�Love Among the Haystacks� was written by D H Lawrence in 1912. It was the eighteenth of his sixty-seven short stories, all of which will be published individually in ebook format by the Blackthorn Press. In this story, Lawrence returns to the scenes of his young manhood with farming scenes and life he experienced when courting Jessie Chambers at Haggs Farm in Nottinghamshire. Two brothers find love in two different women, both out of the ordinary for farm lads - one a German nanny, the other the wife of a tramp who begs food from the farmers. Both men are redeemed from their rivalry for each other and their suppressed sexuality by the first experiences of love on the same night.
