    1 thought on “The Horse Dealer's Daughter

    1. This is how easy it is for a man to fall in love. He is alone with a woman. Not ugly, or too old, or very young, but he had never checked her out before, had never thought of even flirting with her. But they are alone. And the woman cries and tells him she loves him. Or that likes him, and she doesn't cry but smiles. And he smells her, and feels her, and absorbs her body heat, her hair tickling his facial skin. So he says he loves her too.The horse dealer's daughter lifted her face to the young [...]

    2. Not entirely too much happens, but I must admit that I sincerely appreciate Lawrence's writing. It may not be his finest text, but it's probably the first time I was able to take notice of what talent he has. There is, after all, a reason his writing has been canonized.

    3. When Mabel is on the porch with her brothers, she continuously ignores their questions: “The girl did not answer.” “The girl did not move a muscle.” “There was no answer.” “This was received by silence.” Her silence continues as the brothers discuss their crucial situation and their future living arrangements. “But she made no answer. There was silence of futility and irritation in the room.” “The face of the young woman darkened, but she sat immutable.” “There was sile [...]

    4. Mabel might have become, in about 25 pages of literature, one of the most annoying characters I have EVER read about impressive achievement. A posh rich girl who cannot swallow her own pride and do a job that will support her family decides it will be "better to die than to do any peasant jobs." She then proceeds to attempt suicide, admittedly something I wasn't devastated about, to only be saved by the courageous doctor risking his own life for this impudent, cynical, spoiled brat of a girl to [...]

    5. D. H. Lawrence has got to be an author with one of the most unique writing styles I've ever read. The other day I'd been reading up on Freud, who is hands-down the horniest psychologist in the history of psychology. But to have sensuality in the way that Lawrence portrays it, with the main female protagonist pressing her chest against "his thighs his knees, his legs" is quite something. Interesting will be checking up on Lawrence another day.

    6. A beautiful story that reads as an allegory for Christ's love for his followers. I read this for Apocrypha and Christian Scriptures: Biblical Backgrounds to English Literature. Mabel and Doctor Ferguson both embody Christ, one being the unexpected and somewhat hesitant martyr, the other the conventional healer.

    7. More than a little strange, more than a little confusing, a little more than simply weird. Perhaps I'm too stupid to understand the higher form of this but those couple of pages were struggle to get through.

    8. Historia de una soltera que busca hacer su vida yun joven doctor.La baja autoestima de ella y losprejuicios sociales de él atentan contra la promesade boda.Buen estilo pero un poco culebrón.Pendientemás de este autor.

    9. Structurally confusing and altogether cliche. Liked elements of it but besides that, it wasn't anything spectacular.

    10. Obviously I am taking a Literature class. This was a story that began with complete hopelessness and ended with a glimmer of hope. Gotta love a happy ending.

    11. The Horse Dealer's Daughter was ok but not something I would read again. I may check out other stories by this author though.
