The wife of D.H. Lawrence and the model for his major female figures - from Ursula in "The Rainbow" to Connie in "Lady Chatterley's Lover" - Frieda Lawrence has until now been seen only in her role as muse, mate and harridan. This book reassesses Frieda on her own terms, looking at her childhood in Germany, her early first marriage and painful experience of leaving her three young children, the eventful 18 years with D.H. Lawrence, her notorious love affairs, and her life after Lawrence's death in 1930. As well as giving a rich impression of the historical and social context of the time - including friendships with Katherine Mansfield, the Huxleys, Stravinsky and Chaplin - Rosie Jackson discusses Frieda's politics, pleasures and ideas about men, women and sexuality. The book also includes a republication of Frieda's memoirs of her life with Lawrence - "Not I, But the Wind" - and extracts from her letters and autobiographical writings.
