From Library Journal
The published editions of Women in Love , probably Lawrence's greatest novel, have always been remarkably corrupt due to a lengthy, complex process of revision and transcription, a threatened libel suit, and numerous unauthorized bowdlerizations. The editors of this new Cambridge Edition have labored scrupulously to produce an authoritative text. What emerges, if not dramatically different, is fresher and more immediate. The introduction provides a valuable history of the novel's composition, revision, publication, and reception, and though the elaborate textual apparatus is strictly for advanced students of bibliography, the notes are splendid. Lawrence's 1919 Foreword and two early discarded chapters are also included. The recovery of a modern classic. Keith Cushman, Univ. of North Carolina, Greensboro

The relationship of four lovers and their beliefs are examined against the brutal backdrop of a small mining town. Maureen O'Brien splendidly creates the tone and tension of each character, dramatically accentuating the novel's theme of the destructive nature of relationships. The narration proves equally expressive, and O'Brien's voice has an entrancing lilt which complements each phrase. Her sensitive, fluid performance reflects the evolving mood of the work. The reading transports the listener to the world of the text with graceful dignity which unlocks the power of this enlightened work. s.l.d. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
A sequel to Lawrence's earlier The Rainbow (1915), Women in Love continues the story of the Brangwen sisters in the coal-mining town of Beldover. Based in part on Lawrence's own stormy marriage to German aristocrat Frieda von Richthofen, the tale is charged with intense feelings and psychological insights.
