Publisher's Summary

Dramatisations and readings of selected works by DH Lawrence - plus a radio play by Dan Allum and two bonus documentaries exploring Lawrence’s life and writings.

Crowned ‘the greatest imaginative novelist of our generation’ by EM Forster, DH Lawrence has an undisputed place in England's canon of great authors. In this wide-ranging collection, dramatisations and readings of some of his major works are brought together, exploring themes such as romantic love and sexual desire, individual freedom, class division, war, the beauty of nature and the ugliness of industrialisation.

This rich and varied anthology contains the radio productions of five of Lawrence’s classic novels, and nine short stories and novellas. It includes: Goose Fair, The Christening, Daughters of the Vicar, Her Turn, Love Among the Haystacks, The Shades of Spring, Sons and Lovers, The Rainbow, Women in Love, The Fox, The Ladybird, Kangaroo, Rawdon’s Roof and Lady Chatterley’s Lover.

Also featured is an original radio drama by Dan Allum, The Gypsy (inspired by Lawrence’s The Virgin and the Gypsy), while two bonus radio documentaries - Great Lives and Michael Rosen: On the Trail of DH Lawrence - provide further insight into the inner life of the controversial author.

Due to the archive nature of these recordings, sound quality may vary. With thanks to Keith Wickham, Greg Linden and Roy McMillan.

The full list of narrators also includes Samuel Edward-Cook and Stella Gonet.

Great BBC drama

D. H. Lawrence is one of my favourite authors, I read many of his novels in my 20s and was particularly intrigued by "Women in Love" and "The Virgin and the Gypsy". I'm also a big fan of BBC radio plays, so this collection was perfect for me and took me through a wonderful journey of Lawrence's major works and short stories. I'm now in my 50s and still a big D. H. Lawrence fan!

Chapter headings???

This collection is fantastic and highly recommended.
... but, how long will it be before Audible listens to their listeners who constantly ask for chapter headings? In a collection of 20 hours, am left randomly attempting to find the selection I want to listen to. Please deliver, Audible!
