Synopsis

D.H. Lawrence’s Women in Love, the sequel to The Rainbow (1915), was published in 1920. However, these novels, two of the author’s greatest, were initially conceived as a single work. Women in Love continues The Rainbow’s story of the Brangwen family, focusing namely on the lives and loves of sisters Ursula and Gudren. Urusula, a teacher, becomes romantically involved with Rupert Birkin, a school inspector with some unconventional ideas and attitudes; Gurdren, an artist, becomes involved with Gerald Crich, an industrialist and coal mine heir. Drawn together by a number of incidents, all four yearn for fulfillment, but struggle to avoid destruction in the process. Getting Women in Love published proved to be a challenge following The Rainbow’s obscenity trial, which resulted in the novel’s being unavailable in the UK for over a decade after. Unsurprisingly, Methuen & Co., publisher of The Rainbow, backed out of publishing Women in Love. But after three long years of delays and extensive revisions, Thomas Seltzer published Women in Love in New York City. Women in Love is ranked 49th on Modern Library’s “100 Best” English-language novels of the 20th century; The Rainbow is ranked 48th.

About Hawkridge Books

Visit our website at www.hawkridge.co.ukHawkridge Books – quality books with a quality service. Fine and antiquarian books bought and sold, specialising in natural history, particularly ornithology, but also including books on a wide range of interesting subjects. Hawkridge Books is owned and run by Irene and Joe Tierney; this means that customers are provided with a personal service and given individual attention. We have been in the book business for over 20 years and ran a bookshop in the Peak District village of Castleton for 15 years. The shop was closed in 2010 and we moved our best stock to our home in Broomhill, Sheffield. The current stock runs to some 7,000 volumes. Although we specialise in ornithology, where we have 1100 volumes, and natural history (700 volumes), we have books in all subjects. For example, we have 700 books published by the Folio Society, 400 history books, and a similar number on topography, including 200 books on Derbyshire. All our books are selected to ensure that they are in the best condition and any faults are mentioned.
