Review Text

Lawrence's finest book and still not sufficiently recognized as one of the crowning achievements of 20th century fiction. To describe it as an early feminist work would be to some extent true but it is a limiting label. Women in Love is a magnificent study of relationships: between men and men; women and women; and men and women, especially in marriage. It is also a hymn to the power of landscape; and to tenderness in human beings, all intertwined with the necessity of 'finding oneself'. Lawrence himself considered this his best book. Written during World War I but not published until 1920 (because of the suppression of its predecessor, The Rainbow, for obscenity), it takes up the story of the sisters Gudrun and Ursula Brangwen and through them and their lovers dramatizes Lawrence's own beliefs about physical and spiritual love and the destructive pressures of convention.
