#1 DH LAWRENCE

Since they're so cheap, i decided to get a few, DHL first, also Balzac, Dostoevsky (both of which i had the exact same kindles before of but i never really stuck with it, this time might be different as i must appreciate the extreme effusiveness at my fingertips at such a steal of a deal, which balances out with the exorbitant sums spent on films), Joyce (i may try him chronologically like all the rest), and Ernest Hemingway (i never ever gave him a chance, this one's just a collection, not complete) I must read a minimum of 2hrs each day!!!

DH LAWRENCE - TABLE OF CONTENTS







Quotes

The White Peacock

“Oh, you’re so bloomin’ cautious. I’d rather have a tack in my shoe than a cautious man, wouldn’t you Lettie?”

“It does make you mad, though, to touch the fur, and not be able to grab him” — he laughed quietly.

Is it there the moon will rise?” “Yes — I like to see it come over the wood. It lifts slowly up to stare at you. I always think it wants to know something, and I always think I have something to answer, only I don’t know what it is,” said Emily.

I think there’s more in the warm touch of a soft body than in a prayer. I’ll pray with kisses.”

Lawrence is really interesting to read now given how he needed to be discreet with his writing then. It's layered. A lot of inference. Really skillful.
[@324070,Ynotisay] Great, will enhance my experience keeping that in mind.

I once had dinner with Lady Dorothy Brett, D.H. Lawrence's girlfriend. She was in her 90s.
[@45528,hunkalove] Wow!!! Nice :)

I'd have sworn you vowed no purchases until September.
[@663519,Mamapolo2016] These were cheap though!! thanks for remembering, my words must have consequences!!

I have a soft spot for Lawrence. You must read his semi-autobiographical Sons and Lovers and of course, Lady Chatterley's Lover, which was so boldly but beautifully written in its time 🤪
[@398195,Lacemaker] Those will be highlights along with Women in Love :)
