DH Lawrence on Trees, Solitudes and What Roots Us
A supreme challenge of human life is reconciling the longing to fulfill
ourselves in union, in partnership, in love, with the urgency of
fulfilling ourselves according to our own solitary and sovereign laws.
Writing at the same time as Hesse, living in exile in the mountains,
having barely survived an attack of the deadly Spanish Flu that claimed
tens of millions of lives, the polymathic creative force D.H. Lawrence
(September 11, 1885-March 2, 1930) took up the question of this
divergent longing with great subtlety and splendor of insight in his
autobiographically tinted novel 'Aaron's Rod', rooting the plot's
climactic relationship resolution in a stunning passage about trees.
