What is most important about a novel like St. Mawr? The horse-symbol which dominates both the novel and this thesis? The "doctrine of spontaneity" which Lawrence espoused and wrote about on almost every page of the short novel? Or simply the fact that Lawrence's language is as spontaneous and powerful as the natural world of which he wrote? All of these are St. Mawr, and all are, to some degree, reflected in this thesis. Also reflected in this thesis is my admiration both for the works of Lawrence and for the man himself--and they are really one in the same.
