Selected Stories by D. H. Lawrence

Because of his frank and honest portrayal of human sexuality in the controversial works for which he is best known, e.g. Lady Chatterley's Lover and Women in Love, D. H. Lawrence was not widely respected in his day. In fact at the time of his death he was considered little more than a pornographer. However E. M. Forester challenged this portrayal calling Lawrence The greatest imaginative novelist of our generation, and with his extended reflection upon the dehumanizing effects of modernity and industrialization, Lawrence has ultimately secured his position as one of the greatest writers in the English language. The Prussian Officer and Other Stories is a collection of his short stories first published in 1914 which exhibit this great literary talent. The stories of this volume include the following tales: The Prussian Officer, The Thorn in the Flesh, Daughters of the Vicar, A Fragment of Stained Glass, The Shades of Spring, Second Best, The Shadow in the Rose Garden, Goose Fair, The White Stocking, A Sick Collier, The Christening, and Odour of Chrysanthemums.
