“The Rocking-Horse Winner” and “Second Choice” by D.H. Lawrence

In my mind, Lawrence can write relationships like no one can. His characters are so well defined and the interactions they have are so real to life. Perhaps it’s because he lived his life “free from the shackles of civilization.” As one of his friends said, “…he did nothing that he did not really want to do, and all that he most wanted to do he did. He went all over the world, he owned a ranch, he lived in the most beautiful corners of Europe, and met whom he wanted to meet and told them that they were wrong and he was right. He painted and made things, and sang, and rode. He wrote something like three dozen books, of which even the worst page dances with life that could be mistaken for no other man’s.” Enjoy!
