Women In Love, the book Lawrence considered his best, was written during World War I, and while that conflict is never mentioned in the novel, a sense of background danger, of lurking catastrophe, continually informs its drama of two couples dynamically engaged in a struggle with themselves, with each other, and with life's intractable limitations. Lawrence was a powerful, prophetic writer, but in addition he brought such delicacy to his treatment of the human and natural worlds that E. M. Forster's claim that he was the greatest imaginative novelist of our generation does him too little justice rather than too much.

Women In Love, the book Lawrence considered his best, was written during World War I, and while that conflict is never mentioned in the novel, a sense of background danger, of lurking catastrophe, continually informs its drama of two couples dynamically engaged in a struggle with themselves, with each other, and with life's intractable limitations.

Annotation:
D. H. Lawrence considered WOMEN IN LOVE, his sequel to THE RAINBOW, to be his best novel. It traces the stories of Ursula and Gudrun Brangwen, particularly their romantic entanglements and dilemmas. Ursula marries Rupert Birkin--Lawrence's alter ego--a thoroughly modern and enlightened young man who believes in ideal love based on passion, equality, and mutual respect. Gudrun falls for Gerald Crich, a formidably competent businessman, owner of the local mine. Gerald is a weak, possessive reactionary who is unable to work out his feelings for Gudrun, and who, when Rupert offers his friendship--the kind of profound male friendship that Lawrence considered necessary to a man's life--rejects it. Lawrence's heavily symbolic story is an overt statement of his beliefs about men and women in modern society. Written in 1916, it didn't find a publisher until 1920, and was considered by many readers and reviewers to be depraved. Lawrence attributed much of the despair and bitterness of the novel to the travails of World War I, a war to which he was violently opposed.
Author Bio
D. H. Lawrence
Lawrence was the son of an uneducated miner and a genteel, resentful mother who wanted better lives for her children. He educated himself through scholarships and worked as an elementary schoolteacher from 1902 to 1906. He began publishing poetry in the "English Review" in 1909, and in 1910 published his first short story and a novel. Two years later, he fell in love with Frieda von Richthofen, the German wife of a Nottingham French professor, and fled to Germany with her, where they were married in 1914 after her divorce. When World War I broke out, they returned to England. Violently opposed to the war, Lawrence left England for good when it was over and lived the rest of his life in Italy, Australia, Mexico, and the south of France, where he finally succumbed to tuberculosis at the age of 44. In addition to novels, Lawrence in his brief life wrote dozens of short stories; vivid and visionary poems; criticism; and several books about his extensive travels. Lawrence's novels were considered revolutionary in their time because of their intimate and unsparing exploration of human life and sexuality. "The Rainbow" was suppressed for indecency in 1915, and "Lady Chatterly's Lover" was banned in 1928.

Praise

New York Review of Books
"His masterpiece...'Women in Love', is an astonishing work that moves on several levels...Lawrence compels us to admit that we live less finely than we should, whatever we are." - Noel Annan
