In all of them Lawrence was compulsively rewriting what he called my philosophy. They are difficult works: highly metaphorical, in places prophetically expressionist, even surreal. This extended commentary makes sense of them, treating them as a succession of experimental writings that support each other, develop non-discursive modes of writing, and are linked by shared metaphors that reveal shared preoccupations. Blacks highly useful analysis is like the close reading of poetry.
