Book Chapter
The chapter analyzes the views of English writer D. H. Lawrence towards the Jews, as reflected in his works. Far from being anti-Semitic, Lawrence actually conceived the Jewish people to be the heroes of the supreme Lawrentian religious mystery. This Lawrentian affinity with the Jews is given powerful presentment in his Study of Thomas Hardy and indeed serves as Lawrence's last word in Apocalypse and other writings. Thus Lawrence's feelings about the Jews were extraordinarily rich, extraordinarily complex and a far cry from anti-Semitism.
