A powerful and engrossing tale of extremes and extremists, D. H. Lawrence’s Women in Love follows the passionate relationships of two sisters, Gudrun and Ursula Brangwen, with their respective lovers, the ominous Gerald Crich and the charismatic but fragile Rupert Birkin. Beginning in a narrow-minded English colliery town and culminating amidst the ice and snow of the Alps, the abortive alliance between the two men and the couples’ affairs are played out against the derangement of industrialism and the need to find new ways of living and better ways of dying.

A masterpiece that heralded the erotic consciousness of the twentieth century, Lawrence considered Women in Love his best novel, exploring through it his belief that love is “the great creative process.”

    " a beautifully written book. A book that makes you both think and feel deeply. "

    " Lawrence's characters are well-developed psychologically, especially the males, which makes them interesting to read about. I preferred this novel to Lady Chatterly's Lover which I read a few years later and which gets all the hype. As a woman, it was interesting and amusing to read about women and sexuality from a male's perspective; all the stuff about 'penis envy' and the revered phallus was very new to me. "

    " I fell in love with D.H. Lawrence after this novel. Like most loves, I suppose, I would like less of him after "Sons and Lovers" and "Lady Chatterley," but still "Women in Love" takes the reader to great places and makes him/her eavesdrop on pretty interesting conversations. "

    " Lawrence is writing philosophy so reading him is sometimes exhausting and to be done little by little. The chapters are almost a series of self-contained illustrations of ideas although there are characters (Ursula and Gudrun Brangwen, again) and a story (love, or course). For example, how to have a conversation with an acquaintance on the train in which one says all the things one ordinarily would not say; how loving one's sister and hating her are pretty much the same thing; whether the best way to be a person is to subsume oneself in another person or remain coherent and unmixed; the wonderfulness of thick, brightly colored silk stockings; and, finally, whether or not naked wrestling with a friend makes one gay.
