  • Dehumanization In Lady Chatterley's Lover

    In Lady Chatterley’s Lover, a strong, powerful female protagonist takes the lead against the repressed mental state (that’s a first). “A woman has to live her life, or live to repent not having lived it” (Lawrence 73). And Lawrence evokes powerful messages, or lessons. “Perhaps only people who are capable of real togetherness have that look of being alone in the universe. The others have a certain stickiness, they stick to the mass” (Lawrence 271). In other words, adhering to the mechanized mental state will stain the mind from realness and closeness and love. He makes this message, and the image of a postwar mechanized mental state as a product of the Industrial Age, very clear throughout the entirety of the text. Workers are dehumanized and industrialized by Chatterley. Fittingly, his two slogans are: “the industry comes before the individual,” and “the function determines the individual” (Koh 193).

But, perhaps more importantly to the idea of repression and why Connie wields a sexual desire and nature, is the effect of following an industrial life and mechanized mental state. The effect of industrialization, of machine-driven will, is seen in the episode with the breakdown of Chatterley’s wheelchair, wherein he basically freaks out, showing his need to control everyone and everything, and most importantly, his reliance upon it (Koh 195). The introduction of the novel…
