Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Perhaps no other of the worlds great writers lived and wrote with the passionate intensity of D. H. Lawrence. And perhaps no other of his books so explores the mysteries between men and women-both sensual and intellectual-as Women in Love. Written in the years before and during World War I in a heat of great energy, and criticized for its exploration of human sexuality, the book is filled with symbolism and poetry-and is compulsively readable.

It opens with sisters Ursula and Gudrun Brangwen, characters who also appeared in The Rainbow, discussing marriage, then walking through a haunting landscape ruined by coal mines, smoking factories, and sooty dwellings. Soon Gudrun will choose Gerald, the icily handsome mining industrialist, as her lover; Ursula will become involved with Birkin, a school inspector-and an erotic interweaving of souls and bodies begins. One couple will find love, the other death, in Lawrences lush, powerfully crafted fifth novel, one of his masterpieces and the work that may best convey his beliefs about sex, love, and humankinds ongoing struggle between the forces of destruction and life.

Synopsis:

D.H. Lawrence's magnificent exploration of human  sexuality in the days surrounding World War I.

"Let us hesitate  no longer to announce that the sensual passions  and mysteries are equally sacred with the spiritual  mysteries and passions," wrote D.H. Lawrence  in Women In Love, a masterpiece  that heralded the erotic consciousness of the  twentieth century. Echoing elements of Lawrence's own  life, Women In Love delves into  the mysteries between men and women as two couples  strive for love against a haunting backdrop of  coal mines, factories, and a beleaguered working  class.

New introduction by Louis Menand.
