This is perhaps the only comparative study of Emily Bronte and D. H. Lawrence to date. It largely tries to do two things. First, it views the novels of Bronte and Lawrence as part of a European stream of protest against an idealistic civilization that exalts the spirit and degrades the body. To this stream also belong thinkers like Rousseau, Nietzsche, Freud and, in our times, Norman O. Brown and Theodore Roszak. Secondly, this Book takes the position that Bronte is pre eminently Lawrence's precursor. If the sense of non-human in humanity is the distinguishing feature of Lawrence's ceuvre (as he stated in his famous letter to Garnett), Bronte anticipates him even more than Hardy."What unites the philosophical writings of Rousseau, Nietzsche and Freud with the novels of Lawrence and Emily Bronte is their strong sense of the self and the belief affirmed with varying digress of emphasis that it is rooted in the body. Also, their dissatisfaction with western civilization stems from the realization that it negates the self. In fact, the violence and destructiveness of western civilization is seen by almost all of them to result from its denial of the body. Also, while no one exactly advocates a return to nature, not even Rousseau, they may be called primitivists in that they believe that primitive man was superior to 'Civilized' man since he lived a richer psychic life."Printed Pages: 128.
