The Virgin and the Gypsy, 3 Audio-CDs

Produktbeschreibung

In a claustrophobic household, oppressed by her blind, toad-like grandmother and a cowardly, conventional father, Yvette¿s exuberance seems doomed to suppression. But meeting a gypsy awakens unfamiliar emotions in her, making her challenge the family¿s accepted morality. As she wavers between conformity and rebellion, a flash flood threatens her home, her world and her life.
This short novel deals with all the major themes of sexuality and identity that made Lawrence one of the most original and influential writers of the 20th century; and it is a satirical, atmospheric, moving and surprising masterpiece.
David Herbert Lawrence (1885-1930), Sohn eines Minenarbeiters und einer Lehrerin, arbeitete in London zunächst selbst als Lehrer. Als er an Tuberkulose erkrankte, mußte er seinen Beruf aufgeben und unternahm rastlos schreibend ausgiebige Reisen. Sein Werk, entstanden unter dem Eindruck der Psychoanalyse Freuds, wurde wegen erotischer Freizügigkeiten scharf angegriffen. Neben zahlreichen Romanen und Erzählungen veröffentlichte Lawrence auch Reisebücher, Essays und Lyrik. Er starb 1930 in Vence bei Nizza.

Klappentext



In post-war East Midlands, in a home dominated by their difficult grandmother and aunt, Yvette and Lucille are two sisters struggling to bring joy into their lives. Their mother, having run off in scandal, leaves the two to suffer a dysfunctional family life and oppressive domesticity. But one day, Yvette meets a free-spirited gypsy and his family, awakening her sexual desires and compounding her disenchantment.
