Abstract

Literature of a country reflects the life and social culture of its subjects. A piece of literature or a literary work is always set in a particular period. For instance, the dominant myth of the nineteenth century was evolution. Nineteenth century thinkers and writers tended to interpret the myths optimistically in their works. They averted their eyes from the grim fact that what we regard as improvement in nature is the exception to the general rule of degeneration. To the optimistic evolutionist, science was giving the means to better fellow men. The early twentieth century and late nineteenth century era were thus marked by progressive thinking. In the portrayal and understanding of the concepts such as religion, nation, women, culture, Wells and Lawrence were one, who believed both Wells and Lawrence can be studied for comparison. This paper will give an outline of how Portrayal of Cultural and Social life in the Titles of D.H. Lawrence is analyzed in modern Perspectives.
