Lawrence, D. H.: The Lost Girl. v1. 29 June 07
I plan to get all of the D. H. Lawrence that's available onto Mobileread. Here's another novel (one I have yet to read).
Here's a quote:
"Lawrence started to write THE LOST GIRL (1920) in Italy. He had settled with Frieda in Gargano. In those days they were so poor that they could not afford even a newspaper. The novel dealt with one of Lawrence's favorite subjects - a girl marries a man of a much lower social status, against the advice of friends, and finds compensation in his superior warmth and understanding. "But it needs a certain natural gift to become a loose woman or a prostitute. If you haven't got the qualities which attract loose men, what are you to do? Supposing it isn't in your nature to attract loose and promiscuous men! Why, then you can't be a prostitute, if you try your head off: nor even a loose woman. Since willing won't do it. It requires a second party to come to an agreement." (from The Lost Girl, 1920 ) Lawrence dropped the novel for some years and rewrote the story in an old Sicilian farm-house near Taormina in 1920."
I hope you like it.
