Modernist poet and author known for "Lady Chatterley's Lover" and other works.
He studied at Nottingham High School, but left school in 1901 to work at a factory that produced surgical tools.
He was very close to his mother, and her death represented a major turning point in his life and literary career, as evidenced in his autobiographical novel, "Sons and Lovers."
He married Frieda Weekley; the couple later divorced.
He was portrayed by actor Ian McKellen in the 1981 film, "Priest of Love."
