The Trespasser

D. H. Lawrence

Book Overview: 

Brief Encounter meets Tristan and Isolde – on the Isle of Wight, under a vast sky florid with stars. The consequence is tragic indeed for one of the parties, Siegmund, when he sacrifices family life for a few days’ transcendent rapture. His lover, the self-contained Helena, is strong enough to bear a return to the scruffy suburbs. Redemption of a kind is granted to the deserted wife, Beatrice. But between these robust Lawrentian women Siegmund is cancelled out. His love-death is no cosmic swoon but a sordid exit in an unkempt box-room.

In this very British romance, there is no earthly escape from outworn attachments and life’s deadening routine

They lay ignored and insignificant, watching through half-closed fingers the diverse caravan of Day go past. They lay with their latticed fingers over their eyes, looking out at the sailing of ships across their vision of blue water.

'Now, that one with the greyish sails—' Siegmund was saying.

'Like a housewife of forty going placidly round with the duster—yes?' interrupted Helena.

'That is a schooner. You see her four sails, and—'

He continued to classify the shipping, until he was interrupted by the wicked laughter of Helena.
