(p.38) Chapter 2 Still Life and Women in Love
Circulating Genius: John Middleton Murry, Katherine Mansfield and D. H. Lawrence

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter contains an intertextual reading of Murry's Still Life and Lawrence's Women in Love. It considers the ways that Murry's ambivalent friendship with Lawrence is reflected in Women in Love. Using both the first and final versions of Women in Love, this chapter analyses Lawrence's changing interpretations of the homosocial/homosexual relationship between Gerald Crick and Rupert Birkin and argues that they evoke some of the traumatic incidents that occurred during Murry and Mansfield's visit to the Lawrences in Cornwall in 1916.

Keywords:   Lawrence, Women in Love, Still Life, Cornwall, Homosocial, Homosexual
