H. Lawrence&&L/B&&R was a master craftsman and profound thinker whose celebration of sexuality in an over-intellectualized world opened the door to that topic for countless writers after him.&&LBR&&R&&LBR&&RPerhaps his finest novel, &&LI&&RWomen in Love&&L/I&&R (1920) continues the story of two sisters, Ursula and Gudrun Brangwen, who first appeared in Lawrence’s novel &&LI&&RThe Rainbow&&L/I&&R (1915).   The story contrasts the passionate love affairs of Ursula and Rupert Birkin, a character often seen as a self-portrait of Lawrence, with that of Gudrun and Gerald Crich, an icily handsome mining industrialist. Birkin, an introspective misanthrope, struggles to reconcile his metaphysical drive for self-fulfillment with Ursula’s practical view of sentimental passion. As they fight their way through to a mutually satisfying relationship—and eventual marriage—Gudrun and Crich’s sadomasochistic love affair careens toward a disastrous conclusion. &&LBR&&R&&LBR&&RA dark, disturbing, yet beautiful exploration of love in an increasingly violent and destructive world, Women in Love nevertheless holds out the hope of individual and collective rebirth through human intensity and passion. &&LBR&&R&&L/DIV&&R&&LDIV&&R&&LDIV&&R&&LB&&RNorman Loftis&&L/B&&R is a poet, novelist, essayist, philosopher, and filmmaker.
