D. H. Lawrence’s writing – from the first poems, to Sons and Lovers, to his later novels – is pervaded by erotic moments which tend to underline the importance of naturalness and instinctiveness in contrast with the dominant morality of the time. The Princess and The Woman Who Rode Away, narrating the experience of two heroines in their confrontation with the Amerindian cultures, contain a peculiar mixture of Eros and Thanatos, while the erotic and formative adventure of the protagonist of The Virgin and the Gypsy develops through her contact with a Gypsy’s culture. Lawrence’s strongly symbolic writing in these short narratives anticipates in many ways his last novel Lady Chatterley’s Lover.

Abstract

D. H. Lawrence’s writing – from the first poems, to Sons and Lovers, to his later novels – is pervaded by erotic moments which tend to underline the importance of naturalness and instinctiveness in contrast with the dominant morality of the time. The Princess and The Woman Who Rode Away, narrating the experience of two heroines in their confrontation with the Amerindian cultures, contain a peculiar mixture of Eros and Thanatos, while the erotic and formative adventure of the protagonist of The Virgin and the Gypsy develops through her contact with a Gypsy’s culture. Lawrence’s strongly symbolic writing in these short narratives anticipates in many ways his last novel Lady Chatterley’s Lover.
