    schema:description ""At the center of their story is Lawrence's literary career. Biographers Squires and TaIbot see Lawrence's major novels - The Rainbow, Women in Love, Lady Chatterley's Lover - as a fresh way to understand his turbulent and conflicted life. They reveal the extreme care with which he rewrote his personal experience to satisfy his deepest needs, and they introduce the many influential people who entered the Lawrences' lives and work. The rich materials from Frieda's letters reveal a different Lawrence - more difficult as a man but more interesting as an artist; they also reveal a different Frieda - more vibrant as a woman, more substantial as a companion. This biography gives both Lawrence and Frieda striking new dimensions."--Jacket."@en ;
