CHAPTER III: Women in Love: Essential Criticism as Creative Strife

Ryu, Doo-Sun
January 2005
D.H. Lawrence's 'The Rainbow & Women in Love': A Critical Study;2005, p73
The chapter features the novel, Women in Love, by D. H. Lawrence. The novel distinguishes itself as a two-edged novel: it is not only a novel of a prophet presenting the implied author's Metaphysic but it is also a novel about prophecy which puts the possibility of such a genre to the test. Lawrence says of U.S. literature does not apply to this novel, in spite of the fact that Lawrence-the-prophet is set against Lawrence-the-artist and that Birkin meets with a great number of oppositions in the novel.
