She was unhappy her whole life and lived though another human as a source of happiness.

Three colors in particular - red, black, and white - seem to carry some sort of subtle connotation which reveals more about the characters, their actions, and their motives for those actions, than the plot or the setting alone.

D.H. Lawrence's Sons and Lovers

- D. H. Lawrence is considered one of the Twentieth Century's greatest and most visionary English novelists. He was born in 1885 in Eastwood, a mining community in Nottinghamshire, England (DeMott iii). His father was an uneducated miner and his mother had been a schoolteacher before she married.

Thus the vast differences between his parents was cause for "the fabric of his parents' marriage [to be] ripped by bitterness, violence and hate" (DeMott vii)....   [tags: Lawrence Sons and Lovers Essays]
