D. H. Lawrence was a British novelist, poet, playwright, essayist, literary critic and painter. He was born in 1885 in Eastwood, Nottinghamshire. From 1902 to 1908 Lawrence worked as a teacher at the British School in Eastwood. During these years he worked on his first writings: poems, short stories and a draft of a novella. While living in Germany in 1912, Lawrence was arrested and accused of being a British spy but was later released without charge. After this incident he moved, with his wife-to-be Frieda Weekley, to Italy. The couple returned to Britain soon after the outbreak of World War I and were married in 1914. They were viewed with suspicion due to Weekley's German parentage and Lawrence's open contempt for militarism. After the war, Lawrence undertook a voluntary exile from Britain and spent the remainder of his life travelling the world with his wife. He is widely recognised as one of the greatest travel writers in the English language. Lawrence sailed to Australia in February 1922 and in September of the same year moved to New Mexico, in the United States. In 1925 Lawrence suffered a near fatal attack of malaria and tuberculosis. His health remained in poor condition for the rest of his life, limiting his ability to travel. Despite this, Lawrence continued to write up to his death in 1930.
