Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A classic Lawrence novel of sensual awakening and the yearning for freedom and winner of the 1920 James Tait Black Memorial Prize

 

The daughter of well-to-do trades people in the fictional mining town of Woodhouse, Alvina Houghton struggles to find excitement in her provincial surroundings and worries that she is condemned to become an old maid. After plans to elope with her lover to Australia and train as a nurse in London lead to nothing, she joins a traveling theater group and succumbs to the charms of the dark, passionate Italian Ciccio. This edition also contains pictures, personal notes, and other critical primary source material.

About the Author

D.H. Lawrence (1885-1930) was an English writer whose work often dealt with themes of human sexuality and suffered from censorship as a result. Since his death, he has come to be regarded as a pioneer of English modernism and one of the greatest writers of his generation. He is the author of Lady Chatterley's Lover, Sons and Lovers, and Women in Love.
