The Rainbow marked a turning point in D.H. Lawrence’s writing career. Originally intended as a vindication of the female suffragette movement, the novel underwent a complex compositional process through which it launched a broader revolutionary programme that comprised a redefinition of sexual relationships. Banned almost immediately after its publication, it remains to this day one of the most provocative and powerful texts of the 20th century. This volume brings together a collection of new interpretations of the novel and their wide range of themes and critical perspectives are a testimony to the continual relevance of Lawrence’s narrative and moral vision.
