But even in these blighted, neglected landscapes, the possibility of renewal always presents itself: there is hope for these places and the characters w… more

D. H. Lawrence: Future Primitive

The same theme runs through all his work, beginning with his very first novel, The White Peacock, and ending with the last line of his final book, Apocalypse. Always it is nature.
