Two of D. H. Lawrence’s most renowned novels – now with new packages and new introductions

Widely regarded as D. H. Lawrence’s greatest novel, Women in Love continues where The Rainbow left off, with the third generation of the Brangwens. Focusing on Ursula Brangwen and her sister Gudrun’s relationships-the former with a school inspector and the latter with an industrialist and then a sculptor-Women in Love is a powerful, sexually explicit depiction of the destructiveness of human relations.

“His masterpiece. . . . An astonishing work that moves on several levels. . . . Lawrence compels us to admit that we live less finely than we should, whatever we are.”
