A Criticism on D. H. Lawrence’s Thoughts of Sex



As one of the most controversial writers in the twentieth century, D. H. Lawrence’s works’ being banned is closely related to his sexual description. His intention of creation is out of a kind of pure ideal of emancipating mankind from a kind of ossified state. And he makes some quests on the relationship between the two sexes. And he also ponders over sex. Yet, the traditional morality and readers’ response should not be neglected. Lawrence’s sufferings originate from his going astray in life exploration. The outlet of mankind doesn’t lie in sex. To make mankind own a brighter future, one can only depend on valuing morality, safeguarding morality and uplifting morality.
