it was amazing

Beautiful imagery, beautiful writing. The book is basically about the relationships of three generations of an English farming family. Parts of it are dark, parts of it are sensual, but it ends with light and the hope of the eponymous rainbow.

Quotes Katie Liked

D.H. Lawrence
“Was his life nothing? Had he nothing to show, no work? He did not count his work, anyone could have done it. What had he known, but the long, marital embrace with his wife. Curious, that this was what his life amounted to! At any rate, it was something, it was eternal. He would say so to anybody, and be proud of it. He lay with his wife in his arms, and she was still his fulfillment, just the same as ever. And that was the be-all and the end-all. Yes, and he was proud of it.”
D.H. Lawrence, The Rainbow
