    About "D.H. Lawrence"

    1. D.H. Lawrence

      David Herbert Richards Lawrence was an English writer of the 20th century, whose prolific and diverse output included novels, short stories, poems, plays, essays, travel books, paintings, translations, literary criticism and personal letters His collected works represent an extended reflection upon the dehumanizing effects of modernity and industrialisation In them, Lawrence confronts issues relating to emotional health and vitality, spontaneity, human sexuality and instinct.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 he called his savage pilgrimage At the time of his death, his public reputation was that of a pornographer who had wasted his considerable talents E M Forster, in an obituary notice, challenged this widely held view, describing him as the greatest imaginative novelist of our generation Later, the influential Cambridge critic F R Leavis championed both his artistic integrity and his moral seriousness, placing much of Lawrence s fiction within the canonical great tradition of the English novel He is now generally valued as a visionary thinker and a significant representative of modernism in English literature.enpedia wiki D.H._Law

    2. Oh D.H How did I forget you My running in the woods in a white dress at midnight poet If I were the king of the world, I would declare that all poets must have beards and use at least two exclamation points and two question marks per poem, and must write at least one poem with wind in it per year.Song of a Man Who Has Come ThroughNot I, not I, but the wind that blows through me A fine wind is blowing the new direction of Time.If only I let it bear me, carry me, if only it carry me If only I am s [...]


    3. What is it about Lawrence and sex Even the tortoises are having intercourse in this collection of poetry And let me just say, Lawrence, the bunny poem, dude, really That aside, or maybe because of it, many of the poems in the collection are good Even if Lawrence had never written any of his novels, many of these poems might have earned a place in literature as well He covers than sex, but politics and the hope and contradiction that is America There is much about gender roles and relationships [...]


    4. The Great American Sage Don Jones introduced me to D,H Lawrence poetry in 2000 and D.H is one of the greatest gifts I have received in understanding the depth and breath of the sacred masculine s longing for wholeness in our world true love, natural beauty and authenticity in interactions with others This is a complete digest of D.H s poetic angst, insights and blessings in modernity that reveals a new wonderful landscape of wholeness in humanity and horizons in the human heart for all of us to [...]


    5. love One thing is certain, we ve got to take hands off lovee moment i swear to love a woman all my life that very moment i begin to hate her.In the same way, if i swore to hate a woman all my life, I should instantly feel a pang of compunctionAmounting almost to love D H Lawrence


    6. Bat I had to read some of D.H Lawrence s poems for an English class my favorite one was Bat Lawrence begins this poem by describing a beautiful scene of bats flying in the sunset in Florence Italy He believes these bats to be swallows, but asks himself why are they flying so late He begins to study the way they fly and how they look in the sky When he realized that they are bats he changes, and begins to describe this animal with certain disgust, he calls them creatures that hang themselves up l [...]


    7. Didn t read this in its entity because I m not a fan of poetry but I read a good amount of these poems and I liked them.But there are too many for me to sit and read this from beginning to end.



    8. I m not entirely sure that every poem in here needed to be published, but it was a complete collection and read over the course of many, many months, worth the effort in my opinion.


    9. D.H Lawrence s poems are intensely expressive My personal favorite of his poems in this large collection is the very last, Phoenix For those interested in Metaphysics especially Sufism or even Buddhism they will appreciate the words of the poem dipped into oblivion fanaa in sufic nomenclature.Overall I adore the work It also includes poems regarding politics, love, morality, religion, justice, etiquette and even subtle satire Here are some short selections Souls to SaveYou tell me every man has [...]


    10. This is one I ve picked up off and on over many years My favorite is the little poemSelf PityI never saw a wild thingsorry for itself.A small bird will drop frozen dead from a boughwithout ever having felt sorry for itself Now, I could say that it is not a poem, but just a piece of observation which sticks in my memory Which, I suppose, could be a definition of poetry after all.


    11. Though Lawrence is mainly known as a novelist, he has written huge number of poems His poetry is deep and digs into the consciousness of human nature and also mythical connections.Some of the poetry of Lawrence was translated unto Arabic, and I have rendered his poem Ship of Death into Arabic as far ago as 1964.


    12. Reading this book was an epic experience in my life I read it kind of slow It s really like reading someone s journal There s just a strange powerful energy to it Most of the poems aren t great by themselves, but together they gain all these strange momentums, they start to take you over Some of his short ones are his best.


    13. SorrowWhy does the thin grey strandFloating up from the forgottenCigarette between my fingers,Why does it trouble me Ah, you will understand When I carried my mother downstairs,A few times only, at the beginning Of her soft foot malady,I should find, for a reprimandTo my gaiety, a few long grey hairsOn the breast of my coat and one by oneI watched them float up the dark chimney.


    14. Quick read since the poems are just so beautiful and straightforward His words are so beautiful but also witty sometimes The poems certainly make me think of the cruel reality yet appreciate certain things


    15. I read some of his short stories and poems in highschool and thought they were dark and depressing with few redeeming qualities I appreciate the attempt at defining the human condition , but it just gets depressing and old after a while.


    16. And I think in this empty worldthere was room for me and a mountain lion And I think in the world beyond,how easily we might spare a million or two humans And never miss them.


    17. Awesome Poet Here is one of the poems I loved It s short Self PityI never saw a wild thing sorry for itself A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself.


    18. Look for selections instead Lawrence had a lot of half formed repetitions, and junk He was weak when working in rhyme, stronger outside of it Pretty experimental.




    19. why struggle thru lady chatterleys lover and missing the lame sodomy bit anyway its that lame when you can be a complete pansy and use this as yr pillow




    20. I studied D.H Lawrence for a high school assignment Lucky for me, because I really liked his work a lot I haven t read every poem, but some of my favorite are Ship of Death and Snake.
