2-0 out of 5 stars A TEDIOUS SIMPLE TALE
THIS SHORT, SIMPLE TALE IS TYPICAL OF LAWRENCE. A MARRIED MAN--A MUSICIAN-- UNHAPPY IN HIS MARRIAGE, HAS AN AFFAIR WITH HIS STUDENT. THEN HE CANNOT FACE HIS FAMILY AND COMMITS SUICIDE. AFTER HIS SUICIDE, LIFE GOES ON. HIS FAMILY SUCCEED WITHOUT HIM, AND HIS YOUNG MISTRESS FINDS ANOTHER MAN TO LOVE HER.
ITS IS SIMPLE AND PREDICTABLE. THE BULK OF THE PIECE DESCRIBES THE DAYS IN WHICH THE LOVERS SPEND SOME DAYS TOGETHER, ALONE,AT THE SEASHORE, ENJOYING LOVE AND NATURE.IT IS BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN, BUT I FOUND IT TIRESOME AFTER A WHILE. LAWRENCE WRITES NOVELS OF PURE POETRY, BUT THE TALE DID NOT KEEP ME INTERESTED. IF I WANT POETRY, I'LL READ IT!

3-0 out of 5 stars Lawrence feels too Impressionable
The Trespasser is the tragic tale of Siemund, a music teacher with an unhappy family life, and his student, who becomes his lover.It isn't a worthless book, but your time would definately be better spent reading oneof the famous Lawrence books - this is clearly the creation of a young,impressionable mind.For instance, Lawrence makes constant reference toWagner's 'Ring' in the book, rubbing the reader's nose profusely inheavyhanded hints that Siemund is borrowed from the German composer's work. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Collection of Stories
The collection of short stories I read in "The Prussian Officer and Other Stories" were a good selection of what life was like in Nottingham, where the author was born.D.H. Lawrence's pieces like "Odour of the Chrysanthemums" and "The Daughters of the Vicar" reflect on his childhood and the city he lived in.The reader has that feeling that reminds them of their town and the people that lived there.The people in his stories have some influence on what their lives were like.
I read some of the pieces in class and actually found myself immersed into them.The use of dialogue, details of the countryside, and the tensions between class, gender, and sexuality.Reading these pieces I grew to appreciate literature and its structure.

3-0 out of 5 stars Lawrence in short form.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Prussian Officer and Other Stories by D. H. Lawrence. Edited by John Worthen with an introduction and notes by Brian Finney. Recommended.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
In The Prussian Officer and Other Stories, D. H. Lawrence explores in short story form the themes that dominate many of his best-known novels. "The Daughters of the Vicar," for example, echoes both Women in Love and Sons and Lovers, where one relationship is out of balance and the other shows some promise, and where a son is in near-complete subjection to his mother-even after her death. The question left unanswered at the end of "Daughters" is whether collier Alfred Durant will be any more successful at forming a lasting relationship with Louisa than artist Paul Morel was. The answer would seem to be "yes" since he and Louisa are to be married soon-although in the other stories, marriage does not mean a meaningful or lasting relationship has been achieved. It's up to reader speculation whether they will end up like the couple in "The White Stocking" or the couple in "The Odour of Chrysanthemums."

Lawrence's world is focused on dominance and subjection, whether sexual, social, or economic, and the resulting imbalances. For all their social loftiness, the vicar's family is as poor or poorer than the uneducated colliers whom coal mining (ironically) elevates economically if not socially. As in the mines, there is a going down and coming up of the classes, with the declining rural gentry no better off than the rising class of miners and their managers. Lawrence experienced the mixing of these disparate groups in his own family, with his educated and domineering mother and his ignorant and brutal father. It's not difficult to find the origins of Elizabeth and Walter Bates in "The Odour of Chrysanthemums." In this story, Lawrence overtly articulates the alienation the wife feels from her husband, once death has given her the objective distance to realise it.

While compelling, this story demonstrates what I believe is Lawrence's predominant weakness-a heavy handedness of the author's voice in the narration of thought. Across all the stories (and the novels), his characters have similar thoughts and reactions, often expressed in similar terms that seem unlikely and unnatural for those particular characters. In many cases, you could lift entire sentences and even passages with little revision and transplant them seamlessly into any of his other stories or novels. While most critics, better informed than I about Lawrence's social and cultural milieu and his artistic intent, understand this as part of his "metaphysic," I find it artificial and tiresome. Reading so many stories together in a compressed time period highlights their similarities in theme, tone, and point of view.

As an example, this passage sounds less like the voice of the wife of a dead collier and than that of Lawrence himself: "There were the children-but the children belonged to life. This dead man had nothing to do with them. He and she were only channels through which life had flowed to issue in the children." At a certain level, many of Lawrence's characters have no voice that is recognizable as their own-only as his. They are in subjugation to his dominance, which burdens and overwhelms this collection.

Two stories that stand out are set in the military: "The Prussian Officer" (originally "Honour and Arms") and "The Thorn in the Flesh." In the former, a young orderly revenges himself on his rigid and sexually sadistic captain, then dies blindly to restore the balance. In the latter, the runaway soldier and his country servant girlfriend find spiritual elevation and detachment from their mundane concerns in their sexual unification. They are free to face the repercussions of their respective transgressions with indifference. "A Fragment of Stained Glass" is memorable for its medieval setting, sadism, and eeriness, but is flawed by a particularly weak ending that adds nothing and detracts from the tale's previous tone.

The Prussian Officer and Other Stories is a must for anyone interested in Lawrence and his development. Most of these stories are unforgettable, partly because of their symbolism and partly because they integrate pieces of Lawrence's overarching metaphysic. As a side note, my favourite Lawrence story-indeed, one of my favourite short stories by any author-is not part of this collection: the haunting "The Rocking-Horse Winner."

The Prussian Officer is a well-written moving piece based on the emotional effects of conforming to military discipline. Attention to detail is superb. Other stories in this collection are of the same quality. I recommend this be added to your todo list.

1-0 out of 5 stars never sent!
I ordered this book and it was never sent.I replied to the sender and they said they would look into this and I have nothing since.

2-0 out of 5 stars Only for Lawrence die-hards
This was Lawrence's first published novel in the UK, and represents the writer's early experiment in the quest for an established style.

Far too much descriptive detail, and too little narrative, to be considered anenjoyable read. It is however interesting to note the early appearance ofthemes that were to dominate later Lawrence works. In particular, thenature-civilisation dichotomy, which became a Lawrence trademark, isapparent here in the relationship between the cultured, educated narratorand his best friend, the raw-boned but affable farmer, George.

Readerswishing to introduce themselves to Lawrence would be better advised tostart with thebook published two years later, and that marked thebeginning of his literary reputation: "Sons and Lovers" ... Read more

Product Description
THE LITTLE TOWN AT EVENING

THE chime of the bells, and the church clock

striking eight

Solemnly and distinctly cries down the babel

of children still playing in the hay.

The church draws nearer upon us, gentle and great

In shadow, covering us up with her grey.

Like drowsy children the houses fall asleep

Under the fleece of shadow, as in between

Tall and dark the church moves, anxious to keep

Their sleeping, cover them soft unseen.

Hardly a murmur comes from the sleeping brood,

I wish the church had covered me up with the rest

In the home-place. Why is it she should exclude

Me so distinctly from sleeping with those I love best? ... Read more

Product Description

The Widowing of Mrs. Holroyd, written immediately after Sons and Lovers, is one of D. H. Lawrence's most significant early works. The play, Lawrence's first, is the alter ego of the story "Odour of Chrysanthemums" and, like the short story, deals with a catastrophe in the lives of a coal mining family. Drawing upon the intensity of events that unfold in the miner's kitchen, the play explores a marriage bowed under the weight of a husband's drinking and infidelity and peers into the strange, burgeoning relationship between the neglected wife, Mrs. Holroyd, and the young electrician in whom she seeks emotional refuge. First published in 1914, The Widowing of Mrs. Holroyd is a bare tracing of the ways in which a marriage has gone wrong.
