Remembering D. H. Lawrence:
September 11, 1885–March 2, 1930

D-H-Lawrencecrop353 words

David Herbert Lawrence was born on September 11, 1885 in Eastwood, Nottinghamshire, England and died from tuberculosis on March 2, 1930 in Vence, France, at the age of 44. 

The fourth son of a nearly-illiterate coal miner, Lawrence rose by dint of genius and hard work to become an internationally famous, often censored, and sometimes persecuted novelist, poet, essayist, and painter.

Underlying Lawrence’s writings was a visionary “vitalist” philosophy which affirmed the primary reality of life and criticized Christianity, science, technology, democracy, and feminism for suppressing, deforming, and profaning the life force.

Lawrence was also a man of the Right. A frank elitist, he rejected egalitarianism, liberalism, and democracy in favor of a hierarchical, organic society ruled by a dictator — a society that gave priority to aesthetic, cultural, and eugenic values. Lawrence also had strongly ecological and neopagan sensibilities.

Lawrence was astonishingly productive in his 44 years. His best-known novels are Women in Love, Sons and Lovers, Lady Chatterley’s Lover, and The Rainbow. He also wrote numerous poems, short stories, essays, criticism, travelogues about Italy and Mexico, and letters.

    I am half way through The Complete Poems of DH Lawrence. I had just thsi afternoon finished reading the following ;

    Sun In Me by DH Lawrence

    A sun will rise in me
    I shall slowly resurrect
    already the whiteness of false dawn is on my inner ocean

    A sun in me
    and a sun in heaven.
    and beyond that, the immense sun behind the sun,
    the sun of immense distances, that fold themselves together
    within the genitals of living space,
    and further, the sun within the atom
    which is god the atom

    The great naturalist Edward Abbey wrote an essay about Thoreau. He lampooned Thoreau’s 19th century type earnestness, awkwardness, and celibacy – yet at the same time he bowed to the ultimate beauty of his vision. Once when asked about his celibacy he said, “All of Nature is my Bride.” I feel much the same about Lawrence. The Poem quoted above is knocking at the door of the inner mysteries. And I was greatly moved by the end of Lady’s Chatterly’s Lover when the Gardner yearns for his brothers across time and space to join him in battle against those who were destroying what was left of the natural life of England.
