5.0 out of 5 stars Central Female Character's Development into Womanhood, 19 Feb. 2011
This review is from: The Virgin and The Gipsy & Other Stories (Wordsworth Classics) (Paperback)
This is another great story by Lawrence, where he charts the emotional and sexual development of his central female character, Yvette. In it the power of the Gypsy as a conduit to Yvette's self- awareness is portrayed as almost mystical.

The novella has a list of strongly drawn characters. Her family, nasty characters all, apart from her sister, all have a view of what Yvette should be and that includes the boy who wants to marry her. Their expectations are stifling for the girl.

It takes a flood (for Lawrence a cleansing ablution) before Yvette can finally be free.

Reading, studying and then having the joy of sharing the work of Lawrence with young people, when I taught him at `A' Level has been one of the high points of my life.

In my own novel `A Song for Jo' Lawrence has an influence on the intellectual and emotional development of the two main characters, Jo and Chris, who are college students studying English. Other great literature from Keats, Emily Bronte and Shakespeare (and more) is worked into the narrative. It is a love story with a difference!

People of all ages and sex have enjoyed it.

It's available on Amazon - please follow the link.
