about this book

Set in a small village in the English countryside, this is the story of a secluded, sensitive rector's daughter who yearns for meaning beyond the life, which she seems doomed. The Virgin and the Gypsy was discovered in France after Lawrence's death in 1930. Immediately recognized as a masterpiece in which Lawrence had distilled and purified his ideas about sexuality and morality, the book has become a classic and is one of Lawrence's most electrifying short novels.
