Book Club reads “Women in Love”
The September read for the book club is “Women in Love” by D. H. Lawrence.
Lawrence’s finest, most mature novel initially met with disgust and incomprehension. In the love affairs of two sisters, Ursula with Rupert and Gudrun with Gerald, critics could only see a sorry tale of sexual depravity and philosophical obscurity. Women in Love is, however, a profound response to a whole cultural crisis. The ‘progress’ of the modern industrialized world had led to the carnage of the First World War.
