I read Women in Love first and became enthralled with the character of Ursula, and I think this enhanced my enjoyment of The Rainbow The Brangwen family history starts in the mid 19th century with young Tom Brangwen Tom falls in love with and marries a polish immigrant, Lydia, who already has a daughter, Anna, from a previous relationship Anna is adopted by Tom an Set In The Rural Midlands Of England, The Rainbow Revolves Around Three Generations Of The Brangwens, A Strong, Vigorous Family, Deeply Involved With The Land When Tom Brangwen Marries A Polish Widow,Lydia Lensky, And Adopts Her Daughter Anna As His Own, He Is Unprepared For The Conflict And Passion That Erupts Between Them All Are Seeking Individual Fulfilment, But It Is Ursula, Anna S Spirited Daughter, Who, In Search For Self Knowledge, Rejects The Conventional Role Of Womanhood She turned, and saw a great white moon looking at her over the hill And her breast opened to it, she was cleaved like a transparent jewel to its light She stood filled with the moon, offering herself Her two breasts opened to make way for it, her body opened wide like a quivering anemone, a soft, dilated invitation touched by the moon268 Re reading The Rainbow after so many years has been like a shattering force of nature A rampant flood that has washed me anew, a piercing light that has blinded my eyes but stimulated my senses bringing back all the reasons that make of D.
H Lawrence one of my favorite writers of all times His falling from grace within the literary circles in recent years led me to take this novel with wariness and apprehension, lest I would be obliged to dethrone one the literary idols of my teenage days There was no need for fre Roy G Biv, the Birds and the Bees4.
4 stars This D.
H Lawrence novel, published in 1915, was almost immediately banned as obscene and the first printing of over 1,000 copies were seized and burned It was not available for purchase in Britain for the next 11 years No doubt, this book treated sexual desire as candidly as most books theretofore published While it is relatively mild by today s standards over a century out, it handled sensuality in a way that is true to life as a natural and spiritual force in humans, the passion to consummate the desire for intimacy and the love of another Frankly, this is one of the only literary novels that animated my appetite for affections, with passages such as His body trembled as he held her He loved her till he felt his heart and all his veins would burst and flood her with his hot, healing blood H Farty proto fascist flapdoodle served up with a twist of hippy bollocks and garnished with enough of a patina of feminist sympathy for it to goosestep rapidly under some people s radar Yes DH Lawrence could write Somebody should have stopped him though.
Reread 3 11 17I listened to The Rainbow read by Maureen O Brien on audible and have come to like the story on the second read The publication of the book is quite an accomplishment in 1915 and met with controversy mostly about the discussion of sex, premarital sex, and lesbianism It is nothing surprising today and could probably be played on network television with very little editing of the content Today, the roles of women bring controversy to the reader but it must be remembered that the setting takes place over one hundred and thirty years ago Much has changed since then, although teaching middle school remains much the same, and the reader needs to remember the period it was written in and the period writte If you re into stuff like this, you can read the full review.
Working Class Fiction The Rainbow by D H Lawrence original Review, 2002 06 08 Lawrence is uneven, but of the four novels I ve read by him, The Rainbow is the best I read Sons and Lovers at the British Council I loved it at 15, but loved it far less 2 years later I liked Lady Chatterley s Lover than I thought I would, but that maybe because of all the scorn I d heard poured on it before I read the book I read The Rainbow before I read Women in Love , and found the first of the diptych far superior to the second Women in Love often seemed to me to read like Lawrence at his overblown, blood flowing, loin thrusting worst.
The situation was almost ridiculous But do you love him asked Dorothy It isn t a question of loving him, said Ursula I love him well enough certainly than I love anybody else in the world And I shall never love anybody else the same again We have had the flower of each other But I don t care about love I don t value it I don t care whether I love or whether I don t, whether I have love or whether I haven t What is it to me And she shrugged her shoulders in fierce, angry contempt.
Dorothy pondered, rather angry and afraid Then what do you care about she asked, exasperated I don t know, said Ursula But something impersonal Love love what does it mean what does it amount to So much personal gratification It doesn t lead anywhere It isn t supposed to lead anywhere, is it said Dorothy, satirically I thought it was the one thing which is an end in itself When I think of epic masterpiece Nowhere else within the broad realm of literature have I come across such beauteous turns of phrase devoted to exploring the many dimensions of sexual desire In fact, I cannot cease to wonder how Lawrence manages to convey the intensity and intimacy of a kiss and a caress so effectually without deploying any explicit terms His men and women are often capricious creatures of instinct and restless, stubborn adherents of their inexorable self will which causes them to be in conflict even if tenuously with the world circumscribing them And carnal love emerges as the only authentic religious force capable of exalting the unsatisfied, solitary halves to a state of spiritual communion and fulfillment His pride was bolstered up, his blood ran once in pride But there was no core to him as a distinct male he had no core His triumphant, flaming, overweenin
