A controversial classic from D.H. Lawrence, the author of Lady Chatterley's Lover .

Lush with religious and metaphysical imagery, this is the story of three generations of the Brangwen family, set against the decline of their rural English existence in the face of industrialization. The novel also treats the most taboo subject of its time, peering intimately into a family's sexual mores, exposing the dynamics of marriage and physical love as a sexual tug-of-war that is both formidable and inescapable. Visionary and prophetic, The Rainbow was banned in England after its publication in 1915 and was long available in the U.S. only in an expurgated edition.

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.
