(p.137) Chapter 7 The Things We Are
Circulating Genius: John Middleton Murry, Katherine Mansfield and D. H. Lawrence

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter analyses Murry's second novel, The Things We Are, which is examined in relation to his negative response to the publication of Lawrence's Women in Love. It also describes Murry's treatment of the malaise of modernity that suggests parallels with T. S. Eliot's The Waste Land. The references to psychoanalysis and interpretation of dreams suggest the influence of Sigmund Freud.
