Book Chapter
The chapter discusses some novels written by D. H. Lawrence. Most Lawrence critics have agreed that his novels written after Women in Love are often less readable than The Rainbow and Women in Love. In Aaron's Rod, the balance between Metaphysic and its Essential Criticism becomes deeply disturbed, because Essential Criticism almost disappears. His thematic evolution was accompanied by his philosophical transformation.
