D. H. Lawrence and submerged cultures in Birds, beasts and flowers
This thesis focuses on D. H. Lawrence's collection of poetry Birds, Beasts and Flowers and the manner with which Lawrence treats the submerged cultures of Etruscans, Aztecs, American Indians and Women. These common topics of Lawrence's work have been studied but not fully understood. This thesis attempts to understand how Lawrence was affected by these cultures and how they function for Lawrence on a personal and essential level. This study illustrates how studying his poetry helps in better understanding both Lawrence and his other works. Lawrence's feelings and thoughts in this personal poetry shed new light on his treatment of these cultures and the criticism on Lawrence and his work.
