This paper analyzes how "Women in Love" depicts nature to reflect the mood of the environment on the characters. The paper discusses the relationships between Ursula and Birkin, Gudrun and Gerald, Birkin and Hermione, Gurdun and Ursula, and Birkin and Gerald. The paper goes on to highlight how the 'grey' dreary world represents the morbidity of the industrial area and the mindless poverty it brought with it, while the use of 'snow' and 'water' as characteristics of the changing times helps in transforming character relations and gives hope where there is none.
From the Paper:"Lawrence aims to take reality into consideration in his treatment and vast range of subjects. He uses symbols and metaphors to convey his messages in befitting manner. From the role of both women and men to their conscious and unconscious desires, from love and hatred to peace and spiritualism from suppression to expression he covers everything. (Beal, 1961)
"Women in Love, is a masterpiece of parallel, "architectonic" structure. Lawrence sets a number of relationships going at the same time: Ursula and Birkin, Gudrun and Gerald, Birkin and Hermione, Gurdun and Ursula, and Birkin and Gerald. These, in the course of the novel, gradually work themselves out in a brilliantly inevitable way. The end of the book fixes things in a final pattern: We have gotten an overall, simultaneous view of the world, of the interaction between man and society in a number of different circumstances. Thus, the action of Women in Love is temporarily simultaneous but organized in space."
