ABSTRACT
The article describes the writing style of author D. H. Lawrence. His essay dealt with an experience of stealing grapes from a vineyard in France. He shared his visit to New Mexico, a town with Navaho Indians. His work is an expression of his innermost self. He tasted the graoes he has taken from the vine and he described its sweet taste and compared it with the Carignane of Fresno or the Zinfandel and the Alicante Bouschet. His conscience bothers him because of the incident at the vineyard. However, he found an abandoned vinveyard with clusters of flowers but without grapes.
