「사랑에 빠진 여인들」에 나타난 제럴드의 비극적인 삶 고찰

강평순

(세명대학교)

This paper aims at examining Lawrence’s concept of ‘life’ through Gerald’s tragic life among many characters in Women in Love. Gerald Crich is a man of will to clutch things and have them in his power. His will and consciousness to be ahead of others and possess a lot more prevents him from obtaining the true sufficiency in life. Although he achieves the advance and production of industrial civilization represented by coal-mines, there is no serious consideration and awakening at the result. This brings about the impoverished life of coal miners including himself. He seems to gain a feeling of satisfaction from the powerful machine control but in fact, he is stuck in material value system. Gerald’s life like this means a false life and is against true human relationship and true life that Lawrence suggests. It is because his life is lack of serious awareness and responsibility about human relationship. In spite of his efforts to fill the emptiness through love with Gudrun, all his attempts are in vain and he meets his death. A true life for Lawrence is a faithful life to one’s responsibility. Lawrence tries to criticize the industrial civilization and show a true life through Gerald’s tragic life.
