A powerful and engrossing tale of extremes and extremists, D. H. Lawrence's Women in Love follows the passionate relationships of two sisters, Gudrun and Ursula Brangwen, with their respective lovers, the ominous Gerald Crich and the charismatic but fragile Rupert Birkin. Beginning in a narrow-minded English colliery town and culminating amidst the ice and snow of the Alps, the abortive alliance between the two men and the couples' affairs are played out against the derangements of industrialism and the need to find new ways of living and better ways of dying.
A masterpiece that heralded the erotic consciousness of the 20th century, Lawrence considered Women in Love his best novel, exploring through it his belief that love is "the great creative process".
"His masterpiece.... An astonishing work that moves on several levels.... Lawrence compels us to admit that we live less finely than we should, whatever we are." (The New York Review of Books)

wonderfully animated performance
Here a classic work that everybody believes they know is given a zesty and poignant performance that makes the complex intertwining relationships both enlivened and distinct
There is the feel of Virginia Woolf early novel Night and Day about it but really it stands in much murkier water
Herminie....is both a monster and a delight.
Oh for such luxury...
One of the best audio performances in my collection
Good Reading of a Classic
