L'Étalon

République des Lettres

Texte intégral révisé suivi d'une biographie de D. H. Lawrence. Écrit après "Le Serpent à plumes" et avant "L'Amant de Lady Chatterley", "L'Étalon" ("St Mawr", dans le titre original), l'un des plus beaux portraits de cheval de toute l'histoire de la littérature, a été publié pour la première fois en 1925, simultanément en Angleterre et aux Etats-Unis, et n'a cessé depuis d'être réédité dans les pays de langue anglaise. Comme souvent chez Lawrence, l'intrigue embrasse une vision panthéiste du monde. Derrière l'inénarrable portrait de Mrs Witt, l'Américaine, ou de celui plus nuancé de sa fille, jeune femme névrosée abandonnant son époux trop civilisé pour sauver de la castration un cheval sauvage et partir s'installer dans les montagnes du Nouveau-Mexique, on devine la tendresse mêlée de férocité de l'écrivain qui débusque, au-delà du puritanisme et des faux-semblants, le pathétique et la nudité de la condition humaine. Fidèle à sa mystique et à sa morale fondées sur un profond respect de la vie instinctive et de la nature, l'auteur de "L'Amant de Lady Chatterley" y médite sur l'univers sexué et poursuit une réflexion souvent amère sur l'homme, cet animal social et politique perverti par des siècles d'idéalisme judéo-chrétien. La sensualité constante du roman, où les paysages et les saisons se transforment parallèlement à l'évolution des sentiments intérieurs, est un éblouissement de l'instant présent qui ne cesse de se métamorphoser, plein de l'élan vital d'une nature primitive. "L'Étalon", avec son lyrisme, sa force dionysiaque, son féminisme et ses propos subversifs sur la sexualité, confirme si besoin ce que la postérité a ratifié: D.H. Lawrence demeure l'un des plus grands écrivains du XXe siècle.

Novelist, poet, playwright, essayist, literary critic and artist, D. H. Lawrence had an immense influence on twentieth century literature, in spite of his short and often persecuted life. His novels represent an extended reflection on the dehumanising effects of modernity and industrialisation, establishing his name as one of the great imaginative novelists of his generation. This comprehensive eBook presents the most complete edition of Lawrence’s works possible in the US, with numerous illustrations, rare texts, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
