D.H. Lawrence was a versatile English author who made great strides in the Modernist literary movement of the twentieth century. His poetry was prolific, sometimes applying new forms of imagery and line structure that stood out among the work from his era. Yet his novels remain his most lasting contributions and Women in Love is perhaps his greatest achievement. First published in 1920, it is a sequel to his earlier work, The Rainbow, taking for its subject the adult lives of the Brangwen sisters who reside in England. They develop relationships with two men in their town, and ultimately their dialogue and interactions become a backdrop for explorations of sexuality, politics, society, and gender. Like most of Lawrence’s novels, Women in Love met major controversy for its sexual content. Literary critics, however, elevated the work as one of the best from the era. It is still consistently ranked one of the best novels ever written. Such praise continues in this illustrated edition by the Easton Press. They name it as one of the Great Books of the Twentieth Century. Paired with the text are Richard Miller’s illustrations, making it a richly adorned and engaging representation of the text.
