Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In The Rainbow (1915) Lawrence challenged the customary limitations of language and convention to carry into the structures of his prose the fascination with boundaries and space that characterize the entire novel. Condemned and suppressed on first publication for its open treatment of sexuality and its "unpatriotic" spirit, the novel chronicles the lives of three generations of the Brangwen family over a period of more than 60 years, setting them against the emergence of modern England.

Synopsis:

Set in the rural midlands of England, D.H. Lawrence's 'The Rainbow' explores the lives of three generations of the Brangwen family, conveying how their rural existence is gradually but profoundly changed by the influx of industry and urbanism. But it is young Ursula Brangwen, discovering herself through her sexual awakening, who becomes the focus of Lawrence's classic work, which was banned by court order when it was first published in London in 1915.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographic references (p. [xxvii-xxviii).
