    schema:reviewBody ""In D. H. Lawrence and Survival Ronald Granofsky argues that Lawrence employed ideas based on evolution in his fiction, particularly during the transition between his "marriage" and "leadership" periods (1919-22) when he embarked on a major rethinking of the direction of his creative work, and that these ideas contributed to the deterioriation in his fiction after Women in Love." "Lawrence's deliberate use of Darwinian elements in his narrative strategy occurred at a time when he was increasingly concerned about survival, both personally, due to illness, and artistically. The result in his fiction is a subtext in which his anxieties are projected onto female characters and the evolutin of his writing is frustrated by unresolved emotional conflicts. Through new readings of the major fiction of Lawrence's transitional period, Granofsky demonstrates that Lawrence's deterioration as a writer and the misogyny of his later work were primarily the result of a deliberate effort on his part to move the ideological yardsticks of his fiction."--BOOK JACKET." ;
