This edition includes 10 illustrations. Though the 1920s were a period of moral laxity and greater social freedoms, English writer D.H. Lawrence nonetheless shocked and horrified readers with his sequel to the sexually explicit 1915 novel The Rainbow, which was banned in the UK for a time. Published five years later, Women in Love continues the story of two sisters in a coal mining town, a setting likely inspired by Lawrence’s own working-class origins. The author explores the relationships which exist within the confines of these insulated but caste-particular confines – and especially between the sisters’ lovers, Rupert Birkin and Gerard Crich.
