Product Description

Synopsis

She replied to everybody in a soft voice, a strange, soft aplomb that was very attractive. And she moved round with rather mechanical, attractive movements, as if her thoughts were elsewhere. But she had always this dim far-awayness in her bearing: a sort of modesty. The strange man by the fire watched her curiously. There was an alert, inquisitive, mindless curiosity on his well-coloured face.

About the Author

D.H. Lawrence had unconventional opinions, especially about sexuality, and at the time of his death he was thought of mainly as a pornographer who had wasted his considerable talents. But E.M. Forster, in an obituary notice, described him as ""the greatest imaginative novelist of our generation."" Later critics concurred, and Lawrence is now remembered as an important modernist intellectual.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gentle introduction to the world of DH Lawrence 29 Oct. 2010
Format:Paperback
DH Lawrence is famous, or infamous depending on your point of view, for the novel Lady Chatterly's Lover. England my England is a most enjoyable collection of short stories investigating human emotions with some quite unexpected twists and turns that keeps you guessing to the end. The stories are generally around a dozen pages each and as such make excellent bedtime reading.

2.0 out of 5 stars Confused? You will be... 9 Feb. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I don't really know where to start with this review. Which doesn't really matter as Mr Lawrence doesn't seem to know how to end these 'short stories'.

They aren't badly written stories and move along quite nicely but then just stop. That's it.

For example 'Monkey Nuts' about the comely maiden Miss Stokes who flirts with Joe who is a sort of labourer at the railway station. He doesn't fancy her (we aren't told why - she is an attractive girl) even though his more worldly wise pal Albert tries to encourage him. So what happens next, we wait in anticipation as we turn the page... Nothing. She just gives up, goes away again and Joe is 'relieved'.

Even worse is the story 'Wintry Peacock'. A woman finds a letter (written in French) to her ex-soldier husband who has recently returned from the war. She asks a passing stranger if he can translate it for her. He realises it is from the soldier's lover in Belgium who is distraught that he has returned to England, she also writes that she has had his baby. The stranger decides that he can't tell the woman this, so makes out the letter is just from a friend her husband met during the war and is just bit of trivial gossip. The woman seems to guess the truth, though. A promising start to an interesting short story, you might think. What happens next? Does the lady from Belgium turn up with the baby in her arms? Does the soldier's wife find out the truth? No. The soldier ends up meeting the stranger, who tells him what was in the letter. They laugh about it. The end. And don't ask what the business with Joey the Peacock was about.

Maybe I am missing the point and someone can enlighten me. I know Lawrence's work is of a different era and of a different style to modern fiction, but a story still needs a 'proper' ending in my opininion. These stories just left me feeling a bit empty.

It's a free download on Kindle so no harm done, I just expected more.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not great 9 Nov. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for one of the short stories within it, with which the family of a friend of mine had had a connection.
I was rather disappointed with DHL's writing overall. His stories seemed to just come to a dead stop unexpectedly, unlike those of other short-story writers who develop plot and character so skilfully that you end up feeling you have read a novel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short stories 18 Jun. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
which for the most part are very truthfully drawn and carry the aftertaste a good short story leaves, many with some military aspect from the Frist World War, so quite a timely read
