About the Author: D.H. Lawrence

David Herbert Richards Lawrence was an English writer of the 20th century, whose prolific and diverse output included novels, short stories, poems, plays, essays, travel books, paintings, translations, literary criticism and personal letters. His collected works represent an extended reflection upon the dehumanizing effects of modernity and industrialisation. In them, Lawrence confronts issues relating to emotional health and vitality, spontaneity, human sexuality and instinct.

Lawrence's opinions earned him many enemies and he endured official persecution, censorship, and misrepresentation of his creative work throughout the second half of his life, much of which he spent in a voluntary exile he called his "savage pilgrimage." At the time of his death, his public reputation was that of a pornographer who had wasted his considerable talents. E. M. Forster, in an obituary notice, challenged this widely held view, describing him as "the greatest imaginative novelist of our generation." Later, the influential Cambridge critic F. R. Leavis championed both his artistic integrity and his moral seriousness, placing much of Lawrence's fiction within the canonical "great tradition" of the English novel. He is now generally valued as a visionary thinker and a significant representative of modernism in English literature, although some feminists object to the attitudes toward women and sexuality found in his works.

Tres novelas cortas que D. H. Lawrence escribió entre 1920 y 1921

En la primera de ellas, «La mariquita», un conde y oficial alemán se encuentra hospitalizado en Inglaterra al borde de la muerte por su participación en la Primera Guerra Mundial. De carácter siniestro y misterioso, pronto empieza a recibir las visitas de una joven que, aunque repelida por su oscuridad, no puede dejar de verle. En la segunda, «El muñeco del capitán», una pintora y marionetista crea un títere de su amante tan fiel que, cuando la mujer de este lo descubre en su tienda, trata por todos los medios de conseguirlo. Por último, en «El zorro», historia en la que se basó la primera película de Mark Rydell, dos mujeres que viven aisladas en una pequeña granja abren un día la puerta para toparse con un joven soldado británico que resulta ser tan astuto como un zorro. A partir de ese momento, la relación entre ambas da un vuelco que culminará en un final inesperado.

«D. H. Lawrence fue el novelista más grande e imaginativo de nuestra generación».
E. M. Forster
