Women in Love: Jeff Wallace introduces BBC Radio 4 Extra serialisation
Jeff Wallace, Professor of English in the School of Education, introduces a serialisation of D.H. Lawrence’s classic novel Women in Love for BBC Radio 4 Extra over the coming week. A series of short interviews will be broadcast over the weekend, Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th January, and repeated alongside the serialisation itself, which runs from Monday 28th – Thursday 31st January. Jeff says: ‘I think Women in Love is Lawrence’s greatest novel, because its so full of a sense of urgency about what might be made of life after the First World War. Some of its central concerns – the post-industrial environment, for example, and its effects on our relationships with each other – are highly topical for us. The novel is also full of dialogue and therefore lends itself very well to radio treatment – this serial was first produced by the poet and writer Elaine Feinstein in the 1980s.’
