Reviews of : The Prussian Officer by D H Lawrence PDF Book
Inside this Book – Vit Babenco rated it it was amazing “Gradually the officer had become aware of his servant’s young, vigorous, unconscious presence about him. He could not get away from the sense of the youth’s person, while he was in attendance. It was like a warm flame upon the older man’s tense, rigid body, that had become almost unliving, fixed. There was something so free and self-contained about him, and something in the young fellow’s movement, that made the officer aware of him. And this irritated the Prussian. He did not choose to be touched into life by his servant. He might easily have changed his man, but he did not.” “The Prussian Officer” was the first story by D. H. Lawrence I’ve read and ever since I became his fervent aficionado for never before I have met an author so masterfully navigating the dark currents of human psyche. “Then she lighted a candle and went into the tiny room. The air was cold and damp, but she could not make a fire, there was no fireplace. She set down the candle and looked round. The candle-light glittered on the lustre-glasses, on the two vases that held some of the pink chrysanthemums, and on the dark mahogany. There was a cold, deathly smell of chrysanthemums in the room. Elizabeth stood looking at the flowers.”
Inside this book –The Prussian Officer PDF Book by D H Lawrence – I find ‘The Prussian Officer’ as an example of the creativity and insightfulness of D. H. Lawrence. In this work he showed a great understanding of psychoanalysis and the role of the defensive mechanism of the self, particularly the role of repression. The disturbing homoerotic impulses the Prussian office felt toward his orderly, paired with his sadistic tendency were very creatively and clearly depicted by the great novelist. The inner conflict between fulfilling his urges and his unacceptable (by himself as well as society; i.e. the Superego) desires toward his orderly, drove the officer to show masked cynicism and bullying toward the young peasant orderly. That is, because yielding to his urges will bring in a threat to his own self, image, reputation, and social class; and will lead to adverse impacts. D. H. Lawrence used a poetic language that reflected the pure soul of the orderly, and the comforting role that nature played in consoling him in his agony. A beautiful work by a great novelist and poet.
