停滞を嫌い、変化を求め続けた作家、D・H・ロレンス。内なる攻撃性を人間愛へと昇華させた、彼の人生を貫く思想を解く。(本文英文)


In this study,Miyo Oyama shows how D.H.Lawrence,an English Modernist novelist,devoted himself to revealing the positive value of aggression,which he considered as a vital energy of ‘dynamic consciousness’in the bodies of human beings.
Lawrence by no means wished to create an offensive society.The aggressiveness which he encourages his readers to awaken is a reaction against what he regarded as the vicious practices of modernized society,and its energy enables human beings to live by their bodily instinct or intuition instead of mind.Lawrence’sunique works are thus filled with the dynamism of conflicts and regeneration which work to realize a new form of connection in human relationships paralyzed by class hierarchy.To replace stability with motion was crucial to recreating relationships with a new recognition and acceptance of the other, and this was what Lawrence attempted through his works.
Oyama analyzes approximately twenty essays and works of fiction by Lawrence,including minor short stories as well as novels,and reveals his thinking by comparing it with the ideas of a wide range of 20th-century philosophers and psychoanalysts.
The study further shows that the dynamic energy which fills the text operates as a reaction against the existing cognitive framework,which was rationally and historically constituted,and thus produces a contrastingly radical approach toward peace and humanity.
