Set in the rural midlands of England, The Rainbow revolves around three generations of the Brangwen family over a period of more than sixty years, setting them against the emergence of modern England. When Tom Brangwen marries a Polish widow and adopts her daughter as his own, he is unprepared for the conflict and passion that erupt. Suffused with biblical imagery, The Rainbow addresses searching human issues in a setting of precise and vivid detail.

Book Description:

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.

From the Inside Flap:

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."

Book Description Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. With its frank portrayal of human passion and sexual desire, D.H. Lawrence s The Rainbow was banned as obscene in Britain shortly after first publication. This Penguin Classics edition is edited with an introduction by James Wood.Set in the rural Midlands, The Rainbow chronicles the lives of three generations of the Brangwen family over a period of more than 60 years, setting them against the emergence of modern England. When Tom Brangwen marries a Polish widow, Lydia Lensky, and adopts her daughter Anna as his own, he is unprepared for the conflict and passion that erupts between them. All are seeking individual fulfilment, but it is Ursula, Anne s spirited daughter, who in her search for self-knowedge, becomes the focus of Lawrence s examination of relationships and the conflicts they bring, and the inextricable mingling of the physical and the spiritual. Suffused with Biblical imagery, The Rainbow addresses searching human issues in a setting of precise and vivid detail.In his introduction James Wood discusses Lawrence s writing style and the tensions and themes of The Rainbow. This Penguin edition reproduces the Cambridge text, which provides a text as close as possible to Lawrence s original. It also includes suggested further reading, a fragment of The Sisters II from his first draft, and chronologies of Lawrence s life and of The Rainbow s Brangwen family.D.H. Lawrence (1885-1930), English novelist, storywriter, critic, poet and painter, one of the greatest figures in 20th-century English literature.

His last novel, Lady Chatterley s Lover, was published in 1928, but banned in England and America.If you enjoyed The Rainbow, you might like Lawrence s Women in Love, also available in Penguin Classics. A brave and important book, passionate and wildly ambitious Independent on Sunday. Seller Inventory # APG9780141441382
