Bought this as a present for my younger brother, who is an English M.A He was thoroughly satisfied with it and said it came in very handy for revision and reference purposes Here s hoping he passes D Set In The Rural Midlands Of England, The Rainbow Revolves Around Three Generations Of Brangwens, A Family Deeply Involved With The Land And Noted For Their Strength And Vigour When Tom Brangwen Marries A Polish Widow, Lydia Lensky, And Adopts Her Daughter, Anna, As His Own, He Is Unprepared For The Conflict And Passion That Erupts Between Them Their Stories Continue In Women In Love Worth reading this in conjunction with Women in Love so that you get the complete stories of Ursula and Gudrun, the two sisters and the central characters of the two novels So much has been written about Lawrence and I am not intellectually competent enough to introduce any new thoughts on his work. Too slow for me Parts were good but was a bit bored with the book and couldn t finish it. Such a moving story and so much of then is true today Proving that at the very heart of us we are the same as those who went before.Would have given it five stars but the edition had not been very well proof read. Loved the cover Enjoyed the introduction which helped Fabulous descriptive writing if a little over the top at times A book should be something which is comfortable to read, with good typesetting and page layout This publication is none of these.Not everything can be reduced to speed and cost the art of good publishing should be given its due the pleasure of anticipation of the content a cover design which leads into the content and then the art of design print sitting well within its margins, headings at the head of a page, and a typeface which does not need specialist glasses to read. I thought this was a very insightful book in regards human nature and struggles within relationships I enjoyed it up until Ursula s story which I found rather gloomy and hard work.
