Dame Daphne Winkworth/Hilda Gudgeon:
You know, Jessie, I've always loved my mother ... I've loved her like a. lover.
Oh, mother-in-law, you understand, as my mother finally understood, that a man doesn' ask for love from his wife, but strength.
Do the women in D. H. Law rence's novels reflect the possessive love of his mother, the shortlived affair with his first sweetheart Jessie, and the turbulent passion of his marriage with Frieda von Richtofen? An examination of what Lawrence demanded of women, what he blamed them for, and what, more rarely, he praised them for, illustrated from his novels, letters and poems.
