Using selected novels and short stories, this study reevaluates D.H. Lawrence's work. It considers the influence of feminist literary criticism, provides a socio-economic background to Lawrence's view of sexuality, and analyzes the didactic intentions of Lawrentian morality. There is also an examination of the various concepts of marriage and images of the mother found in Lawrence's work. The central theme of sexuality is broadened out to include discussion of themes such as Platonic love, homoeroticism, promiscuity and the philosophy of blood-consciousness as the basis of Lawrence's sex theory. A special emphasis is put on the theme of human touch.
