Lawrence (1885-1930) was an English writer and poet. His collected works represent, among other things, an extended reflection upon the dehumanising effects of modernity and industrialisation, and some of the themes he explores are sexuality, emotional health, spontaneity and instinct. This semi-autobiographical novel first published in 1923 tells the story of a visit to New South Wales in Australia by an English writer and his German wife in the early 1920s, drawing on Lawrence's own three-month visit to the that country with his wife Frieda in 1922.
