David Herbert Lawrence was a celebrated English writer whose works are best known for their intellectual content along with the imaginative prowess of the author. One of his greatest literary triumphs is The Rainbow. Set in the conformist society of the late nineteenth century England, the novel delves into the lives of three generations of the Brangwen family, grappling in the throes of rapidly industrializing and materializing economy. While Tom is shackled in the ethos of the traditional, the later generations ascend into modernist avenues and find themselves progressively urbanized. Banned, back in the day, for its exploration of the sensual and sexual autonomy of Ursula, the novel forays into the emotional growth of an individual, the workings of a vulnerable psyche, which makes sense even in the contemporary epoch.
