Snake When the snake first came to the water-trough, the narrator was excited and glad "he had come like a guest in quiet, to drink at my water trough."

Those voices said to him, "If you were not afraid you would kill him."

Snake by DH Lawrence In Snake, Lawrence tells of a confrontation with a snake he had at his water trough. This poem is actually based on an incident that occurred to him and obviously reflects his feelings and emotions. Lawrence was honored by the snakes presence, but was also afraid. “If you were not afraid, you would kill him”, he said to himself. He simply waits for the snake to finish drinking its water, and then throws a log at it to scare it away. After doing so he immediately regrets
In DH Lawrence’s stories “The Blind Man” and “The Horse Dealer’s Daughter,” the reader watches as characters move from having something missing in their lives, to being truly whole. Lawrence uses images of darkness to illustrate the emotions of his characters. In “The Blind Man,” Isabel goes to look for Maurice and when she steps into the stable where he is, “The darkness seemed to be in a strange swirl of violent life” (Lawrence, 132). The darkness
Lady Chatterley’s Lover, written by DH. Lawrence was first published in 1928. The novel follows around the protagonist of the story, Lady Constance Chatterley. The story is about how this woman, who is trapped in a loveless and almost sterile marriage, finds emotional and physical love with the gameskeeper of her husband’s estate.

scrutiny of others. That did not stop me, however, from pulling apart each line for my eager exploration. At first, his religious adherence gave me pause. Not being religious myself, I was disappointed that I wouldn’t be able to read the poem as Lawrence had meant it to be. But I did understand pain and death. Death of a friendship, of a home, of one moment that wrecked my fairly average life. What have you. For some people, it could be something as simple as the loss of a job or pet. At the core
wondering if there is anything more than just the here and now. In The Rainbow by D.H. Lawrence, the woman craves for more of what could be out there for her in the world. Lawrence shows this desire for expanded knowledge with the use of repetition and imagery. Although the Brangwens appeared to live a full life to the woman, she wanted more than what was there in the comfort of her house and farm.
