    D.H. Lawrence is either adored or mocked, he is the kind of writer that seems to provoke extreme reactions from readers, even in his days. Quite a controversial figure and known by his intense, some might claim overdone style, D.H. Lawrence remains to this day one of my favorite authors. His poems haven’t disappointed, and I don’t know why I have waited so long to read his verses.

Lawrence is either adored or mocked, he is the kind of writer that seems to provoke extreme reactions from readers, even in his days. Quite a controversial figure and known by his intense, some might claim overdone style, D.H. Lawrence remains to this day one of my favorite authors. His poems haven’t disappointed, and I don’t know why I have waited so long to read his verses. They have brought back the power of Lawrence’s voice with renewed impetus and shed new light into his elaborate prose, so full of pathos and voluptuous imagery. What has most struck me is his ability to portray the insurmountable gap between people who care for each other, the way individual frontiers, self-doubt and fear collide with the almost violent need to connect with another, both in a physical and emotional level. Boundaries that he considers a natural result of the way gender delineates the expectations of love, or the artificial construct of what is socially accepted for males and females. As it happens in his novels, Lawrence doesn’t shy away from the sexual desire that consumes the nameless man of his poems, although he is eaten raw by guilt and shame for feeling that way. Whether that guilt is the result from external judgment or self-imposed punishment remains a mystery that is overshadowed by the passionate force of the man’s feelings. “With the swiftest fire of my love, you are destroyed. ‘Tis a degradation deep to me, that my best Soul’s whitest lighting which should bright attest God stepping down to earth in one white stride, Means only to you a clogged, numb burden of flesh Heavy to bear, even heavy to uprear Again from earth, like lilies wilted and sere Flagged on the floor, that before stood up so fresh.” Lilies in the Fire This collection also includes a selection of his country poems that exhibits a fair and often amusing representation of dialect and local culture, although in my opinion he shines with blinding brilliance when his inconsistent and deeply humane odes to love and its impending consummation that extinguishes all fire leave an empty space where inescapable loneliness fuses in perfect harmony with the calm silence of the landscape. “Ah listen, for Silence is not lonely: Imitate the magnificent trees That speak no word of their rapture, but only Breathe largely the luminous breeze.” Corot

    Some of the most passionate love poems I have ever read; the vein of desire pounds strong through this selection. The nature and effect of love (and loving) are examined - the intensity and longing to desire and be desired is explored from many different perspectives. Kisses that 'taste' the pulse of the loved one are almost vampiric in description - Lawrence is truly a masterful poet.

    Then I longed for you with your mantle of love to fold Me over, and drive from out of my body the deep Cold that had sunk to my soul, and there kept hold.

    The book is about poem and collection of works by DH Lawrence from the 1913 and it is quite interesting to read how the world of poem evolved since then. To read some poem like Wedding Morn, the poem is very rhythm based and has a lot of melody to it. Definitely a good pastime read.

    Early XX century poetry still looks at the long XIX century.
