“The White Stocking” by D.H. Lawrence

Although Lawrence was reviled as a crude and pornographic writer for much of the latter part of his life, Lawrence is now widely considered—alongside James Joyce and Virginia Woolf—as one of the great modernist English-language writers. While I understand how shocking the graphic details of his writing must have been at the time, I have found that Lawrence can write, in deep and graphic detail, about the complex relationship (and not just sexual) between a man and a woman, a husband and wife, as well. Let that not be lost in all the “obscenity and pornography”.  Enjoy!
