D.H. Lawrence’s Women in Love, the sequel to The Rainbow (1915), was published in 1920. However, these novels, two of the author’s greatest, were initially conceived as a single work. Women in Love continues The Rainbow’s story of the Brangwen family, focusing namely on the lives and loves of sisters Ursula and Gudren. Urusula, a teacher, becomes romantically involved with Rupert Birkin, a school inspector with some unconventional ideas and attitudes; Gurdren, an artist, becomes involved with Gerald Crich, an industrialist and coal mine heir. Drawn together by a number of incidents, all four yearn for fulfillment, but struggle to avoid destruction in the process. Getting Women in Love published proved to be a challenge following The Rainbow’s obscenity trial, which resulted in the novel’s being unavailable in the UK for over a decade after. Unsurprisingly, Methuen & Co., publisher of The Rainbow, backed out of publishing Women in Love. But after three long years of delays and extensive revisions, Thomas Seltzer published Women in Love in New York City. Women in Love is ranked 49th on Modern Library’s “100 Best” English-language novels of the 20th century; The Rainbow is ranked 48th.

About More Than Words Inc.

More Than Words empowers youth who are in foster care, court-involved, homeless or out of school to take charge of their lives by taking charge of a business. MTW believes that when system-involved youth are challenged with authentic and increasing responsibilities in a business setting, and are given high expectations and a culture of support, they can and will address personal barriers to success, create concrete action plans for their lives, and become contributing members of society. More Than Words began as an online bookselling training program for youth in DCF custody in 2004 and opened its vibrant bookstore on Moody St in Waltham in 2005 and added its Starbucks coffee bar in 2008. MTW replicated its model in the South End of Boston in 2011, thereby doubling the number of youth served annually.
