Review:
D. H. Lawrence started 'The Sisters' in 1913, wrote four different versions and claimed to have discarded 'quite a thousand pages' before completing The Rainbow in 1915. Mark Kinkead-Weekes gives the composition history and collates the surviving states of the text to assess the damage done to Lawrence's great novel.

Book Description

Review:
Pronounced obscene when it was first published in 1915, The Rainbow is the epic story of three generations of the Brangwens, a Midlands family. A visionary novel, considered to be one of Lawrence?s finest, it explores the complex sexual and psychological relationships between men and women in an increasingly industrialized world. ?Lives are separate, but life is continuous?it continues in the fresh start by the separate life in each generation,? wrote F. R. Leavis. ?No work, I think, has presented this perception as an imaginatively realized truth more compellingly than The Rainbow.?
