In the judgment of many, Lawrence's expansive genius found its happiest expression within disciplined limits, for in his short stories and short novels his powers are never weakened by the repetitions which mar some of his longer works. As a short-story writing, Lawrence at his best was unexcelled.

"With my body I thee worship."

Since the Age of Enlightenment, we in the West have believed ourselves and our "minds" to be separate and distinct from our physical bodies, and our bodies to be separate from spirit. Lawrence makes these forces dance in a triangle in this collection.

New to me is his ghost stories - many of these pieces carry supernatural themes. Not every story is a great success, and the themes of marital and family strife, unfulfilled women, and masculine idealism can feel repet...more
Generally speaking, I really, really like Lawrence, but generally speaking, I also don't really care for short stories that much. Lawrence has some powerful stories in this collection, but also some that I just didn't understand or enjoy, and a few that suffer from some fairly blatant racism or, more commonly, sexism. Overall, I liked this volume, but not as well as volumes 1 or 2 (although I would probably have to reread 1 and 2 to figure out which one was better).
I was lucky to find this at an used book store. Maybe I will stumble across volumes 1, 2, and 4 in the future to make this set of stories complete.
