This short collection of poetry is a wonderful introduction to Lawrence's masterful, whimsical, and entertaining prose. Detailing his observations of a group of tortoises living in his garden, he explores intimacy in a way no others have.
DH Lawrence (1885-1930) was an English poet and novelist. Famed for his lyrical prose, he was uncompromising in his mission to uncover the consequences of modernity and industrialization, particularly on sexuality, instinct, and spontaneity. His works, although innovative, were not truly appreciated until after his death, the most notable of which 'Lady Chatterley's Lover' was adapted to screen in 1981.
