About This Item

UK: BCA, 1980. Hardcover. Very Good/Good. 6" x 9.25. H/B. 861 pages, condition is very good. Complete and Unabridged. D. H. Lawrence is one of the most celebrated authors of the twentieth century. Love - passionate and possessive, natural and unnatural - is his preoccupation, with which he shocked the world in books now established as great literary masterpieces. Women in Love is the novel that Lawrence himself considered his best. It is the story of two sisters, Ursula and Gudrun, who live and teach in a Midlands colliery town. Ursula falls in love with Rupert Birkin, the school inspector, and Gudrun has a feverish affair with his friend Gerald Crich, son of the local colliery owner. The conflicts and passions of the young quartet lead, inevitably, to tragedy. In the shorter novels Lawrence handles with great precision and clarity those turbulent themes that occur throughout his work. In The Ladybird an exquisite English beauty is torn between duty to her predictable English husband and passion for a Bohemian count, and The Captain's Doll is the compelling story of a German countess who falls under the spell of an enigmatic Scottish soldier. The Rainbow tells of the Brangwens, a vigorous and strong-willed family of farmers who have been established for generations in the Midlands. Tom Brangwen marries Lydia, a Polish widow whose very foreignness both violently attracts and repels him. This powerful novel was condemned as obscene when it was first published, but now both The Rainbow and Women in Love are recognized as his greatest novels. No writer has ever dealt more honestly and accurately with the obsessive emotions that inspire, inflame and destroy human beings. In all his novels it is the uncompromising quest for the truth about human relationships that makes the writings of D. H. Lawrence so unforgettable.
