Book Chapter
The chapter explores the subject of homosexuality in the poem Genesis and Exodus, by D. H. Lawrence. In this poem, Lawrence is evidently expressing his jocularity in relation to the issue and analysis of homosexuality. Furthermore, he is expressing his hope that homosexuality will someday disappear, depart, leave. Thus Lawrence at this stage of his aspiration to poetic strength and poetic immortality did not feel that it was essential for him to deal with, solve, save the subject of homosexuality in order to assure his poetic immortality.
