About the Documentary

Novelist, poet, social critic and above all in his own words an “outsider” D H Lawrence’s life is explored in the revealing new documentary D H Lawrence: Sex, Exile and Greatness, directed by Adrian Munsey and Vance Goodwin. Author of classics such Sons and Lovers, The Rainbow, Women in Love and Lady Chatterley’s Lover, Lawrence was initially helped by members of the Bloomsbury group but his sense of being an outsider led him to follow his own path, not least because he was not afraid in his writing and in his life of challenging established and conventional values. Partly because of his early death, partly because of the harassment he suffered, and partly because of the poverty he endured, there is a deep sense of sadness underlying his life - despite his brilliance and enormous talent.
