This edition of Women in Love clears the text of literally thousands of accumulated errors allowing its readers to read and understand the novelist's work as Lawrence himself created it. The introduction gives a full history of the novel's composition, revision, publication and reception, and notes explain allusions and references.From the Publisher:
D.H. Lawrence's magnificent exploration of human sexuality in the days surrounding World War I.
"Let us hesitate no longer to announce that the sensual passions and mysteries are equally sacred with the spiritual mysteries and passions," wrote D.H. Lawrence in Women In Love, a masterpiece that heralded the erotic consciousness of the twentieth century. Echoing elements of Lawrence's own life, Women In Love delves into the mysteries between men and women as two couples strive for love against a haunting backdrop of coal mines, factories, and a beleaguered working class.
New introduction by Louis Menand.
