Women in Love

by D.H. Lawrence


In the love affairs of two sisters, Ursula with Rupert, and Gudrun with Gerald, critics could only see a sorry tale of sexual depravity and philosophical obscurity. Women in Love is, however, a profound response to a whole cultural crisis. The ‘progress’ of the modern industrialised world had led to the carnage of the First World War.

“But better die than live mechanically a life that is a repetition of repetitions.”

D.H. Lawrence, Women in Love
