    "Why can`t I love a hundred men? Why must I choose one?"

    Ursula Brangwen is a young woman determined to claim her independence. She goes to college, gets a job, experiments sexually with another woman and is only interested in love if it is without commitment. But despite her constant rebellion against society's expectations of women, Ursula finds herself pushed down the same path of marriage and entrapment as her mother and grandmother before her.

    Banned shortly after its publication on the grounds of obscenity, `The Rainbow` (1905) is a three-generational story of misunderstandings, desire and misplaced passion. The book was adapted by director Ken Russel in 1989, starring Sammi Davis as Ursula.


    LUST Classics is a collection of erotic literary classics. Although some of their content can appear controversial, these titles have been selected due to their historical importance within the field of erotic literature.
