September 11, 1885: British writer D.H. Lawrence’s life was marked by conflict and controversy. During World War I he managed to be accused of spying by both the Germans and the British, and his later works, including Lady Chatterley’s Lover, were labelled pornographic. He was born in Nottinghamshire, 128 years ago today.
