'The Rainbow' by D. H. Lawrence follows three generations of the Brangwen family, focusing on the sexual dynamics of, and relations between, the characters. Lawrence's frank treatment of sexual desire and the power plays within relationships as a natural and even spiritual force of life caused 'The Rainbow' to be prosecuted in an obscenity trial in late 1915, as a result of which all copies were seized and burnt. After this ban it was unavailable in Britain for 11 years.

not one of my favourites - felt more like an academic study of femaleness and industrialism. Some of the most beautiful descriptions of nature that I have ever read, and some very steamy romantic encounters made it definitely a worthwhile experience.
