Publisher's Summary

"Let us hesitate no longer to announce that the sensual passions and mysteries are equally sacred with the spiritual mysteries and passions," wrote D.H. Lawrence in Women in Love, his masterpiece heralding the erotic consciousness of the twentieth century. Lawrence explores love, sex, passion, and marriage through the eyes of two sisters. Gudrun and Ursula Brangwen are the two intelligent, incisive, and observant sisters whose temperamental differences spark an ongoing debate regarding their society and their inner lives. The two very different sisters pursue thrilling, torrid affairs, but their search for more mature emotional relationships reveals some startling information about themselves as well as their lovers, Rupert Birkin and Gerald Crich.
Women in Love delves into the mysteries between men and women as these two couples strive for love against a haunting World War I backdrop of coal mines, factories, and a beleaguered working class.

Facinating unsettling view male and female

More mature but more cynical view of the relationship between men and women. A little difficult to get into because of the ironic tone and the more unpleasant characters but very rewarding as we come to know both the men and women better. The narrator is very good and seems to understand the central women characters. Brilliant prose. Disturbing but thought-provoking ending.

Emotional intensity

I am a huge fan of Lawrence. This book was tough to read due to the emotional intensity, but I couldn't stop. Engrossing. I was addicted to the story and of course the characters. The exquisitely beautiful language often juxtaposed uncomfortably with desperate human situations.
