Synopsis

The three works collected in this volume, all written in 1924, explore the profound effects on protagonists who embark on psychological voyages of liberation. In St Mawr, Lou Witt buys a beautiful, untamable bay stallion and discovers an intense affinity with the horse that she cannot feel with her husband. This superb novella displays Lawrence's mastery of satirical comedy in a scathing depiction of London's fashionable horse riding set. 'The Princess' portrays the intimacy between an aloof woman and her male guide as she travels through New Mexico in search of new experiences, while in 'The Woman who Rode Away' a woman's religious quest in Mexico brings great danger - and astonishing self-discovery.
