Book Blurb

The Brangwen sisters are now teachers in Beldover, a small town dominated by the great colliery that seems to express the full dehumanizing ugliness of industrialization. Here Ursula falls in love with Birkin, in some way s a self-portrait of Lawrence, while Gudrun has a tragic and demonic affair with Gerald, son of the colliery owner. 

Edited with an Introduction and Notes by Charles Ross

Editorial Review(s)

"His masterpiece....An astonishing work that moves on several levels....Lawrence compels us to admit that we live less finely than we should, whatever we are." —The New York Review of Books
