Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written during the most flourishing period of D. H. Lawrence's career, The Plumed Serpent is a novel of ritual and romance set in Mexico during the 1920s, a story both beautiful and strange.

Kate Leslie, an Irishwoman, is at once repelled and fascinated by the spell of Mexico, homesick and yet unable to leave. With the ancient rites of the lost god Quetzalcoatl, she marries Don Cipriano, an Indian, and becomes wedded not only to him but also to a history full of terror and blood, to a land without shadows or mist.

Review:

"Lawrence writes on rebirth and reflects on the ambience of Mexico and New Mexico in this 1926 novel of a woman whose passions inspire her to flee an unexciting husband." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"All of Mexico is here, evoked clearly with the fervor of things remembered out of impressions that filled the mind to bursting." Katherine Anne Porter

Synopsis:

The story of a European woman's self-annihilating plunge into the intrigues, passions, and pagan rituals of Mexico. Lawrence's mesmerizing and unsettling 1926 novel is his great work of the political imagination.
