D. H. Lawernce and the Poetics of Solar Plexus

Auther : Ram A. Yadav

Lawrence deserves study not only as a novelist. Poet or critic but also as a father of poetics. Derived from Solar Plexus, its sensations, pulsation’s and vibrations, Lawrence’s poetics is neither an introduction to his poetry nor a conclusion of his criticism but an independent effort to theorize and to re-affirm the central creed of his life, i.e. the wholeness of being or the marriage of contraries. Both as a theorizing on poetry and as a reflection on poets, it reveals the dark nocturnal nature of Lawrence’s essentially instinctual speculations. As a matter of fact, Lawrence’s dark speculations give him a status similar to Aristotle, the author of the famous Poetics. Lawrence, however, chooses to create a poetics of his own, sui generis, on patterns of Aristotle without following Aristotle’s rigorous and logical methods. Being’a man with a daimon he in fact develops the dictates of his dark, inner self into the formidable doctrines of a poetics. In the process, however, Lawrence shows signs of doctrinal deficiencies and quite naturally. His daimon never left him completely free to theorize and systematize. Despite doctrinal deficiencies, Lawrence’s poetics is interesting and even innovative because it contains enough intuitive insights into the real name and nature of real poetry.
