About the Book

''The Virgin and the Gipsy'', written as a brief fiction titled by English novelist D.H. Lawrence, was posthumously released in 1930. Due to the spelling of "Gipsy" in the original and early editions, the title The Virgin and the Gypsy that is used today can be confusing. The novel includes Two sisters, daughters of an Anglican vicar, who return from finishing school overseas to a drab, lifeless East Midlands rectory. Their mother has run off with another man and their father is deeply humiliated. Yvette sees her father as a mean-spirited and cowardly person for the first time. The book's conclusion has a shocking turn of events. A huge flood surges through the vale, coming from a burst dam at a nearby reservoir. In the nick of time, the brave gipsy man rescues Yvette despite the fact that the flood washes most of the rectory away. The gipsy man represents male sexuality as well as individual freedom. Lawrence saw himself as a liberator for people who needed to experience life without fear or shame. Yvette is like the reincarnation of her mother's rebellious nature as she yearns for freedom.

About Author

Lawrence,D.H. (David Herbert)

D.H. Lawrence, or David Herbert Lawrence, was an English author of novels, short tales, poems, plays, essays, travel guides, and letters. He was born in Eastwood, Nottinghamshire, England, on September 11, 1885, and passed away in Vence, France, on March 2, 1930. He became one of the most important English authors of the 20th century because of his novels Sons and Lovers (1913), The Rainbow (1915), and Women in Love (1920). Lawrence never again resided in England after the First World War. He and his wife left for Italy in 1919. Soon after, he started writing a series of books that included The Lost Girl (1920), and Aaron's Rod (1922). All three books are divided into two sections, with the tribal ritual of mate-finding taking center stage in the first and the central character venturing to Europe in the second. All three books have open-ended conclusions, but in Mr. Noon, Lawrence delivers his protagonist Lawrence's firsthand account of his time in Germany in 1912 with Frieda, carrying on the lighthearted theme he introduced in Sons and Lovers. Lawrence made the decision to leave Europe in 1921 and travel to the US, Australia, and Sri Lanka.
