Re: C C T

Thank you sir. It is, or, rather they are of my great interest because I teach the senior classes of Literature in the univ.

Dear Aba...

I enjoyed your take. I some what identified with the take on women struggles. As I have said my upbringing was a mixture of Victorian and 1950's upbringing. perhaps I spent most of my life like the heroin looking for my way for something more...

Very well documented, I guess you try to get into the mind of the author. Hard work I imagine unless it is of great interest.

Re: Aba Brother

Firstly, thank you my dear sis for your fine observations. No, that wasn't my take coz I thought such queries may arise, so I have now somewhat altered the meaning of 'modernist' in early 20th century England and America. They were just coming out of the Victorian phase where, women were considered inferiors, their jobs being finding a good husband and rearing children, the class-differences too, were prominently practised and prided at. Now, from our perspective of modern age, those times seem ancient. Those writers were trying to do just these, ... equal rights and equal opportunities to make for the emancipation of women folk. So, you are perfectly right in your assessment.

Aba Brother

Wow! And the rainbow is the symbol of Gay Pride here in the US and I imagine, elsewhere. And the story goes it was taken from the song, Somewhere Over the Rainbow, in Wizard of Oz. Hmm? Regardless, I did read Lady Chatterley's Lover many years ago, and thought it a good read. I think, from what you write here, that Lawrence's thoughts and writings also apply to women. Women have individual choices and must develop potential, not to mention all of their other tasks. It's actually harder for a woman to be all that she can be, AND manage a home, a family, and children, if that is the case. On may think Lawrence was a bit obsessed with men and their trials and tribulations in the world. Or is that your point? LOL. Very good, Aba dear brother.
