Synopsis:
“An analytical study of sexual depravity” and “an epic of vice” were two of the critical expressions which greeted the publication of Women in Love. Yet Lawrence regarded this novel as his best book and F. R. Leavis considered it Lawrence’s supreme masterpiece.

The novel tells of the relationships of two sisters, Ursula and Gudrun, who live in a Midland colliery town in the years before the First World War. Ursula falls in love with Birkin (a thinly disguised portrait of Lawrence himself) and Gudrun has an intense but tragic affair with Gerald, the son of a local colliery owner.

This book is a sequel to The Rainbow, and contains some of the clearest statements of Lawrence’s beliefs. It contains much philosophical discussion and descriptions of the characters’ emotional states. and unconscious drives, and many of the ideas arc expressed through elaborate symbolism. The characters and relationships are probably based on those of Lawrence and his wife Frieda, John Middleton Murry and Katherine Mansfield.
