5)舒is the rhetoric of the new encapsulated, uninhibited self and a kind of promiscuous sexuality that for Lawrence covers over the soul舗s isolation and deep hunger for connection through the body. If Connie is overly 舠free舡 with her sexuality so that she doesn舗t experience real feeling at all, Clifford, her husband, is literally paralyzed; his suffering in World War I has caused an evacuation of feeling, leading to more suffering, and eventually to a destructive overgrowth of ego and power. Lawrence makes no bones about the metaphorizing of his physical condition: 舠He was, in some paralyzing way, conscious of his own defenselessness, though he had all the defense of privilege.

A life in which the only riches is integrity of character. So that each one may fulfill his own nature and deep desires to the utmost, but wherein the ultimate satisfaction and joy is in the completeness of us all as one.... And this shall be the new hope: that there shall be a life wherein the struggle shall not be for money or for power, but for individual freedom and common effort towards good.... It is communism based, not on poverty but on riches, not on humility but on pride, not on sacrifice but upon complete fulfillment in the flesh of all strong desire.

Lawrence become as the author of a 舠pornographic舡 novel that appeared to endorse adultery (and worse, cross-class adultery of a lady with her husband舗s servant) that British police confiscated an edition of his poems called Pansies and raided an exhibition of his paintings in 1929, confiscating many. Disgusted, he was unwilling to return to his native country and died of tuberculosis in France with Frieda by his side in 1930. During his lifetime Lawrence had been a figure of great controversy, hailed by many literati and readers as a genius, condemned by others as immoral, undisciplined at best, and pathological at worst.
