The physical passions and psychological needs of three generations of Brangwens, a family of farmers and craftsmen in Nottinghamshire, are explored in this intensely sexual, romantic and erotic novel. Although suppressed as obscene in 1915, the beauty and lyricism of the language make it uniquely palatable. AVAILABLE ON CASSETTE ONLY.
…an excellent way to acquaint oneself with Lawrence’s often overwrought prose. Gibson deserves kudos for her rich and consistent rendering of this sprawling mass…and makes the book accessible to anyone willing to take the time to hear her out.
