The Best 100 Authors of All Time Divider

       Everyone reads "Lady Chatterley's Lover" to satisfy their racy side.  But D. H. Lawrence's story about a lonely frustrated housewife lusting for her gardener is not your modern day tale of the rich Beverly Hills housewife having an affair with the pool guy.  Lawrence gets into the social culture of the oppression of women in his time (late 19th-early 20th century) and how they are basically bonded to hearth, home, husband and children with no way out.  His novel "Woman in Love" also explores British society of the time and how women were treated as chattel once again.  His books were considered smutty at the time.   Betty Friedan, Gloria Steinem and all feminists the world over owe a lot to him and his social conscience.
