Circulating Genius: John Middleton Murry, Katherine Mansfield and D. H. Lawrence

This chapter analyses Murry's relationship with Lawrence after Mansfield's death. It looks at Murry's involvements with women after Mansfield's death, in particular, with Frieda Lawrence, and describes the controversy resulting from an incident at the Café Royal in 1923. Murry's reviews of Lawrence's novels and his two books about him: Reminiscences of D. H. Lawrence and Son of Woman are examined in this chapter. The encoded allusions to Lawrence's sexual difficulties in Son of Woman contributed to Murry's notoriety because of their allusions to Lawrence's suppressed homosexuality.

Keywords:   Lawrence, Frieda Lawrence, Café Royal, Son of Woman, Homosexuality, Sexuality, Novels
