º Pansies: Poems by D. H. Lawrence Ü Download by ë D.H. Lawrence D H Lawrence S Best Known Collection Of Poems The Title Does Not Refer To Flowers, But Is Derived From The French Pensees, Meaning Thoughts Thoughts Which, According To Lawrence In His Introduction, Come As Much From The Heart And The Genitals As From The Head In The Foreword D H Lawrence Writes I Wish These Pansies To Be Taken As Thoughts Rather Than Anything Else Casual Thoughts That Are True While They Are True And Irrelevant When The Mood And Circumstance Changes I Should Like Them To Be As Fleeting As Pansies, Which Wilt So Soon, And Are So Fascinating With Their Varied Faces, While They Last



I enjoyed this collection, particularly the poem I Am in a Novel, which Lawrence wrote in response to his friend Aldous Huxley writing him as a character Mark Rampion in Point Counter Point Lawrence s feelings about money, property, sexuality, and gender are fully on display, and you can really tell how low he was when writing this collection A necessary read for any self respecting Lawrence fan.
