These two brilliant novels are deservedly among Lawrence's most popular works. Both are at the same time exciting narratives and striking expressions of Lawrence's philosophy. St. Mawr is the story of a splendid stallion in whose vitality the heroine finds the quality that is lacking in the men she knows. It is also the first of Lawrence's writing to be partially set in America, on a ranch in Arizona. The Man Who Died, originally published in Paris as "The Escaped Cock" and later retitled and revised, has as its main character Christ, who does not die on the cross but escapes to wander through the country seeking the meaning of human existence, which he finally discovers in a temple of Isis by the waters of Lebanon.… (mer)

The Man Who Died
An alternate ending to the Messiah story with the main guy surviving, but suffering disillusionment and nausea in addition to his executive wounds. He must travel, in mufti, incognito, until he finds healing in the hands of a pagan, Greek-speaking, Egyptian priestess expatriated to Lebanon.

There on her villa, watching the dying of the day, the slaves going home to the hill--"It was the life of the little day, the life of little people. And the man who had died said to himself: 'Unless we encompass it in the greater day, and set the little life in the circle of the greater life, all is disaster.'"

But not by the old way: he has outlived that mission. "What a pity I preached to them! A sermon is much more likely to cake into mud, and to close the fountains, than is a psalm or a song." With the priestess he has been able to touch another and to be touched by her. He must move on, but the touch lingers and the touch is the portal to the greater day, the greater life.

The ending brings new meaning to "He is risen," and "In my Father's house are many mansions." Enlightening, perhaps, to some; offensive, perhaps, to others. ( )
