It is a sequel to his novel ''The Rainbow'' (1915), and follows the continuing loves and lives of the sisters Gudrun and Ursula Brangwen. Gudrun Brangwen, an artist, pursues a destructive relationship with Gerald Crich, an industrialist. Lawrence contrasts this pair with the love that develops between Ursula and Rupert Birkin, an alienated intellectual who articulates many opinions that are associated with the author. The emotional relationships thus established are given further depth and tension by an intense psychological and physical attraction between Gerald and Rupert. The novel ranges over the whole of British society before the time of the FirstWorldWar and eventually ends high up in the snows of the Tyrolean Alps.
