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.-

“[Lawrence] had that quality of genius which sucks out of ordinary experience essences strange or unknown to men.” —Anaïs Nin
