The Trespasser, D. H. Lawrence’s second novel, foreshadowed the passion of Lady Chatterley’s Lover.

Helena Verden, a young woman in her late twenties, and Siegmund MacNair, her violin teacher, are in love. But there is more than one obstacle on their road to happiness. Siegmund is a married man with children, and Helena is full of inhibitions. They spend a week together on the Isle of Wight, their passion remaining unrequited. When they return to London, Siegmund faces a deadlock. Tormented by his family’s bitter reproaches, he is nonetheless unable to desert them for Helena. His solution to his dilemma turns a woman’s longing for love into tragedy.

Lawrence based his novel on the true-life experiences of his friend Helen Corke, as revealed in her diaries.

    " To get the most out of this book you need to slow the bleep down but when you do that you get little moments in your mind that are perfect... don't race to finish this book! Immerse yourself in it, feel yourself in its images. Best meditation. "

About the Author

David Herbert Lawrence (1885–1930), novelist, short-story writer, poet, critic, playwright, and essayist, was one of the most important and controversial figures of twentieth-century English literature. His works confront the dehumanizing effects of modernity and industrialization and are notable for their passionate intensity and for a sensuality that centers on the erotic. Though his opinions earned him enemies, persecution, and censorship during his lifetime, he is now recognized as an artistic visionary.
