D. H. Lawrence and the Dialectics of Spatial Form is an innovative work in the field of Lawrence-studies. Six major works of Lawrence- Sons and Lovers, The Rainbow, Women in Love, The Captain’s Doll, Aaron’s Rod, and The Plumed Serpent- are selected in the study of spatial form. This book departs from the existing critical works on Lawrence, insofar as it rereads the so called Lawrentian characteristic defects in a positive way, connecting with the post-modern literary theories. The author takes account of Lawrence’s aesthetics and ideals, his cultural inheritance, and the resisting forces in English canonical writings of his time. Interpretation of Lawrence in a particular line and value judgement are ignored in order to direct the reader’s attention to a participatory reading. The work contains chapters on “Breaking the Prison Wall”, “Circular Repetition”, “Structural Aesthetics”, “Intertextual Collage”, and “Conclusion” besides a “Preface”. All through the chapters Lawrence has been presented in a new perspective unprecedented, rising above the dispute shrouding the critics.
Being modernist writers, D.H. Lawrence and Virginia Woolf are both interested in the psychology of individuals. Although they differ in their ways of depiction, they employ natural imagery to depict the psychology of the individuals, which can be defined as their Romantic sensibility toward nature. In both writers, though nature is more central to Lawrence's works than to those of Woolf's, nature is of great importance in the creation and representation of characters. Through their contact with nature, their characters experience self-realization as they reveal their hidden selves and as they find ties between their selves and nature. More specifically, this book examines how Lawrence and Woolf depict nature in order to reveal the psychology of characters in relation to their experiencing self-realization in Lawrence's Women in Love (1920) and The Plumed Serpent (1926) and Woolf's The Voyage Out (1915) and Orlando: A Biography (1928).

The resonance of Lawrence's ideas on contemporary issues like gender, feminism, ethics and aesthetics with that of the contemporary thinkers like Foucault, Deleuze, Levinas, Baudrillard, Lyotard, Bakhtin, Lacan, Cixous, Kristeva, Irigaray is what the book traces in the less traversed domain of Lawrence's ouvre--his non-fictional writings. For Lawrence ‘man is a thought adventurer.’ The immense flexibility that such a view suggests helps him explore many of the major issues of contemporary critical discussions. This books traces the vital correspondence of Lawrence’s thought with those of the contemporary thinkers. I claim that Lawrence the critic of culture has anticipated the key issues of postmodernism and feminism. Lawrence, however, remains a critic of culture but without any fixed ‘identity.’ All his pursuits of thought have the objective of learning how not to know. The provisionality and contingency of his thought, rather than ensuring ‘certitude’ to itself, invite us to a space beyond any fixity. “We are prisoners”, says Lawrence in Phoenix, “inside our conception of life and being” (325). Thus thought, in the Lawrentian sense, seeks its own suspension by knowing its own li

From the hedges around the hayfield comes the rich, sweet smell of wild flowers, and the hay will make a fine, soft bed…
Soon after its publication Lady Chatterley's Lover (1928) became notorious for its story of the physical (and emotional) relationship between a working class man and an upper class woman, its explicit descriptions of sex, and its use of then-unprintable words. This last of Lawrence's novels reflects his belief that men and women must overcome the deadening restrictions of industrialized society.
