Nellie March and Jill Banford manage an ailing Berkshire farm at the time of the First World War, a task which is made all the more complicated by the frequent rampages of a local fox through their chicken coop. When a young soldier turns up and begins to wrest control of the farm from their grasp by asserting his own ideas as to its management, the two women must find ways to react to this new fox in their midst.A potent study of the question of power and authority, as well as a realistic portrayal of wartime rural England, "The Fox" showcases Lawrence's inimitable gift for psychological observation and dramatic description.

Author Biography - D. H. Lawrence
D.H. Lawrence (1885-1930) was an English writer whose work often dealt with the theme of human sexuality, and suffered from censorship. At the time of his death, Lawrence was seen by many as little more than a pornographer, but subsequently he has come to be regarded as a pioneer of English modernism, and one of the greatest writers of his generation.
