The Fox is a novella written by D. H. Lawrence and first published in 1923.

Set in Berkshire, England, during the First World War, this short novel immerses us in a gripping story of human relationships and the struggle between desire and social convention.

Nellie March and Jill Banford are two women who decide to live a quiet, isolated life on a farm in the countryside, without the help of male laborers.

Their lives are quiet until a young soldier named Henry arrives at the farm after returning from fighting in World War I. The young man will provoke tensions between the two women that threaten to break the harmony between them. Another problem is the fox that stalks the farm and that they try to catch.

The book is a moving story that questions the gender norms of the time and the role of women in society.

"The two girls were usually known by their surnames, Banford and March. They had taken the farm together, intending to work it all by themselves: that is, they were going to rear chickens, make a living by poultry, and add to this by keeping a cow, and raising one or two young beasts."
