      • 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

    1. Lawrence writes beautifully, as ever, but I think novels give him the space to develop characters and situations These short stories seem cut short As soon as you begin to care about someone, they re gone This collection is mostly about World War I, the way it changed British society, and the psychological and cultural cost of the war Nothing seems right any , and maybe it never was right.


    2. He chose neither As for atrocities, he despised the people who committed them as inferior criminal types There was nothing national about crime.


    3. I hesitated to be convinced by the previous reviews for this book for all of them were upsetting I still dared to read the book The title was very much appealing England, my England , how can I resist it Then, I decided I shall judge it for myself.As I began reading, I had a sort of outrage over the book reviewers It was finely written But the I went on through the pages, I felt compassion amongst my fellow readers of this book It was a compilation of short stories tackling mainly some social i [...]


    4. This was a dark and biting selection of stories from just after the first World War, yet none dealt directly with the war itself That made the stories all the readable and enjoyable to me The characters were sometimes hard to fathom thanks to social nicety and social acceptability of the time, for those that use the phrase the gold old days couldn t possibly mean the early 1920 s, especially when concerning the female sex.But the stories did as they should should and poked holes in those ideals [...]


    5. England, My England 4.5 5 No, he had no desire to defy Germany and to exalt England The distinction between German and English was not for him the distinction between good and bad It was the distinction between blue water flowers and red or white bush blossoms just difference The diferrence between the wild boar and the wild bear And a man was no good or bad according to his nature, not according to his nationality.



    6. A slim book of short stories from 1922, England, My England shows Lawrence rather preoccupied with relations between men and women I enjoyed the settings for these stories and appreciated the author s considerable skill at describing people and places His attempts to provide a phonetic rendering of working class speech was lost on me sometimes.


    7. One of Lawrence s many collections of short stories I chose this one since it contains Tickets Please which is one of my favourites and a story which is still relevant today in terms of sexual politics.


    8. As far as I know or remember, I have never read DH Lawrence I was compelled to read this short story collection by Cambridge University Press, because I wanted to read England, My England after I read a quote from it online This collection is heavily annotated and researched, but does not include all his short stories from what I can discern There is a chronology of Lawrence s life included, and the Editor s Preface was a very good introduction to the collection I suspect most reading persons of [...]


    9. Lawrence was an early 20th century controversial English writer His works include essays, novels, short stories, poems, plays, literary criticism and paintings He believed that industrialization had dehumanized society Emotional health and sexuality were common themes in his works This collection of short stories was written between 1913 and1921 Many are set against the background of World War I Stories included are England My England, Tickets, Please, The Blind Man, Monkey Nuts, Wintry Peacock, [...]


    10. The book was disappointing I suppose I look for completion, or somewhat of a happy ending this book had neither In a deeper sense, emotions were expressed and felt clearly life s pain and games people play were quite real the book portrayed the reality of life.
