Women in Love by D.H. Lawrence
A sequel to his earlier novel The Rainbow, this novel of D.H Lawrence again, makes a daring departure from traditional English novels. This controversial novel is set in the British society during the First World war and it depicts the tragic love live of the Brangwen sisters, Ursula and Gudrun.
Gudrun is an artist who falls into a violent, destructive relationship with the industialist Gerald Crishy. In contrast is the love between Ursula and Rupert Birkin, an intellectual. How these couples are constantly in a struggle within themselves, with each other and all the constrints in life forms the story. The novel ends, just as the fierce passion of Gerald for Dudrun, with the suicide of Gerald. In its liberal description on sexuality and other daring topics, the novel in deed presents the life, character and environment in society in the new age.
