Selected by the Modern Library as one of the 100 best novels of all time
D.H. Lawrence's magnificent exploration of human sexuality in the days surrounding World War I. 'Let us hesitate no longer to announce that the sensual passions and mysteries are equally sacred with the spiritual mysteries and passions,' wrote D.H. Lawrence in Women In Love, a masterpiece that heralded the erotic consciousness of the twentieth century. Echoing elements of Lawrence's own life, Women In Love delves into the mysteries between men and women as two couples strive for love against a haunting backdrop of coal
mines, factories, and a beleaguered working class.
