An early selection of stories from one of Britain’s best-loved writers, The Wintry Peacock is a powerful portrayal of the devastating effects of the First World War.Disillusioned in his role as a husband and father, Egbert strives to find his identity as a soldier. Yet the brutality of war leaves no room for such romantic notions, and everything that Egbert sought to avoid is suddenly visited upon him with renewed urgency. So begins the first in a series of stories in which men and women struggle to reconcile the demands of family and freedom in the midst of injuries and deaths, infidelities, and absences brought on by the Great War. Most famous for his last novel, Lady Chatterley’s Lover, and for the furor it provoked, D. H. Lawrence is universally regarded as one of the foremost figures in 20th-century literature.

About the Author:

An English novelist, poet, playwright, literary critic, and painter, D. H. Lawrence is best known for his novels Sons and Lovers, The Rainbow, Women in Love, and Lady Chatterley s Lover. Writing in the period leading up to and following the First World War, Lawrence s work explores the nature of personal and sexual relationships in light of industrialization and the new culture of modernity. Persecuted for his strong opinions, Lawrence spent the second part of his career in an exile he referred to as his savage pilgrimage, while his work continued to be censored and misrepresented, resulting in the sensational obscenity trial of Lady Chatterley s Lover. Lawrence died in 1930 and is considered to be a visionary thinker and significant representative of modernism in English literature.
