This book is so extra. ( )
  jaydenmccomiskie | Sep 27, 2021 |
I've sat on this one for a couple of days, because I honestly don't know what to rate it at, and what to think of it. So, bear with me as I argue myself into some sort of rating here.

The first thing that I have to point out is, the language and actual writing here is quite beautiful. Especially considering it's a book that's much more tell than show. We're inside the characters' heads so much that Lawrence has no choice but to tell us everything, but I believe that to be much more a product of the times than anything. But the word choice, the sentences, the deliberate repetitions to push a point...all quite lovely.

So, now...on to the stuff that, likely in a shorter novel, wouldn't have bothered me quite as much, for a three-generation spanning story, these things tended to get to me after a while...

This is a highly ambitious novel, spanning the lives of three generations of Brangwen family members. To do that, Lawrence has to cover a lot of ground, and a hell of a lot of years. Therein lies my first complaint. Lawrence will give us pages of cruising at 50 000 feet, lightly skipping over months or years of a character's life, then, without warning, drop into a specific day. After a while, I found this a bit off-putting.

At the same time, Lawrence (and yes, I know this was the accepted style of the times, but still) jumped from character to character to character's point of view with no warnings and no breaks.

Third, while this was a novel about growing up and finding acceptance with one's self and one's lot in life, I found that there was precious little actual dynamic events that brought on the acceptance.

And don't even get me started on Ursula's will she or won't she marry plot toward the end. I actually shouted out, "Make up your mind, for fuck sakes!"

And then, there's the stunningly abrupt ending, as though Lawrence simply said, "Fair enough, I've reached my page count, time to close this puppy down."

In the end, I'll give it four stars for the language and writing, and then take two off that for all the stuff above. Definitely not my favourite Lawrence, and it makes me rather nervous to tackle the follow up, Sons and Lovers. ( )

Such beautiful descriptions of nature and pastoral landscapes but also truthful and in depth depictions of familial and romantic bonds.
Reading Lawrence reignites my passion and love for nature and brings me back to my roots; his writing evokes what is truly important to me and my sense of self.
I really connected to one of the main characters named Ursula. Ursula's thoughts and feelings about Life and the world around her are uncannily synonymous with my own. There were moments when I just couldn't believe that Lawrence, (a man!) could so beautifully describe the innermost fears and desires of a young woman. For me, this felt an extraordinary blessing.
'The Rainbow' stirred many emotions whilst still providing me with a great sense of comfort. As strange as it sounds, I felt most like myself when reading this story. ( )

A Remarkable Book

This book follows three generations of the Brangwean family. Each generation struggles to find the meaning of love and life in their lives.
His writing is beautiful:
"It was midsummer, the days were glamorously long." I never thought a simple sentence could convey a sense of adventure and also of luxury at the same time.

My favorite chapter was "A Man's World". In this chapter, Ursula becomes a teacher after completing high school. (Only to avoid the expectation of marriage). She is a fifth grade teacher with a class of 55 students. She faces the daily challenge of engaging unruly students:

"Children will never naturally acquiesce to sitting in a class and submitting to knowledge. They must be compelled by a stronger wiser will. Against which will they must always strive to revolt.... Ursula thought she was going to become the first wise teacher by making the whole business personal, and using no compulsion. She believed entirely in her own personality."

Unfortunately, she abandons her efforts to using her personality to convince the students to complete their writing and sums. Eventually she resorts to "thrashing" a young boy in front of the class. She then has to deal with the wrath of the parent and her headmaster.

Lawrence was a teacher in a primary school for several years. I wonder how much of this chapter came from his own experience! Throughout the book, I marveled that, writing over 100 years ago, Lawrence was able to convey the inner lives of men and women in a way that still resonates today. ( )

Well, what I think of this book is hard to put into words. Let me begin with the comment that I was astonished to find this was a banned book. Obsceneties? Where? Or maybe the description of those depend on the time one is living in, but I didn't detect anything obscene.
Then the book. Well, I found it chaotic, going back and forth between the thoughts & actions of different people without a clear distiction.
It was also a tidbit boring, merely a description of circumstances, thoughts & feelings. It was okay, but not spectacular. ( )
