Book Chapter
The chapter analyzes the views of English writer D. H. Lawrence on homosexuality as reflected in his works. Lawrence's attitude towards homosexuality was part and parcel of his attitude towards his own originality and uniqueness. In a world where homosexuality was predominant among the elite, Lawrence stood alone in championing the male-female relationship. In Study of Thomas Hardy, Lawrence's definition of love is completely rooted in heterosexuality.
