The Brangwen family has lived in Nottinghamshire for generations. “The Rainbow” tells the story of the three generations of Brangwens who live at Marsh Farm from 1840 to the early 1900’s. In this book, D. H. Lawrence explored the impact of sexuality upon human relationships with such frankness that, shortly after its publication in 1915, it was brought to trial for obscenity.

D. H. Lawrence started 'The Sisters' in 1913, wrote four different versions and claimed to have discarded 'quite a thousand pages' before completing The Rainbow in 1915. Mark Kinkead-Weekes gives the composition history and collates the surviving states of the text to assess the damage done to Lawrence's great novel.From the Inside Flap:
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.?
