D. H. Lawrence - Selected Poems

D. H. Lawrence – Selected Poems

 

This is one of the more interesting poetry collections that I’ve read of late – Lawrence, the man who’s best-known for Lady Chatterley’s Lover and Sons and Lovers, is an excellent poet, as well as a strong writer. Here, we watch him develop from a youngster who dabbled with rhyming poetry to a cynical old man, who wrote in free verse and used his art to show his disdain for the world.

In fact, I never knew that Lawrence was such a gifted poet, able to cover all sorts of subjects with a flair. I’ll leave you with one of his short poems, ‘New Houses, New Clothes‘, to illustrate my point:

New houses, new furniture, new streets, new clothes, new sheets
Everything new and machine-made sucks life out of us
And makes us cold, makes us lifeless
The more we have.
