In Women In Love, D. H. Lawrence continues the story of Gundrun and Ursula Brangwen, first introduced in The Rainbow. In the course of their daily lives, the sisters meet and develop relationships with Gerald Crich and Rupert Birkin. As affairs between the couples deepen, they all must navigate the changing moral guidelines of post-war English society, while their pursuit of personal and physical fulfillment challenges the social strictures of their parents’ generation and ends with devastating consequences.
Women in Love is the sequel to The Rainbow, D.H. Lawrence’s first Brangwen family novel. Released to commercial success in 1920, the novel challenged typical depictions of relationships between men and women. Adapted for film in 1960, Women in Love actress Glenda Jackson was awarded an Academy Award for her portrayal of Gudrun Brangwen.
