Intessuto di una liricità che accentua la sostanza psichica del romanzo, curato in ogni dettaglio di concretezza visiva, alternato di luci e ombre, minutamente autobiografico, Figli e amanti è la ricerca, sempre incerta e contorta, dei moventi più segreti dell’animo umano, dove ogni gesto, ogni azione acquistano un significato ambivalente e oscuro e si caricano di simboli che coinvolgono la natura e l’uomo. Artista solitario, reietto da quella società che egli ha scandalizzato con le sue opere, Lawrence è tra i primi scrittori a intuire «l’oscura presenza» dell’inconscio in ogni manifestazione umana e a sottolineare la stretta connessione tra eros e conflittualità, sempre colta nelle sue implicazioni politico-sociali.

I started the year transfixed by the visceral floral and fiery passion of Lawrence's The Rainbow (my review HERE ). Its rich earth ripened buds of promise into irresistible blooms of vibrant delicacy. But reading this at the end of the year, I felt more like I'd been dragged through barren mud. Perha Leggi tutto

“Night, in which everything was lost, went reaching out, beyond stars and sun. Stars and sun, a few bright grains, went spiraling round for terror, and holding each other in embrace, there in a darkness that outpassed them all, and left them tiny and daunted. So much, and himself, infinitesimal,
I had no idea what to expect of Sons and Lovers as I went in. I had no idea what the book is about, presumably multiple sons and more than one lovers are involved. With the public domain books just knowing that it is a classic is usually enough. I also had no expectation of D.H. Lawrence, I knew he
'Sons and Lovers' is an excellent book on several fronts. It is a story of a young man who is a budding writer. One sees the poet in him. He is sensitive, forlorn and deeply contemplative. He possesses all the mythic features we often assign to artists. We see him discussing books with his girlfrien Leggi tutto
