'A critic must be able to feel the impact of a work of art in all its complexity and force. To do so, he must be a man of force and complexity himself...''A critic must be emotionally alive in every fibre, intellectually capable and skilful in essential logic, and then morally very honest.'These comments by D. H. Lawrence are as close a description as any of himself as a critic. They come from his essay on fellow novelist John Galsworthy, and there are many other pieces on novels and novelists in this selection. But Lawrence's range of genres extends to poetry and plays andpaintings, and his critical writing encompasses an enormous variety of subjects, from Aeschylus and the Apocalypse to symbolism and syphilis, for his nterests are philosophical , psychological, religious, moral, sociological, historical and cultural as well as literary and artistic. This selectionis a treasure-trove of `thought adventures' by one of literature's liveliest critical spirits.

"Set in the rural Midlands of England, The Rainbow (1915) revolves around three generations of the Brangwens, a strong, vigorous family, deeply involved with the land. When Tom Brangwen marries a Polish widow, Lydia Lensky, and adopts her daughter Anna as his own, he is unprepared for the passion that erupts between them. All are seeking individual fulfillment, but it is Ursula, Anna's spirited daughter, who, in her search for self-knowledge, rejects the traditional role of womanhood." "In his introduction, James Wood discusses Lawrence's writing style and the tensions and themes of The Rainbow. This Penguin edition reproduces the Cambridge text, which provides a text as close as possible to Lawrence's original. It also includes suggested further reading, a fragment of 'The Sisters II' from his first draft, and chronologies of Lawrence's life and of The Rainbow's Brangwen family."--BOOK JACKET.

Focusing on D. H. Lawrence's concept of «essential criticism», which was introduced in his posthumously published «Study of Thomas Hardy» and his statement that «every work of art adheres to some system of morality. But it must contain the essential criticism on the morality to which it adheres», this book examines the ways in which Lawrence presents his ideas in his major novels The Rainbow and Women in Love. It explores how this concept plays a crucial role in his fiction as an «other» to the implied author's messages: functioning differently, as equivocation and creative strife, respectively, in The Rainbow and Women in Love, the concept helps to make these novels more dynamic that commonly realized.

Metaphor And Meaning In D H Lawrence S Later Novels

Although D. H. Lawrence's later novels have been the subject of much discussion by critics, few scholars have recognized or dealt with his sense of craft. By examining Lawrence's careful and finely orchestrated strategies with language, especially metaphor, Humma argues that a number of the longer works—from Aaron's Rod on and including the posthumously published The Virgin and the Gipsy—are small masterpieces. Different in kind from Women in Love or The Rainbow, these fictions are very important in their own way. Humma maintains that the early and middle novels work largely through powerful symbols. Those of the last decade, though, develop through an intricate interlacing of metaphor and symbolic detail. Humma devotes a chapter to each to Aaron's Rod, The Ladybird, Kangaroo, St.Mawr, The Plumed Serpent, The Virgin and the Gipsy, Lady Chatterley's Lover and The Escaped Cock. Aaron's Rod, as a transitional work, reveals much about Lawrence's narrative method and its dependence upon combinations of images. The Plumed Serpent, Humma suggests, is Lawrence's most ambitious failure. Other critics have faulted plot, character, and meaning, but Humma sees incoherent metaphors as the basis for those other problems. Because Lawrence's metaphors shape myths essential to central actions and meanings, the reader cannot fully appreciate the strategic function of metaphor in them. When Lawrence's method is successful, as it is in Lady Chatterley's Lover, for example, figures of speech overlap each other, crossing boundaries in a web of “interpenetrating metaphors” that provide both structural integrity and thematic resonance. Paying close attention to the texts, Metaphor and Meaning in D. H. Lawrence's Later Novels shows that Lawrence was far from the indifferent craftsman in his later fiction that he has frequently been considered. In fact, Lawrence was acutely aware that language and meaning are inseparable, that technique, as Mark Schorer said, is discovery. John Humma's fresh perspective upon the art and meaning of Lawrence's later work provides a major revaluation of this last phase in the writer's career.

Lawrence was a novelist in the English tradition and also a prophet who related all his ideas to the restless debate going on in his mind about love and sex. The extremes of his personality and his views have provoked nearly all the contributors in this volume to write far beyond the space allotted to each. Some of these essays will be essential reading to the Lawrence student, whilst the collection as a whole will provide an important introduction to him in his time, his friends, and the many places in which he lives and worked.

Lawrence's experience of Italy's people, her past and her landscape enabled him to concretize a mythic dimension that he had previously employed without adequate integration in his texts. The myth most central to all of his works is resurrection. His rewriting of biblical narratives blends the apocalyptic principles and flavor of Christianity with the essential premise of pagan rebirth mythology - that fertility, virility and the body are sacred. Combining these two sources, Lawrence produces a religion of his own, which is encapsulated in his resurrection ideal. This study focuses on the works produced during his three Italian periods.

Moby-Dick; or, The Whale is a novel by Herman Melville, first published in 1851. The story tells the adventures of wandering sailor Ishmael, and his voyage on the whaleship Pequod, commanded by Captain Ahab. Ishmael soon learns that Ahab has one purpose on this voyage: to seek out Moby Dick, a ferocious, enigmatic white sperm whale. In a previous encounter, the whale destroyed Ahab's boat and bit off his leg, which now drives Ahab to take revenge. D. H. Lawrence's critique of Moby-Dick Lawrence's opinions earned him many enemies and he endured official persecution, censorship, and misrepresentation of his creative work throughout the second half of his life, much of which he spent in a voluntary exile which he called his "savage pilgrimage." Lawrence is now valued by many as a visionary thinker and significant representative of modernism in English literature. Typee is Herman Melville's first book, a classic in the literature of travel and adventure partly based on his actual experiences as a captive on the island Nuku Hiva in the South Pacific Marquesas Islands, in 1842. Table of contents: Moby-Dick D. H.

Where D H Lawrence Was Wrong About Woman

David Holbrook has spent many years teaching D. H. Lawrence's works to students, while Lawrence has been a primary influence in Holbrook's novels and poetry. By degrees, however, he came to be suspicious of Lawrence's attempts to "teach us to be men and women," especially in the field of sex. So, Holbrook set out on a detailed analysis of Lawrence's whole oeuvre. What he found was startling. From the beginning he found Lawrence haunted by a deep fear of woman, and by a hostility toward her, even in The White Peacock. In the great tragic novel Sons and Lovers, there are many clues to Lawrence's intense relationship with his mother. This predicament is illuminated by recent studies of gender from a psychoanalytic point of view. Holbrook finds that Lawrence's mother, in the absence of a real love relationship, and in her grief for her dead child, made Lawrence into her "idolised phallus." This phallus stalks through the short stories and especially through the versions of Lady Chatterly's Lover. This element is to be found in the longer novels, in which Lawrence develops a personal myth in which his alter ego is depicted as the "man from the Infinite," who has a special role: to raise woman from the dead--in fact, to resurrect the dead mother. The reasons for this need are expressed with amazing clarity in Kangaroo, in which the Lawrence-like hero is haunted by a menacing mother in his dreams--the threat being that unless he gives her a meaningful life, she will blight his. Lawrence's male characters are nearly all tormented by this kind of ghost, and his solution is to seek to exercise control over women. She may be put to death, as in The Fox and The Woman Who Rode Away. She may be sodomized and taken in contemptuous anger, as in Lady Chatterly's Lover, and is depicted as enjoying this. The enthusiasm for the sodomizing of woman is quite clearly there in The Rainbow, Women in Love, and Mr. Noon. Some critics have spoken of this as a "holy communion," but Holbrook sees it as a denial of woman, an avoidance of the matrix where the ghost of the dead mother lurks. In the end, in The Plumed Serpent, an intelligent American woman submits herself to the fascistic domination of two murderers who are running a new religious-political campaign, while forfeiting even her capacity for orgasm. Everything in Lawrence's work leads to this false solution. Yet such critics as F. R. Leavis commend Lawrence for his concepts of "manhood"--and even endorse such stories as The Virgin and the Gypsy, in which a duplicitous traveler seduces a young girl in vengeance on the middle class. Yet the politics behind this kind of propaganda are those of Otto Gross, the insane German sex revolutionary who was a sometime lover of Lawrence's wife, Frieda, and her sister. Mr. Noon reveals the confusion in Lawrence between the novelist squarely in the Anglo-Saxon tradition and the husband of Frieda. No one who reads this book can ever again consider Lawrence's position "normative" or "celebratory" but will find it full of hate and death--despite his achievements--in his best work.
