist, Lawrence in fact uses his characters to give form to his personal philosophy.
