Description - The First Women in Love by D. H. Lawrence
"Oneworld Classics" will include the greatest masterpieces of all time, from every literature and genre and will also redefine and enrich the classics canon by promoting unjustly neglected works of enduring significance. This text is the famous 'first' "Women In Love", Lawrence's preferred and unexurgated version, which was rejected by every publisher who saw it because of the banning of "The Rainbow" in 1915. More positive in tone than the revised version published later, with different central relationships and a radically different ending, it is now viewed by many as his greatest work. Seen by Lawrence as his most successful book, but subject to the initial prudery and incomprehension that met most of his fiction, "Women in Love" charts the regenerative and destructive aspects of human passion as Ursula and Gudrun Brangwen - who first appeared in "The Rainbow" - conduct relationships with Gerald Crich and Rupert Birkin. Set against a backdrop of a world consuming itself in war, the novel creates an instructive vision of humanity's poignant dance with life and death.
