Overview

A collection of three novellas that display D. H. Lawrence’s brilliant and insightful evocation of human relationships – both tender and cruel – and the devastating results of war 

In The Fox, two young women living on a small farm during the First World War find their solitary life interrupted. As a fox preys on their poultry, a human predator has the women in his sights. The Captain’s Doll explores the complex relationship between a German countess and a married Scottish soldier in occupied Germany, while in The Ladybird a wounded prisoner of war has a disturbing influence on the Englishwoman who visits him in hospital.
