Women in Love, D.H. Lawrence (Wordsworth Classic, 1992)

She was prepared to fight him for it. For she believed in an absolute surrender to love. She believed that love far surpassed the individual. He said the individual was more than love, or than any relationship. For him, the bright, single soul accepted love as one of its conditions, a condition of its own equilibrium. She believed that love was everything. Man must render himself up to her. He must be quaffed to the dregs by her. Let him be her man utterly , and she in return would be his humble slave–whether she wanted it or not (230).
