Product Description
Lawrence's reputation as a novelist has often meant that his achievements in poetry have failed to receive the recognition they deserve. This edition brings together, in a form he himself sanctioned, his Collected Poems of 1928, the unexpurgated version of Pansies, and Nettles, adding to these volumes the contents of the two notebooks in which he was still writing poetry when he died in 1930. It therefore allows the reader to trace the development of Lawrence as a poet and appreciate the remarkable originality and distinctiveness of his achievement. Not all the poems reprinted here are masterpieces but there is more than enough quality to confirm Lawrence's status as one of the greatest English writers of the twentieth century. ... Read more

Nice product, I would just like to say it's a shame it didn't include "Lady Chatterley's lover" as well, and perhaps more short stories, which would have made this edition more complete. Also, do not let the other review mislead you, as it is about a different book. This one contains no poetry, that I can tell.

5-0 out of 5 stars One long poetic journal
Lawrence's poems have never been among my favorites. I think one reason is that they have been so flowing and evanescent, have not come to some critical point in great memorable lines. They are spontaneous outpourings and make a record of his inner life and struggle. And in this inner life he feels into nature and makes the things of this world, animals, trees, plants feel his feelings and respond as him to him. The strange sympathy which overflows in Lawrence makes him unique as a poet.
Joyce Carol Oates in a long instructive critical essay on Lawrence explains part of his poetic practice this way.
"Lawrence's poems are blunt, exasperating, imposing upon us his strangely hectic, strangely delicate music, in fragments, in tantalizing broken-off parts of a whole too vast to be envisioned--and then withdrawing again. They are meant to be spontaneous works, spontaneously experienced; they are not meant to give us the sense of grandeur or permanence that other poems attempt, the fallacious sense of immortality that is an extension of the poet's ego. Yet they achieve a kind of immortality precisely in this: that they transcend the temporal, the intellectual. They are ways of experiencing the ineffable "still point" that Eliot could approach only through abstract language.

"It is illuminating to read Lawrence's entire poetic work as a kind of journal, in which not only the finished poems themselves but variants and early drafts and uncollected poems constitute a strange unity--an autobiographical novel, perhaps--that begins with "The quick sparks . . ." and ends with "immortal bird." This massive work is more powerful, more emotionally combative, than even the greatest of his novels. Between first and last line there is literally everything: beauty, waste, "flocculent ash," the ego in a state of rapture and in a state of nausea, a diverse streaming of chaos and cunning."

Lawrence so restless so individual could not bear the constrictions of traditional poetic form, and he stretches the free verse technique of Whitman even further, bending its broken lines to the shape of his own soul.

I think Oates has its right, and Lawrence is not properly read by reading a poem here and there, but only by immersing oneself in the total flow of his work.

Again his soul and feeling and world are not mine but it is impossible not to feel the poetry interfused in almost all he writes.

Great collection! It will give me a reading material for a good few weeks.

I've purchased over 30 of these complete author collections from this publisher. These collections work superbly on the Kindle. Take Mark Twain collection. The collection includes huge number of Mark Twain's works all in one place, searchable and well-organized. If I would have purchased all these books separately, searching for 'The Gilded Age' among hundreds of other books on my Kindle would be a nightmare. With Mobile Reference collections, I simply click 'Works of Mark Twain', then click Novels> 'The Gilded Age'. I can also click 'List of works in alphabetical order' > 'G' > 'Gilded Age'. If I forget the book title but remember that `The Gilded Age' was written by Mark Twain early in his career, I can click on 'List of works in chronological order' > (1873) 'The Gilded Age'.

If I want another author, say, Charles Dickens, I click `Home' > `Works of Charles Dickens'. If I want Dostoevsky, I click `Works of Fyodor Dostoevsky'. I think this format is perfect for organizing books on the Kindle.

Inside collections, each book has links to chapters and footnotes. The text is nicely formatted and seems to be complete and accurate - something that cannot always be said about inexpensive ebooks. I think these collections are great bargains both in terms of saved money, time, and book organization!

5-0 out of 5 stars All of his verse
... including some early drafts. with notes and indexed first lines and titles.

Lawrence was a master of word craft and metaphor, with the eye and vocabulary of a biologist. you'll need a good dictionary. one of my favorites is "Mountain Lion" where he's wandering in the high desert and happens on two hunters who had trapped and killed a cougar. Lawrence tracks back to the lions den, climbs up and stands at the cave entrance and describes what the lion saw from there. the last stanza ...

And I think in this empty world there was room for me and a mountain lion.
And I think in the world beyond, how easily we might spare a million or two of humans
And never miss them.
Yet what a gap in the world, the missing white frost-face of that slim yellow mountain lion!

5-0 out of 5 stars The vital sap
Lawrence began with imitative Georgian verse filled with archaic turns and cliched tropes. But influenced by Whitman he turned to a kind of free verse, and so began his long life in creating a vital poetry. Lawrence's poetry is the expression of his most initimate feelings. The poems which are most renowed are those which express his relation to nature,"The Snake" perhaps being the most well- known of them. He also has however especially towards the end , poetry which simply argues and derides those who oppose him.
His poetry becomes so ' free ' at time that it would seem closer to 'prose poetry' than Poetry itself.
His poems are short, and have sudden turns which may spring the lines to life.
I find however a shortcoming in what I would call a lack of 'memorable lines'.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Collection!
The collection of poems is great.The book is very complete and organized in a easyto read format.I'm really glad I bought this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars D.H.
I became acquainted with Lawrence's novels my sophomore year in college, and was hooked. A couple of years down the line, a professor recommended I take a look at his poetry, which he suggested was equally great, if not greater. He said he was like a British Whitman. Investigating the analogy, I came across this quote of Lawrence's: "Whitman, the great poet, has meant so much to me. Whitman, the one man breaking a way ahead. Whitman, the one pioneer. And only Whitman. No English pioneers, no French. No European pioneer-poets. In Europe the would-be pioneers are mere innovators. The same in America. Ahead of Whitman, nothing. Ahead of all poets, pioneering into the wilderness of unopened life, Whitman. Beyond him, none." Hyperbolic? Could be, and I'm admittedly a poor judge of poetry, much of it passing over my head, but there is more than enough in this hefty 1,000+ page paperback edition to convince me of Lawrence's greatness in verse. The book is split into "Rhyming poems," "Unrhyming poems," "Pansies," "Nettles," "Last poems" and "Uncollected poems." A couple of the shorter ones--
"There is a band of dull gold in the west, and say what you like
again and again some god of evening leans out of it
and shares being with me, silkily
all of twilight."
"Curiously enough, actual revolutions are made by robots,
living people never make revolutions,
they can't, life means too much to them."
"And people who talk about faith
usually want to force somebody to agree with them,
as if there was safety in numbers, even for faith."
"Angels are bright still, though the brightest fell.
But tell me, tell me, how do you know
that he lost any of his brightness in falling?
He only fell out of your ken, you orthodox angels,
you dull angels, tarnished with centuries of conventionality."

5-0 out of 5 stars "I want the finality of love.
Written in 1920 and often regarded as D. H. Lawrence's greatest novel, Women in Love is the complex story of two women and two men who scrutinize their lives and personal needs in an effort to discover something that makes the future worth living. The personal and social traumas of post-World War I, combined with the rise of industry and urbanization, have affected all four main characters, often at cross purposes as they explore love and its role in their lives. Intensely introspective and self-conscious, each character shares his/her thoughts with the reader, allowing the reader to participate in the inner conflicts and crises that each faces.

Ursula Brangwen, a teacher in a mining town in the Midlands, is attracted to Rupert Birkin, a school supervisor; her sister Gudrun, an artist whose sculptures have drawn some attention in London, is drawn to Gerald Crich, whose father is a mine owner. As the two women earn their living and consider the issue of marriage, which they regard as an impediment to their independence, the men deal with issues of sexuality and power, and whether the love of a woman is enough. Both men have homosexual urges which compete with their feelings for women.

Gerald is the most conflicted of the four. Taking over the mines upon the death of his father, he is fiercely committed to making them successful, even if that means hardening his heart toward his workers. He feels no sense of responsibility toward them, dedicating his efforts toward success and power, an attitude he conveys also toward Gudrun, who finds him self-centered but physically attractive. Rupert Birkin, who is eventually drawn to Ursula, is often thought to have been modeled on Lawrence himself, and his sensitivity, self-analysis, and feeling that love is not enough--that one must progress beyond love to another plane--display the kind of agonized soul searching done by many other young men of his age following the horrors of the world war.

Extremely complex in its exploration of the period's social and philosophical influences on the characters (who are archetypes of society), the novel is also full of symbolism, with many parallels drawn between love and death, which the characters sometimes prefer to life. As the love affairs of these four characters play out, filled with complications, disagreements about the meaning of love, questions about love's relation to power and dominance, and the role of sexuality, Lawrence projects the tumult of post-war England as the values of the past yield to newer, more personal goals.Mary Whipple

Two of D. H. Lawrence's most renowned novels-now with new packages and new introductions

Widely regarded as D. H. Lawrence's greatest novel, Women in Love continues where The Rainbow left off, with the third generation of the Brangwens. Focusing on Ursula Brangwen and her sister Gudrun's relationships-the former with a school inspector and the latter with an industrialist and then a sculptor-Women in Love is a powerful, sexually explicit depiction of the destructiveness of human relations. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars The worst book I've ever read
This book is so boring and where is the story! I picked this book for our book club.We've read some great booksKatherine by Anya Seton andThe Count of Monte Cristo (Penguin Classics) by Alexandre Dumas to name a few.I had such high hopes because of all the rave reviews.Plus, I wanted to read this because it is supposed to be "a classic" and I was looking for a book about love and women falling in love and the development of that relationship.Well, this book is sorta like that, but all I can say is...it is not a page turner.While reading, I kept waiting for the relationship between the sisters and their men to unfold.

Halfway through the book, I'm still waiting.I find the characters uninteresting and dull.It is like being a fly on the wall during their ordinary day when nothing much happens.It is very well written, but there's not a lot said.Don't bother reading this classic unless you have trouble sleeping at night and need a good sleep aide!I doubt I'll finish it.If I do, I'll write an update to this review....

5-0 out of 5 stars A Different Kind of War
D. H. Lawrence wrote WOMEN IN LOVE in 1916, when he was living in Cornwall, reviled for his pacifism and impoverished by prosecution of his previous book, THE RAINBOW, for pornography. Undaunted, Lawrence wrote a novel that virtually defies the war and continues to explore physical enjoyment as part of the relationship between men and women. But the physical is only a part of a prolonged psychological entanglement between the sexes that sometimes seems more a kind of warfare than traditional romantic courtship. The result is a challenging book, simultaneously of its time and out of it.

It is challenging in part because nobody's views are simple. Two sisters, Gudrun and Ursula Brangwen, become attracted to two men, coal-mining heir Gerald Crich, and his friend Rupert Birkin. Birkin, a school inspector, is based on Lawrence himself, and he strives towards various ideals that confuse even him and may be quite unrealizable in practice. Indeed, the book might as well be called "Men in Love," since Lawrence spends at least as much time with his two men, and there is the added complication of strong homoerotic overtones that climax in the nude wrestling scene so memorably captured in the 1969 Ken Russell movie. But while the women initially dance around their emotions almost as much as the men, in the end it is their comparative clarity that bring the two affairs to their respective conclusions.

In her fine novel ZENNOR IN DARKNESS, Helen Dunmore portrayed Lawrence in Cornwall shadowed by the First World War. It was a surprise, therefore to find that the war is never mentioned in Lawrence's own book. Although mostly set in the English Midlands, its cultural context is European. Its last hundred pages take place in Austria, and its characters seem to drop into untranslated French, Italian, and especially German with some ease. Lawrence himself had spent some time in Germany before the war and his wife Frieda was German; writing in 1916, his insistence on the commonality of the two cultures was a pacifist response to the belligerent nationalism around him. Yet there is a psychological sense of impending catastrophe, as though simplicity had fled from human relationships, and the quick pulse of this English summer will never return with quite that passion, quite that ease.

Lawrence is continental also in his artistic taste. He almost never mentions a female character without describing the colors of her clothes: hat, skirt, sash, and always colored stockings. The hues are brilliant, going together in subtle harmonies set off by bold accents. One thinks of Matisse and other then-contemporary European painters -- not surprisingly since Gudrun herself is an artist. There are important encounters with art at several points in the book: Birkin's London flat-mate, like Picasso before him, collects African carvings, and a German expressionist sculptor called Loerke will become important in the final chapters. Indeed the aesthetic of expressionism is central to the book; the characters do not just feel things, they feel them in brilliant color, and any one emotion may immediately be replaced by its exact opposite. So a character may feel love at one moment and intense hatred the next. Despite opening with a grimy image of cabbage stalks coated in coal dust and ending in the pristine brilliance of unbroken snow, the emotional world of this novel is a garish roller-coaster ride in a night-time fairground hung with colored lights.

And that is ultimately the problem. Lawrence is so intense in his descriptions, so devoid of half-tones, so prone to using sexual imagery to describe encounters that may have little or no physical component at all, that one soon loses one's bearings and becomes exhausted. About a third of the way through, Ursula kisses Birkin "to show him she was no shallow prude." There is a "rushing of passion" and "soon he was a perfect hard flame of passionate desire for her." In the next paragraph, "satisfied and shattered, fulfilled and destroyed," Birkin goes home. What on earth has happened? Perhaps not all one might think. There are plenty more such moments to come, for all four characters, and several returns to revulsion or even indifference, so that when Lawrence's metaphors actually do mean what they appear to indicate, it seems little more than we have heard before. Even with a writer famous for breaking the barriers of prudery, it can be hard almost a century later to extract the meaning of what he was actually saying.

Beyond the battlefront, war has a way of making us question moral and spiritual values. I found myself thinking of a very different writer, Ernest Hemingway, who in A FAREWELL TO ARMS plunged into the fighting that Lawrence utterly rejected. But he had that same fascination with obsessive self-examination that may ultimately say more about the period than who battled whom.

5-0 out of 5 stars The tortures of love and relationships stripped raw
I first read this book when required to in college.I did not appreciate it at all -I found it boring and hated it.However, since then I've lost track of how many times I've picked this book up in my life.Sometimes I re-read it in its entirety, and on others, only excerpts that were moving to me.This book is full of scenes and passages that are so pulling on emotions and stir such deep introspective thoughts that it's almost disturbing.

The story contains characters whose relationships are difficult to relate to, and yet, somehow are familiar at the same time.The passions are mostly emotional and under the surface even though there is sex and are lots of discussions about it.

In the very first chapter, one of the sisters, Gudren, feels "I shall know more of that man." From this scene on, it's torturous for both the characters and the reader as this is not a love story, but a story about what love does to people.

2-0 out of 5 stars Glad To Be Done With It
This classic by D.H. Lawrence has been on my to-be-read list for probably twenty years.The best thing I can say about it is that it is off my list, finished, and I can move on to reading something I will enjoy more!I got so bogged down in the middle, I almost abandoned the project.I persisted to completion more out of stubbornness than faith that it would improve.Indeed the actual ending of complete disillusionment could in itself have been powerful, I suppose, if I had ever been made to like the characters to begin with.

The book gets at least two stars from me for the opulent use of embroidered language.His vocabulary was outstanding and he applied words in unique ways.Here is a list he often employed: abject, ineffable, ignominiously, turgid, obsequiously, suffused, lambent, solicitous, supple, abominable, sinuous, indomitable, etc.But I'll never again read the words laconic, sardonic or furtive without thinking of this author as they were used so often I wanted to scream! Indeed, he seemed to intentionally reuse words in a way that it became impossible for me to offer the book at least three stars for his agile writing ability.

Here are some bits to give you the flavor:
"fatal exultation"
"ecstasy of reduction"
"flowers of mud"
"ineffable rift"
"rhapsodic intensity"
"the darkness of his loins"
"all life is a rotary motion"
"a milestone of lurking memories"
"he looked shining, like sun on frost"
"The most normal people have the worst subterranean selves."
"a hard metallic wakefulness"
"into the unfolded navel of eternal snow"
"the rabbit ran around the courtyard like a furry meteorite"
"possessions, possessions, bullying you and turning you into a generalization"
"You must leave your surroundings sketchy, unfinished, so you are never contained, never confined, never dominated by the outside."
"The greatest power is one that is subtle and adjusts itself, not one which blindly attacks."
"To desire is better than to possess."

This book is set in a town of miners, and there Lawrence mines the human psyche's disconnection with society.It was written in 1920, just after WWI, when there was emotional turmoil and a sense of the meaninglessness of life.This is coupled with the beginnings of women's liberation, in a backdrop of modernization and industrialization that tended to in-humanize people. It is an intensely introspective and self-conscious work of vacillating, selfish characters who do not do much but examine themselves. I found the obtuse lack of plot, without action or story development difficult, but could have embraced that if I agreed with the symbolism, the insights into human character, and the general themes portrayed.I do not consider marriage to be an impediment to independence as I am both married and independent, and I would definitely argue his overt parallels between love and death.This unnecessarily verbose, ill-titled book, was censored in its day which is presumably how it got it's fame, but it is tame by today's standards.At best, I can acknowledge this book with it's conspicuously lyrical, narcissistic style, as a period piece of inner searching and disillusionment, and important to the history of literature.

3-0 out of 5 stars Read The Cliff Notes And Move On
The title is a misnomer or possibly intended to be satirical. It could just have easily been entitled "Men In Love." Two sisters and their best friend suitors engage in a "battle of and between the sexes" set in pre-World War I Midlands England.

Riddled with symbolism and themes, the primary theme of the novel is defining what a committed, intimate relationship should entail--love, something less, something more, or something altogether different.

Birkin, one of the two male suitors, is Lawrence's alter ego. It is his position that he wants something on the other side of and beyond "love." He does not want "love-plus"; he wants something altogether different, something less human and bound by social mores. His stance sounds all noble and good. However, you soon realize that he is using it to justify marrying his chosen of the two sisters, Ursula, but have an ongoing intimate relationship with his best friend and suitor of the other sister. Forgive me, but I didn't buy it.

Many commentators comment that the prose style has not held up well over the years, is dated, and is hard to read. I agree. One piece of advice I would have given to the author: "Lose the adverbs."

The book is also famous for its censorship. Tame by today's standards, it does use flowery language that evokes an image of sex that is occurring in real-time, including between the two main male characters. That latter relationship probably sent the censors of the day over the top.

Sadly, while acknowledging its rightful importance in the history of English literature, I cannot recommend the book anymore than I would recommend reading Beowulf. Read the Cliff Notes and move on. ... Read more

Product Description
Because of his frank and honest portrayal of human sexuality in the controversial works for which he is best known, e.g. "Lady Chatterley's Lover" and "Women in Love", D. H. Lawrence was not widely respected in his day. In fact at the time of his death he was considered little more than a pornographer. However E. M. Forester challenged this portrayal calling Lawrence "The greatest imaginative novelist of our generation", and with his extended reflection upon the dehumanizing effects of modernity and industrialization, Lawrence has ultimately secured his position as one of the greatest writers in the English language. This great literary talent is exhibited by the short stories collected within this volume which includes the complete contents of the individual short story volumes "The Prussian Officer and Other Stories" and "England, My England" as well as four additional stories. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Selected Stories by D.H. Lawrence is an excellent collection of the author's best tales
D.H Lawrence (1885-1930) won fame for his novels such as "Sons and Lovers", "The Rainbow,"; "Women in Love," and Lady Chatterly's Lover" among others. He is also an excellent teller of tales as these sixteen stories exhibit. The stories are:
1. Love Among the Haystacks-Two brothers fight and love as they work among the haystacks of their family farm near Nottingham. Lawrence does well in his use of dialect in this Hardyesque tale.
2. The Miner at Home-Lawrence was the son of a miner and knows well the environment of a miner's home. In this very short tale a miner and his wife discuss the impending strike of workers at the mine site.
3. The White Stocking-The Whistons are a happily married newlywed couple until her former boss Sam Adams sends Mrs. Whiston gifts and notes. Will the couple remain together or separate? Another Lawrence tale of how a paradise can be quickly invaded by a snake!
4. Odor of Chrysanthemums-One of the saddest short stories in English Literature. It portrays a miner's wife learning of his death in an accident as she deals with her mother-in-law's grief and her mixed feelings towards her late wastrel husband.
5. New Eve and Old Adam-An Italian couple have a miserable sex life drifting apart. A tale of broken relationship in marriage.
6. Vin Ordinaire-Bachmann is a German soldier in World War I. He deserts and is captured but not before encountering a brief love affair.
7. The Prussian Officer (aka Honor and Arms" tells the story of a sadistic
Captain who torments an enlisted man in the German Army during World War There are homosexual hints throughout the story which ends in tragedy.

Product Description
In these impressions of the Italian countryside, Lawrence transforms ordinary incidents into passages of intense beauty. "Twilight in Italy" is a vibrant account of Lawrence's stay among the people of Lake Garda, whose decaying lemon gardens bear witness to the twilight of a way of life centuries old. In "Sea and Sardina", Lawrence brings to life the vigorous spontaneity of a society as yet untouched by the deadening effect of industrialization. And "Etruscan Places" is a beautiful and delicate work of literary art, the record of "a dying man drinking from the founts of a civilization dedicated to life." ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Judith Petres Balogh
The book was not quite what I expected. It did not add much to my store of knowledge, and did not sharpen my perceptions. It is one of those "must" books, which is generally thought to be of importance, and nobody dares argue with thedecree. I did not mind reading it, but I lacked the necessary enthusiasm for it.

2-0 out of 5 stars Ego overcomes environment
I could only read about 20 pages of this book, it was
not clear to me that Lawrence needed to leave England to
write this . The new Landscapes, villages, and people only
seem an excuse to get a never ending internal dialogue involving
his views and prejudices. I want a travel book to be like
good reporting, with the author only visible by the style of writing.
Joseph Mitchell is without peer in this method.

It might be more enjoyable if his views were not uniformly obvious or

5-0 out of 5 stars Thoughtful and Beautiful
These essays are classics. Etruscan Places almost single-handedly revived "modern" interest in the Etruscans and was essential to the preservation and study of their tombs and paintings. Throughout, Lawrence is sensitive and insightful. An added patina to these works is the fact that they were written in the 1930s during the build-up toward WWII. There is an immediacy mixed with nostalgia here that is compelling.

5-0 out of 5 stars Over the Alps with a stolen German girlfriend...
If i were to read only two travel books then this would be the second one, although both my wife and an English friend read it in German translation and reported that it was terrible. Maybe it doesn't translate well. Lawrence, as young man, describes a thread running through his life as he starts the journey by heading south toward Italy on foot from Bavaria with Frida, a way of travel that many Germans still understand very well. Descriptions of people are attractive, like the one-legged Italian who tried to seduce the cold, northern women at a dance. I liked best his description of his own Alpüberquerung, his description therein of the hurried English hiker, the way that Italins have ruined the alpine valleys with industrialization. And I felt loss at his growing distance from Frida. The book made me want to see the lemon and olive trees above Lago di Garda and the villages high above the lake, but we haven't done that in spite of our nearness to the region. Gardasee is completely overrun by German tourists now, not just by those wearing heavy hiking boots. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Collection
This book, bringing together all of H.D.'s poetry from her Imagist beginnings to her wartime "Trilogy," is a must have.For those who (like me) are novices with respect to modernist poetry, this presents a fantastic introduction.H.D.'s images have a richness and depth that I have not found elsewhere.Subject (poet as person) and object (metaphorical image) are so closely interwoven that one is instantly captivated by her presentations.This is particularly true of her use of Greek mythology - she resurrects ancient symbols in her own voice.Many of her images are simply breathtaking in their energy, depth, and beauty.This books is an essential read.

5-0 out of 5 stars H.D.: The Essential Imagist
For lovers of modernist literature, this tome is a must. Including her first published book and covering the period until (and through) her astounding achievement in her war Trilogy, the Collected Poems allows areader to fully get to know H.D. in all her many moods. Also includingpoetry from the period in which she was undergoing psychoanalysis withFreud, the poems give a full picture of H.D.'s talent and life. H.D. is apoet to be read with all the other, better known modernists: T.S. Eliot,D.H. Lawrence, et. al. Her beautiful work ranges from her early imagistwork to her more visionary, mythic poem cycles contained in the final partof her Collected Poems, in Trilogy. Breathtaking. ... Read more

If you love romantic passion...read this book; although it will take you back in time passion is still passion.

5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful novel
This is a novel you can lose yourself in, never mind any "notorious" tag due to its being one of the three versions of Lady Chatterley's Lover.This "second draft" of Lady Chatterley's Lover is actually much better than the final version.I didn't find it mawkish at all.It's about tenderness, so maybe that's why the other reviewer thought it was "mawkish".Don't look for sensationalism here, this novel is about how two people from different worlds fall in love. It's really superb.

5-0 out of 5 stars This brilliant �version� is a novel in its own right.
One of the most fascinating things about picking up a book is being able to immerse oneself in the author's world.If the book is a success, one inevitably wonders where such genius comes from, how it develops.Part ofthe pleasure of reading John Thomas and Lady Jane is, therefore, the way itallows us to glimpse the writer's creative process in the second of threedistinct stages in the formation of the idea of Lady Chatterley's Lover. It also allows us to see how D.H. Lawrence develops the various themes hereturns to again and again in his works:overcoming class barriers,discovering sensuality and passion--in the true, deep senses of thewords--and struggling against the brutally mechanical, cold world of modernday life.Yet the attractions of this novel are not limited to the ratheracademic analyses of how he gets from the rough first version to the finalversion of his notorious novel, Lady Chatterley's Lover.Though the plotis roughly developed in some places, almost mawkishly sentimental inothers, John Thomas and Lady Jane is truly a pleasure to read for thoseseeking reaffirmation of the fact that tenderness and compassion stillexist in this world, and that regardless of where, when and whom, it isalways possible for us to find a way of living that truly expresses andembodies who we really are. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful translation
This is one of the finest translations I've read, and this is because Dr. Rouse (the translator) doesn't bog it down with unnecessary stylization and ridiculously archaic English poetics (such as the uses of words like 'twain' instead of just saying two). The Iliad as well as the Odyssey were designed to be an enjoyable, more or less easy to understand didactic, and it's impossible to translate it in such a way that it mirrors what the ancient Greeks would have heard and understood. This is also supported by the fact that we will never be able to have as full of an appreciation of the works as the ancients, because we live in a different time with different belief and lifestyles. There are parts of this wonderful work that we will never fully appreciate nor understand.

So, why do I love this translation of it and rank it among my favourite translations? Because it is in a plain verse and in simple English. As I mentioned above, you won't be able to accomplish the same rhythm as Homer did while keeping the work in high quality. The languages are way too different from each-other. If you're looking for something that has that level of rhyme and melody, then I suggest you learn the ancient Greek and read it in that form. This work is pretty much a direct translation from the original, and the translator does not take too much poetic license when changing it around but uses his skill to piece it all together to make something that can, in essence, capture what was initially intended. I have translated a few poems myself, and it is a very labourious task to undertake when you're trying to do it right and capture the authors intentions.

The works of Homer were intended for a more natural flow, which I believe was beautifully accomplished here. Honestly, a lot of the more poetic translations put me to sleep and I can never finish them because they're so boring. This one really kept my attention.

How to approach this book, and other ancient Greek works:

There is a rather patronizing and, dare I say, religiocentric point of view that Homers stories and other epics were merely a work of fictional poetry. On the contrary, it is like the Bible for the ancient Greeks, as it contains a collection of stories that are designed to further ones own enlightenment in respects to veneration towards the gods and goddesses and to your fellow man, as well as other areas of life. One of my favourite examples of this is the scene where Odysseus and his men are trapped within the cave of their captor, the cannibalistic Polyphemos. Polyphemos represents the savagery of mankind, and it teaches the lesson of why one should exhibit proper manners towards guests (The blinding scene of ole Goggle-eye was a popular scene to have on serving vessels, which still makes me chuckle). Poseidon, subsequently, unleashes his wrath upon the crew for such a transgression towards his son (I, personally, thought that was ridiculous. It was one of those moments when you read something and have to say out-loud 'Are you kidding me, come on!'. Polyphemos was a total a-hole and deserved what he had coming to him, but I digress).
If one is to approach such stories as works of fiction, then you essentially miss-out on the true, deeper meaning of it all and why they were composed. Try to be open-minded while reading it and try putting yourself into their shoes, you'll get much more enjoyment out of it.

We purchased a used book that was rated as being in "Excellent Condition". In order to get one that is in excellent condition, we paid a little more than some of the other used books.It was not in poor condition; however, it was far from excellent condition. I was very disappointed.

Needed to buy the book as required reading for my daughter's English class.Book is kind of confusing and not her normal type of reading material.

5-0 out of 5 stars Deciding among translations?
This review only addresses one question: how do you decide which translation to read? There is no single 'best' translation. They're all different, and they all have some merits and some drawbacks. If you are buying for yourself, the best approach is to browse a bookstore first. Choose a particular incident, or the first or last page of any of the books of the Odyssey, and then read that page in all the translations you have before you. You can easily choose the one that reads best for you.
If you want to choose without the benefit of a personal test read, here are my comments on the Rouse translation. I first read it as a seventh grader. I loved it. I read it again in college or grad school, after having read other translations and eventually after having learned Greek. I still loved it. Lately my wife and I bought two volumes of a six-volume child's version translated by Mary Osborne, and our five year old loves it. I wanted to fill in the missing books and felt that since he loved Mary Osborne's translation, perhaps he would understand Rouse. He listens with rapt attention and needs no explanation.
This should give you an idea of some of the advantages of this translation.
If you want poetry, good; but be sure you like the poet you choose--it won't be Homer unless you learn Greek. Nothing I've ever learned has been as rewarding as Greek. Homer is among the top five poets and story-tellers known to man.

3-0 out of 5 stars No to Prose

It was Sett's reputation as "The Boy Outlaw" that killed his family. But he'd been paying for the last 14 years--now it was time to settle the score. The men who murdered his family were still in town, looking for the gold rumored to be hidden on the Fosters' Montana homestead. They thought they were immune from the law. But they didn't know that Settler was ready to deal them his own brand of justice. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars H.D. being H.D.
I have a love/hate relationship with H.D. - I lack her enthusiasm forGreek and Egyptian mythology (I'd rather move a bit further to theSoutheast) but I appreciate what she does with the mythology.Thus I amnever quite sure to what audience I can recommend her.

The second piecein this book, "The Wise Sappho" is a meditation on the poetry ofSappho - a poetic meditation.If you have read Sappho, this is a must readpiece as both Sappho and H.D. are talismen of the feminist strand ofpoets.

The first piece "Notes on Thought and Vision" needs tobe placed in time.H.D. speaks of her discovery of a higher level ofconsciousness, a level she refers to as jelly-fish mind as she imagines itas a jelly-fish above us (for brain consciousness) or beside us (for wombconsciousness) with tenacles into our body.Her examples come primarilyfrom art, Greek mythology or "the Galilean" (Jesus).Shespecifically includes scientists among those dependent upon this jelly-fishconsciousness.However, she cautions that body and mind are not to beneglected.Her description of her experience serves as an importantinsight into her poetry and prose and as one ray into understanding theliterary circle in which she roamed e.g. Ezra Pound.

4-0 out of 5 stars Delicate, Not Brittle by Padma J. Thornlyre
At her best, H.D. (Hilda Doolittle) is a poet. Her novels all display a poet's sense of immediacy, but are sometimes confusing for their interior "scapes" which are frequently all too fluid. Her poetry, however, directs the "flow" deliberately and masterfully. "Notes on Thought and Vision" is a rare example (like Nikos Kazantzakis's "The Saviors of God") wherein the distinction between poetry and prose evaporates. These "Notes" are intimate and compelling, watery and feminine, mystical and yet (strangely) earthy--composed of octopus, seaweed, and salt. Her language is delicate, but not brittle, her point of view keenly sensitive but never timid. "Notes" is an intelligent reflection on the sub- or un-conscious, and on the source(s) of poetic inspiration, from the only person, male or female, who ever wrote openly of her experience as Sigmund Freud's patient (see H.D.'s "Tribute to Freud"). "Notes on Thought and Vision" is a short book (and a small one), which contains a very large message that celebrates the feminine and the divine as one and the same. A must-read for any woman who seeks to explore her creativity and for any man who seeks his own "anima". ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars its okey
If you have don't know what is hypnosis and NLP, this book maybe good for you to go into these topic. Good to read anyway, but not worth to own one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Challenging study but worth it.
This book is a bit loaded with linguistic jargon, but the contribution to NLP is so big it HAS to merit full marks. The concepts behind Erickson's language have been adopted in life coaching as well as NLP and hypnosis, and some brilliant guys, among them Paul McKenna and Anthony Robbins, owe much of their success to Erickson's work.

I feel the jargon and detail are essential to cover the subject properly. There is a big cross-over with English language study, and a study of grammar and syntax in particular can enable you to get more out of this book.

Awareness of the use of language in terms of Bandler and Grinder's 'Milton Model' leads to a greater understanding of how people receive your words - it's no wonder that Ross Jeffries jumped on the idea for 'speed seduction'. It can also be used to word propositions in the most amenable manner, and I use it a lot when teaching simply because I want students to feel they are working because they WANT to learn rather than because they HAVE to. The NLP presupposition, choice is better than no choice, expresses the philosophy behind this in a nutshell, Erickson took this to a higher level.

The analysis of presuppositions is useful; the most useful everyday application is that you'll be able to sniff out manipulation a mile off.

It's a tough book to study, but will give you a much better idea of how syntax affects response.

Quick update: I've just read the most amazing book on how the structure of language - as in grammar - is used in communication. Do look at Making Sense of Grammar.

Editorial Review

Product Description
At the heart of Death and the Author is a dramatic account of D. H. Lawrence's desperate struggle against tuberculosis during his last days, and of certain, often bizarre events which followed his death. Around this narrative David Ellis offers a series of reflections about what it is like to have a disease for which there is no cure, the appeal of alternative medicine, the temptation of suicide for the terminally ill, the diminishing role of religion in modern life, the institution of famous last words, the consequences of dying intestate, and so on. These are clearly not the most immediately appealing of topics but they have an obvious significance for everyone and the treatment of them here is by no means lugubrious (even if, in the nature of the case, most of the jokes fall into the category of gallows humor). Lawrence is the main focus throughout but there are extended references to a number of other famous literary consumptives such as Keats, Katherine Mansfield, Kafka, Chekhov or George Orwell. Not a long book, Death and the author is divided into three parts called "Dying," "Death" and "Remembrance" and is made up of twenty-two short sections. Although it incorporates a good deal of original material, the annotation has been kept deliberately light. The aim has been to combine the drama of events--a good story--with a consideration of matters which must eventually concern us all, and to present the material in a lively and accessible form. ...

Product Description
Eight tales of unease from one of the finest English writers of the 20th century

D. H. Lawrence wrote a large body of work as an author, poet, playwright, essayist and literary critic. His most famous (perhaps infamous) work was 'Lady Chatterley's Lover' and among his other highly regarded novels are 'Women in Love,' 'Sons and Lovers,' 'The Rainbow' and 'The Plumed Serpent.' Lawrence's focus on human sexuality may have brought about a scandal and an undeserved reputation as a pornographer, but nevertheless upon his death E. M. Forster referred to him as 'the greatest imaginative novelist of our generation.' Lawrence's huge capacity for writing fortunately guided him towards many subjects including a concise and exquisitely crafted collection of shorter works concerning ghosts, hauntings, dark places and macabre scenarios within which his often troubled characters must live. This special Leonaur collection-by an unusual exponent of the genre-includes 'Glad Ghosts,' 'Smile,' 'The Last Laugh,' 'The Lovely Lady,' 'The Man who Died,' 'The Border Line,' 'Sun,' 'The Woman who Rode Away' and the highly regarded classic, 'The Rocking Horse Winner.' Available in softcover and hardback with dust jacket for collectors. ... Read more
