�New Eve and Old Adam� was written by D H Lawrence in 1912. It was the seventeenth of his sixty-seven short stories, all of which will be published individually in ebook format by the Blackthorn Press. The story is largely autobiographical, telling the simple tale of an argument between a husband and wife, reflecting the difficult time Lawrence and his new wife Frieda were having as they struggled to set the rules for their own relationship. What was the place of a woman to be in a modern marriage? Lawrence argued that it was the woman's place to submit or unhappiness would ensue at it did in this story. The wife is unable to submit to her husband and the marriage disintegrates. This is not a popular view of marriage where a partnership of equals seems more acceptable.
