D. H. Lawrence

Wintry Peacock


An early selection of stories from one of Britain's best-loved writers, "The Wintry Peacock" is a powerful portrayal of the devastating effects of the First World War.Disillusioned in his role as a husband and father, Egbert strives to find his identity as a soldier. Yet the brutality of war leaves no room for such romantic notions, and everything that Egbert sought to avoid is suddenly visited upon him with renewed urgency. So begins the first in a series of stories in which men and women struggle to reconcile the demands of family and freedom in the midst of injuries and deaths, infidelities, and absences brought on by the Great War.

Most famous for his last novel, "Lady Chatterley's Lover," and for the furor it provoked, D. H. Lawrence is universally regarded as one of the foremost figures in 20th-century literature.
