9780140182187: The Rainbow (Twentieth Century Classics)

David Herbert Richards Lawrence (11 September 1885 – 2 March 1930) was an English novelist, poet, playwright, essayist, literary critic and painter who published as D. H. Lawrence. His collected works represent an extended reflection upon the dehumanising effects of modernity and industrialisation. In them, Lawrence confronts issues relating to emotional health and vitality, spontaneity, and instinct. -wikipedia

Product Description:

The novel follows three generations of the Brangwen family living in Nottinghamshire, focusing on relations and sexual dynamics of the characters. The Rainbow represents Lawrence's frank treatment of sexual desire and the power it plays within relationships as a natural and even spiritual force of life, and explores the topic of female homosexuality.

Review:

"Lawrence is the most Dostoevskian of English novelists, in whose best work conflicting ideological positions are brought into play and set up against each other in dialogue that is never simply or finally resolved." -David Lodge
