DH Lawrence ,Jane Austen...Don't Know Anne Michaels...

Posted to What Are You Reading?

It has been years since I read Lawrence but I do find his style entrancing. I remember reading Sons and Lovers a few times when I lived in Russia (not merely b/c it was only one of the english books I could get my hands on...) but because of the feeling that what I was reading was real human experience.
Austen too is one I like but it has been awhile. Last thing I read from her was Northanger Abbey. It seemed a little less interesting and more contrived than some of her other works.
Anne Michaels, not familiar with. Can you describe her style,themes etc? Maybe a title?
