The Fox by D. H. Lawrence
A story of the two girls, Banford and March who had taken the farm together, intending to work it all by themselves: that is, they were going to rear chickens, make a living by poultry, and add to this by keeping a cow, and raising one or two young beasts. Unfortunately, things did not turn out well.
David Herbert Richards Lawrence, an English novelist, poet, playwright, and painter, heavily criticised, censored and prosecuted for his often sexually explicit and thought provoking writing. He spent much of his adult life in a voluntary exile which 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. He is now valued as a visionary thinker and significant representative of modernism in English literature. His work represents an extended reflection upon the dehumanising effects of modernity and industrialisation. In them, Lawrence confronts issues relating to emotional health and vitality, spontaneity, and instinct.
