Lawrence wrote "The Rainbow" it was tried and found obscene, banned and burned, but if released today would probably become a top-ten bestseller. Well, Mrs. Holroyd did.
Review - D.H. Lawrence's The Widowing of Mrs. Holroyd Makes a Rare Appearance at The Mint
She was furious with her husband for many things: his unceasing womanizing even bringing prostitutes to their home ; his abusive and foul treatment of her and the children; his selfishness and coarseness. She thought she could no longer face a bleak future of more of the same.
Now Mrs. He began it as an unknown and almost unpublished writer in London, influenced by the suggestion of Ford Madox Hueffer that he should concentrate on the lives of the working class he knew so well Lawrence had been born in Eastwood in Nottinghamshire; his father was a miner at Brinsley colliery, about a mile to the north.
