The Sense of Touch: A Common Theme for Several of D.H. Lawrence’s Short Stories

D. H. Lawrence was a very well known, all-around, popular man in the early twentieth century. Not only did Lawrence write a great deal of short stories, but he also created novels, poems, plays, essays, travel books, paintings, translations, and literary criticisms. Lawrence was obviously a unique individual, and this is reflected in his short story writing. Many other authors of his time wrote with a common characteristic, passion, or setting; but Lawrence uses his unique personality to write with a common theme of intimacy, emotions, and instinct. More specifically, in D. H. Lawrence’s short stories “Tickets, Please”, “You Touched Me”, and “The Blind Man”, Lawrence reflects the characters’ level of intimacy with the sense of touch. In “Tickets, Please” D. H. Lawrence tells the story of a young boy, unfit for war and “crippled”, who tries to win over as many girls as possible. John Thomas was the only decent looking boy left at the tramway system during the war, and he used that to his advantage. Every night, John Thomas would “walk” a girl home; however, he never came close to an actual relationship. Eventually, John Thomas had been with every single girl at the station, and by that time, his girls were fed up. The ladies were tired of being used and treated poorly by John Thomas, so they all got together and came up with a plot for revenge. The girls decided that they would make him choose just ONE of them to be with. When they asked him upfront, he didn’t give an answer, so they tried something else. The girls have John Thomas turn and face the wall; then, each girl was supposed to touch his back. When the one girl that John Thomas wanted to be with touched his back, he should say their name. Lawrence uses the sense of touch here, as a way of identification. Even…...

Bernard Lawrence "Bernie" Madoff

...Bernard Lawrence "Bernie" Madoff 1. Describe three types of illegal business behavior alleged against Mr. Madoff and for each type of behavior, explain how the behavior is illegal or unethical in the conduct of business. In March 2009, Madoff pleaded responsible to 11 federal crimes and confessed to turning his wealth management business into a massive Ponzi scheme that cheated thousands of investors of billions of dollars. Madoff said he started the Ponzi plan in the early 1990s. However, the federal investigators believe that the fraud began as early a 1970s and speculation process may never have been lawful. Investigators found out that there were others individuals occupied in the scheme. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) came under fire for not examining Madoff more thoroughly; inquiries about his firm were lifted as early as 1999. There were some allegations and they are as follows: Monopolizing Trade, this was unlawful according to Sherman Antitrust Act (1890); possessing unfair performs and misleading acts in or affecting commerce, which was prohibited by Federal Trade Commission Act (1914); Fraudulent financial accounting was also unlawful according to Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 2. Name three types of parties who were impacted by the actions of Mr. Madoff and describe how they were impacted. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) examined Madoff in 1999 and 2000 about concerns that the firm was hiding its customers' orders from other......

...Lawrence Sports: Determination of Working Capital Policy University of Phoenix: Corporate Finance FIN/571 January 27, 2013 Course Facilitator: Troy Mahone Lawrence Sports is a multi-million dollar company that prides itself on its ability to manufacture and distribute quality sports equipment and protective gear. Their principal Customer, Mayo Corporation, has recently requested a repayment extension on their loan with the company. Mayo would like to pay 80% of the payments due for the weeks of March 17-23 and March 24-30 and no payments would be made prior to April 14-20. To allow this payment arrangement, Lawrence Sports would have a deficit cash position for the weeks of March 31-April 6, where they would have to take an additional loan to cover the $307,000 deficit. Additionally, they would incur an interest payment of $3,150 on the loan. For the week of April 7-13, a loan would have to be made to cover the $411,000 deficit with an additional interest payment of $3,690. Lawrence Corporation has already reached their $1.2 million credit limit level and they would, according to company policy, be unable to make additional loans. Lawrence Corporation greatly values the business relationship with Mayo Corp, and a decision must be made determining whether to allow a repayment extension based on the terms Mayo has stated, or come up with an acceptable plan, not only for Mayo Corp, but a plan that would be agreeable with all the parties involved. Allowing any......

Image of Memory and Nostalgia: an Analysis of D. H. Lawrence’s Poem “Piano”

...Image of memory and nostalgia: An Analysis of D. H. Lawrence’s poem “Piano” D. H. Lawrence’s melancholic poem Piano shows a man who is experiencing nostalgia as he listens to a woman singing which reminds him of his childhood. Striking as the poem is, the crucial elements of poetry are well woven into the text as the speaker narrates about the present moment and his past memory. How did the poet achieve such a natural combination within the text? This paper would discuss about the elements of poetry embedded in the poem as the narrative unfolds. From the opening line of “Piano” we see from the perspective of the speaker, who waxes nostalgic as he listens to a woman singing to him in the evening. The first-person point of view gives us the indication that the speaker is undergoing strong emotional feelings over the song. The “boom of the tingling strings,”(3) an aural image, echoes the suddenness with which the memory hits the speaker, and, as readers, we are left in the same place as the speaker. The speaker takes a bittersweet tone, which is also strongly nostalgic through out the poem. The man in the poem has traveled the road of life and has reached his adulthood, a phase of life, which is associated with freedom of, will and power. But he still contemplates giving all that up; his heart “weeps to belong” and his “manhood is cast down a flood of remembrance” as the “glamor of childish days” overcomes him emotionally.(9-11) He breaks the unspoken rule that men aren’t......

...we can infer from its final lines: Out here in Jutland/ In the old man-killing parihes/ I will feel lost,/ Unhappy and at home. Whereas in the second one Tollund, the poet has already been in Aarhus visiting the Tollund Man:That Sunday morning we had travelled far. We stood a long time out in Tollund Moss. Heaney deliberately uses the past this time in contrast with the future used in the previous one. The future then is past now that the poet indeed made his foretold pilgrimage. But if the final lines of The Tollund Man seem to be absolutely hopeless about the current problem in Ireland, in this one the poet allows himself to be a bit more optimistic doubtless influenced by the ceasefire of 1994: More scouts than strangers/ Ghosts who´d walked abroad/ Unfazed by light,/ to make a new beginning/ And make a go of it,/ alive and sinning,/ Ourselves again/ free-willed again, not bad. This time it goes the other way around; it is the present which condicionates Heaney´s look at the past. And he will go even further in The Tollunman in Springtime when he places his bog-protagonist as the narrator voice in a virtual future for him that ironically enough is our present. But I guess it is already time to focus on another poem of the forementioned collection North published in 1979, Kinship, and its relation with the aspect indicated in the beginning of this essay: The relationship between past and present in Heaney´s poetry. I decided to spend part of this paper to make a......

Lawrence of Arabia

...Movie Review: Lawrence of Arabia Script I believe the script was very much profound. There had been quite a lot of twists in the story which made me eager to find out what could happen next. It also showed what a man can do for people regardless of his race and religion. It showed how great the influence of a person who was not even one of their own yet was able to unite them as a nation. Acting In some parts of the movie, I found the acting a little bit clumsy. When one of the slaves of Lawrence fell into the quicksand, the acting was a bit stiff. When an Arab shot the people at the train, some of them fell in front instead of going backwards since they were shot from the front. Also, when Lawrence was shot by the soldier from the left, his wound was on the right which was quite impossible. Moreover, Lawrence kept moving naturally as if he weren’t shot. He could even move his right hand and shoulder. Directing David Lean’s directing gave a lot of insights about what the actors could do. He was able to challenge the actors to act and express themselves which the situation asks of them. It’s just that he became a little careless on some parts which made the actors look clumsy. Cinematography In the movie, it was able to show the things that really needed to be shown like the expression of the actors, details in the movie and many more. The only thing that needed more work was about the lighting during the night. I could barely see what was happening when it was......

Lawrence Kohlberg

...Lawrence Kohlberg laid the groundwork for the current debate within psychology on moral development. He proposed that children form ways of thinking through their experiences which include understandings of moral concepts such as justice, rights, equality and human welfare. Kohlberg followed the development of moral judgment beyond the ages. He determined that the process of attaining moral maturity took longer and was more gradual than other studies have shown. Kohlberg identified six stages of moral grouped into three major levels. Each level represented a fundamental shift in the social-moral perspective of the individual. At the first level, the preconventional level, a person's moral judgments are characterized by a individual perspective. Within this level, a Stage 1 they focused on avoiding breaking rules that are backed by punishment, obedience for its own sake and avoiding the physical consequences of an action to persons and property. At Stage 2 there is the early emergence of moral reciprocity. The Stage 2 focused on the value of an action. Reciprocity is of the form, "you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours." The Golden Rule becomes, "If someone hits you, you hit them back." At Stage 2 one follows the rules only when it is to someone's immediate interests. What is right is what's fair in the sense of an equal exchange, a deal, an agreement. At Stage 2 there is an understanding that everybody has his own interest to pursue and these conflict, so that right......

Risks Part IV: Self Reflection References Part I: Global Economy / Factors Affecting Global Economy Motivations / Risks Motivations for Expansion The motivation for the Harley Davidson company to expand to other markets in the world is to gain company growth. The company would like to broaden their customer base by reaching out to new markets to increase their sales and revenue. Also another reason that the company is motivated to expand is for economies of scale. The company can spread their cost of manufacturing, marketing, and R&D by expanding globally. This in turn will lower the cost per unit with expansion. Another reason that the company is expanding is to reach new markets. The company has come out with a new bike that is being sold in India and in the United States. The new Harley-Davidson Bike Called the Street has been designed to meet the needs of new riders and a younger generation of Harley riders. The company has priced the bike at an affordable price to make it attractive to the younger generation. “We believe the new Street 750 will excite a new segment of urban riders in India and to experience the Harley Davidson lifestyle at an accessible price.”(Correspondent, 2014) Risks in Expansion When the Harley-Davidson Company enters new......

...Lawrence Perry Personal Financial Planning August 9, 2014 You Decide 1. What is the logic for choosing your two ZIP codes? Is the selection based upon work location, family location, good schools, and so on? Deciding where to buy a house I looked at areas that I’ve lived in before, and areas that was closed to my future job. House selection one is located in the Northwest Suburbs and is in Elgin, IL. 60120. This location is about a 25 minute drive to my future job which would be in Schaumburg, IL. House selection two is where I went to high school at Palatine, IL. 60067. This location is about ten minutes from Schaumburg. Both location has good schools with Palatine with a little edge on the schooling system. The distances from house selection one and two to family is about the same, about 30 minute drive to Chicago. 2. What is the logic behind choosing the size and specifications of each house? Choosing the size and specification I chosen I looked at the average size of families, and the thought about the size of my life. I would like to have one kid, and I would also like to have a office in the house. So choosing a house with 3 bedrooms was ideal for me. One room would be the master’s bedroom, one for my child, and one would be an office. Also since the average size of families are 2.5 kids having a three bedroom is key to the resale value of the house. Also I decided to get a Single Family House. I always wanted to have a house with a huge backyard,......

...Lawrence Sports Working capital management is very important in running a business because it involves managing all current assets and liabilities. Working capital management involves making appropriate investments in cash, marketable securities, receivables, and inventories, as well as the level and mix of short-term financing (Emery, Finnerty, Stowe, 2007, p. 639, para. 3).

Nancy Lee does well in school and the teachers like her "You have been an excellent student" (P.61 L.31). She is at senior art class at the George Washington's high school, where she just painted a picture, which is in the competition of the art scholarship of the year. At the beginning, she wins the competition, but when the judges find out that she is a Negro, they give away the 1st. place to another person. Nancy is a girl with her heart at the right place as she thinks much of other people "now mother can have a new coat next winter" (P.63. L.10).This is what she is thinking about doing in the future if she would win the scholarship the next years. The dreams of Nancy also show that she is a goodhearted person, especially when it comes to people of her own race. The way that her dreams is pointing out her goodness, is the dream about America being a country without race discrimination. Nancy Lee and Miss O'Shay, who is the vice principal, have some things in common. They are both from another country, and both the Irish and the black people who immigrated to America have been exposed to discrimination "years ago we were called the dirty Irish" (P.67.

Jacob Lawrence

...Jacob Lawrence Art Analysis: Panel 1 1. In the artwork, Panel 1, of Jacob Lawrence, Lawrence’s style is non-objective and abstract. Though, you can make out the artwork of what it is, Lawrence did not solely focus on one particular part of the artwork, but instead the artwork as a whole is more focused on the figures as a big group instead of just one individual. 2. This specific piece of Lawrence does not have a focal point, but instead the audience focuses on the whole artwork. One clear thing to me as an audience is that the colors Lawrence uses are very similar. There are more cool colors compare to warm colors, and Lawrence mostly uses this to avoid having just one main focal point. Most importantly, the colors are dark and blends in and this doesn’t create a focal point in the painting. Although you can see wordings in the painting, it doesn’t take the audience’s attention away from the picture as a whole. 3. In this painting, the subject matter is the human figures and migration. However, Lawrence does not create any specific faces for the human figures. Although Lawrence doesn’t give the people in the paintings any identities, you can still recognize that his main subject is the people. More specifically, the paintings depict African Americans in the South fleeing or moving up into the North to escape the Southern discrimination. 4. The lines in this painting is created to shape each of the different figures that Lawrence shows in the pictures...

Explore the Relationship Between Fiction and Metaphysics and/or Ethics in D. H. Lawrence's Short Story "The White Stocking"

...D.H. Lawrence was well known, arguably notorious, for advocating the doctrine of romantic vitalism both in his life and in his writings. Originally a scientific term, the Oxford English Dictionary defines romantic vitalism as “The doctrine or theory that the origin and phenomena of life are due to or produced by a vital principle, as distinct from a purely chemical or physical force” (Concise Oxford English Dictionary, 1999, p1603). Lawrence’s championing of the philosophy persisted right up until his death in 1930: indeed, as Daniel Fuchs comments, “The voice of romantic vitalism speaks with intransigent integrity in Lawrence to the last" (Fuchs, 2011, p156). In the early twentieth century, romantic vitalism, as Lawrence conceived of it, championed the view that people’s intellectual development had taken precedence over their spiritual and emotional development. This brief essay will examine how the metaphysical concept of romantic vitalism is explored through the treatment of human love and human weakness within the institution or marriage, and how individuals should behave towards one another within D.H.Lawrence’s early short story “The White Stocking”. “The White Stocking” is a narrative about desire and more specifically about repressed desire: as the very title of the story implies, it is about the idea of repression of sex and sexuality as being injurious to the spiritual and mental well being of the subject. It explores in tangential form a conflict between the......

Lawrence Sports

...Lawrence Sports can implement an aggressive approach as an alternative working capital policy. This policy uses less long term and more short-term financing (Emery, Finnerty & Stowe, 2007). Short -term financing is more cost efficient with comparison to the long term financing. Lawrence Sports would experience a profit increase under this policy. This approach has high risk and often high return, as we know from the principle of Risk-Return Trade-Off that without some sort of market imperfection, higher expected profitability comes only at the expense of greater risk (Emery, Finnerty & Stowe, 2007). The main idea is to collect payments on time, leaving no debtors, invest that amount in the business and pay the creditors as late as possible. With that said, a short term aggressive approach is ideal only if the firm expects decline in interest rates. There are risks associated with this aggressive financing approach include higher interest rates, the potential for accounts receivable default, and credit limitations. Therefore, Lawrence Sports have to be prepared to take different actions that are needed in times of tight periods in the capital cash flow. The company can negotiate with current creditors to stretch the account payable, also, to identify and create a list of potential creditors that would be executed in the event there are issues with the existing creditor relationship. Lawrence Sports’ finance manager should also identify and create a similar list with......
