The plot revolves around a movement to replace the Christian God with the old pre-conquest gods, such as Quetzalcoatl, the plumed serpent of the title. We forgive Lawrence's politics because of the beauty of his writing and his ability to get beneath the surface of the country he describes. All three books are published as ebooks by the Blackthorn Press.
Although all three books have the same story line of an aristocratic woman falling in love with a working class man, there are differences in their tone and sensibilities. This first version is less sexual, more political and looks more closely at the conflict within Connie Chatterley as she comes to terms with her love and desire for a 'common' man. Many critics have preferred this, the second version, for its greater depth of understanding between the two main characters and for the more detailed explanation of the character of Clifford Chatterley.
Its frankness and honest examination of the human sexual condition liberated a generation.

This is the full and unexpurgated version of the text. The main difference between the two novels is one of tone. Without the space available in the full novel, the author of a novella has to focus on a limited cast. This is usually the relationship between a couple with the occasional outsider to trigger a conflict, or bring about a realisation of the reality of the relationship.

The story is set on a Nottinghamshire farm and tells the tale of two lovers, almost separated by class and money but brought together by passion and love. The story is set in lodgings in Croydon and the incident may be autobiographical but the story is full of yearning for the life and loves he left behind in Nottinghamshire. A young man returns home to his first love to declare his feelings for her but the moment is lost when the girl will not give herself sexually. Lawrence sets his story against the backdrop of the industrial troubles caused by the Franco-Prussian war of Is all love a compromise between the ideal and the reality of life?
Lawrence is at his best in this story, taken from the scenes of his childhood and based on characters he knew intimately. In this story, the emphasis moves around each member of the family and the visiting clergyman as the tensions in family life are released. The theme of a loveless marriage, redeemed by death is one which Lawrence was to come back to in other stories. The main themes of the story are the class system which dominated society at the time and the pressures put on the young lovers who have to overcome it and the position of women in society who have nothing to offer but their bodies.
For the sake of security and position one daughter makes a loveless marriage whilst the other daughter gives all that up for love. The scene can hardly be called a story in the traditional sense, being the altercation between a miner and his wife over the sharing of strike pay.
Lawrence keeps the story light-hearted, almost comical but the tensions of married life in hard times are just below the surface. Lawrence is beginning to move away from his working class roots in this story, and exploring the relationship of a middle-class couple who have a slight argument, egged on by the wife's friend. Bircumshaw loses his dignity and self-respect for the comforts of married life. For all his insights into women, the misogynist in Lawrence can be detected.
This piece of writing falls between the short story and travel writing but is presented here as a short story largely because it depicts the warm love between Lawrence and his wife Frieda Anita in the story as they begin their life of travel together. The story is largely autobiographical, written when Lawrence and Frieda Anita in the Story had fled England together to live in Austria and Italy.
Frieda had had an affair while they were in Austria and she told Lawrence about it. The story is largely autobiographical, telling the simple tale of an argument between a husband and wife, reflecting the difficult time Lawrence and his new wife Frieda were having. What was the place of a woman to be in a modern marriage?

Lawrence argued that it was the woman's place to submit or unhappiness would ensue at it did in this story. The wife is unable to submit to her husband and the marriage disintegrates. Lawrence returns to the scenes of his young manhood with farming scenes and life he experienced when courting Jessie Chambers at Haggs Farm in Nottinghamshire.
Two brothers find love in two different women, both out of the ordinary for farm lads. Both men are redeemed from their rivalry for each other and their suppressed sexuality by the first experiences of love on the same night. In this delicate story of boy-girl love, Lawrence is at his best, intertwining the feelings of the two lovers with the natural world around them, the countryside, flowers and fields and the moles who are sacrificed to bring the lovers together.
The young girl may consider her lover 'second best' but his passion and honesty ring true. A group of miners, liberated from work by a strike, enjoy a day out but the hard realities of home life and mothers-in-law await their return. Tinged with good humour and the sense of comradeship among the miners and finally between the miner and his wife, this story epitomises working life before the Great War.

He retraces the steps to her farm hoping for what? He finds his old love attached to a physical young man who can give the girl what he could not - pure physical love - and this she prefers to his more intellectual love. The young soldier is driven beyond breaking point but finds a kind of redemption in his final return to natural surroundings and, symbolically, he finds equality in death with his tormentor as they are put side by side in the mortuary. The story can be read in tandem with 'The Prussian Officer' which was written in the same year and has a similar setting and theme.
In this story, the young soldier fights against his own shortcomings as a soldier and as a man. He flees the scene of his crime into the arms of his lover where he finds solace and comfort but he cannot escape the inevitable military machine that Lawrence hated. The wife in the story is probably based on his mother although the husband is unlike the drinking, brutal father portrayed in 'Sons and Lovers', Lawrence's autobiographical novel.
The young wife strains against the bonds of being married and dallies with another man but returns to the arms of her husband once he shows his true feelings for her. There is the simple but honest mine worker, who has taken on a wife who is 'above' him but who is struggling to understand her and her feelings for him.
Slowly, the story unravels the woman's past.
The reader cannot be entirely unsympathetic to her plight, Lawrence is too good a writer to let that happen, but her dishonesty has probably ruined two lives and our feelings are for the husband. The family are placed in an idealised setting, deep in the English countryside but there are snakes in this Garden of Eden. There is conflict between man and woman, brought to the fore by an accident to a child and there is the seeming purposeless life led by the husband.
The story ripples with the eugenic theories popular at the time yet the conflicts are finally solved by the horror of the war. Most of all, though, I was enchanted by the pure romance of the love stories, the quiet strength of most of her heroines and the gallant integrity of her heroes. I cannot claim she inspired me to write historicals because she was writing about her own world and her own time. What did inspire me was the work of Georgette Heyer, who wrote historicals superbly well.
I will never forget my first Heyer— Frederica. I immediately fell under the spell of the romance and felt an almost overwhelming sense of nostalgia, as though I had discovered an era in which I had lived very happily once upon a time. I lapped up everything else she had written, and it did not take me long to know that I had found my own place as a writer.
The River Swimmer: Novellas by Jim Harrison
Heyer created her quite distinctive world based on a real historical era. I have created my own, happy to admit that I was inspired by her and influenced by Austen, who knew that world as it really was. Each writer has an individual voice and vision. I have spent more than thirty years developing and honing my own while writing more than a hundred novels and novellas, most of them set in the Regency era.
Yes, they are historicals, and yes, they are romantic. First and foremost, however, they are love stories. Or maybe that is a false distinction. Perhaps my stories are inextricably all three—romantic historical love stories. In fact, I hope they are. And perhaps they are best expressed in the words of the hero of my new book Someone to Love, November, He is wealthy, titled, gorgeous, powerful, a bit dangerous, aloof, and self-sufficient.
