Women in Love is a novel by British author D. H. Lawrence published in 1920. It is a sequel to his earlier novel The Rainbow (1915), and follows the continuing loves and lives of the Brangwen sisters, Gudrun and Ursula. Gudrun Brangwen, an artist, pursues a destructive relationship with Gerald Crich, an industrialist. Lawrence contrasts this pair with the love that develops between Ursula and Rupert Birkin, an alienated intellectual who articulates many opinions associated with the author. The emotional relationships thus established are given further depth and tension by an intense psychological and physical attraction between Gerald and Rupert. The novel ranges over the whole of British society before the time of the First World War and eventually ends high up in the snows of the Tyrolean Alps. David Herbert Lawrence (11 September 1885 – 2 March 1930) was an English novelist, poet, playwright, essayist, literary critic and painter who published as D. H. Lawrence. His collected works represent an extended reflection upon the dehumanising effects of modernity and industrialisation. In them, Lawrence confronts issues relating to emotional health and vitality, spontaneity, and instinct.

The Rainbow follows several members of a family through different generations. They live on a farm in the East Midlands of England. There was something inc...
Women in Love is a novel about, well, some women who are in love.Of course, that's not everything, but it's pretty close. And anyway, if you're reading this you're probably not reading it for the plot. The characters have a complex inner life and think a lot about death and apocalypse and the meanin...
This is not just because the narrator talks too fast and is really hard to understand, it's also because I'm just too old for this book. In my idealistic youth I would have found the ramblings of these people inspiring but now I'm bored. They go on and on about how the world is awful and I just ha...
I can't see the point of DH Lawrence in this day and age and there will be no more forays into re-reading this dated stuff for me. Somethings do not stand the test of time.
I couldn't finish this book, it was terrible! Very unlikeable characters.
