Example text

And she felt the soft bud of him within her stirring and in strange rhythms flushing up into her, with a strange, rhythmic growing motion, swelling and swelling till it filled her all cleaving consciousness. And she lay there crying in unconscious inarticulate cries. ” The repetition plus elaboration conveys to readers the sensation produced by the exfoliating penis. 25 The phallus is implicitly figured as a plunger that turns Connie’s body of water into ever deeper and wider concentric whirlpools of feeling.

As the physical properties of these words reduplicate, paralinguistic units seems to copulate like bodies. And the “lap” common to “flapping” and “overlapping” has a sexual connotation appropriate to the context: the overlapping of Connie and Mellors occurs in their laps. Moreover,“soft” qualifies flames and feathers, indicating that softness characterizes the evanescence and fragility of inorganic things as much as the vulnerability of living organisms. 23 In the depiction of the fourth coitus, the narrator stresses the moment to moment impact of Mellors’s penis on Connie’s bodily focalization.

It is appropriate that the vivification phase should begin with Mellors’s introduction because at this point he is, despite his many flaws, the most vital character in the novel. This aliveness, coupled with his unconventionality and singularity, qualifies him as a novitiate in Lawrence’s religion of passion. 9 Mellors’s qualification for participation in the initiation depends on the sustained growth of his vitality, which itself depends on his ability to maintain close ties with the creatures of the wood and, more importantly, to deepen his bond with Connie.
