Pronounced obscene when it was first published in 1915, " The Rainbow" is the epic story of three generations of the Brangwens, a Midlands family. A visionary novel, considered to be one of Lawrence's finest, it explores the complex sexual and psychological relationships between men and women in an increasingly industrialized world. "Lives are separate, but life is continuous--it continues in the fresh start by the separate life in each generation," wrote F. R. Leavis. "No work, I think, has presented this perception as an imaginatively realized truth more compellingly than "The Rainbow.""

not one of my favourites - felt more like an academic study of femaleness and industrialism. Some of the most beautiful descriptions of nature that I have ever read, and some very steamy romantic encounters made it definitely a worthwhile experience.
