Course Description:

Lawrence had complicated views regarding women's sexuality and the ways women were able to express it in society. To some he seems ahead of his time even suggesting that women have sexual drive; to others he seems misogynistic in depicting women's sexuality as passively awaiting a “real” man's invitation to blossom; and yet, to others he seems indecent in his explicit and pornographic depictions of women's sexuality. Lawrence's views on marriage are equally complex. In this course, we'll read and analyze for ourselves two of Lawrence's provocative works: the short story, “Odour of Chrysanthemums,” and the novel, "Lady Chatterley's Lover."
