The Plumed Serpent is a novel by D. H. Lawrence, first published by Martin Secker in 1926. The original working title of an early draft was "Quetzalcoatl", a reference to the cult of the plumed serpent in Mexico.
The novel has a contemporary setting during the period of the Mexican Revolution. It opens with a group of tourists visiting a bullfight in Mexico City. One of them, Kate Leslie, departs in disgust and encounters Don Cipriano, a Mexican general. Later she meets his friend, an intellectual landowner Don Ramon, and travels to Sayula, a small town set on a lake. Ramon and Cipriano are leading a revival of a pre-Christian religion and Kate becomes drawn into their cult.
