Overview

Lawrence's first novel The White Peacock was begun in 1906, rewritten three times, and published in 1911. The Cambridge edition uses the final manuscript as base-text, and faithfully recovers Lawrence's words and punctuation from the layers of publishers' house-styling and their errors; original passages, changed for censorship reasons, are reinstated. Andrew Robertson's introduction sets out the history of Lawrence's writing and revision, and the generally favourable reception by friends and reviewers. Lawrence incorporated much of his own experience and reading on to the novel which is set just north-east of Eastwood, and modelled characters on his friends and family. The notes identify real-life places and people, explain dialect forms, literary allusions, and historical references, and include sensitive passages deleted before publication. The textual apparatus records all the variant readings and the appendix prints the two surviving fragments from the earliest manuscripts of the novel, then entitled 'Laetitia'.

    You know why people cut? Because it's a distraction. For one moment you don't feel all the pain, the loss, the hurt. All you feel is that razor or glass going into your skin, the blood dripping down your arm, leg, stomach. You don't think about how alone you are or how fat and ugly you are. You don't think about the way people talk about you behind your back. You don't think about how your family is fighting or your friends hate you. All you think about is the blood. And the addicting part? Well that's when all the hurt and pain comes back. When the cut isn't fresh and you can feel all the buld up of sadness and loneliness inside you. So you have to do it again, but a little deeper so the numbness will last longer. The pain inside will be delayed longer. And as the pain inside gets worse and worse you have to make the pain outside worse and worse. Its all about control. You have it. You can't control the pain on the inside so you get to control it on the outside.

    Its all for attention right?
    She cuts for attention doesn't she?
    She thinks about suicide everyday.
    She starves herself.
    She cries herself to sleep.
    She's broken.
    But its all for attention right?

    She paints a pretty picture,
    But the story has a twist,
    Her paint brush is a razor,
    And her canvas is her wrist,
    She paints her pretty picture,
    In a color that's blood red,
    While using her sharp paint brush,
    She finally ends up dead.
    Her pretty pictures fading,
    Quite slowly on her arm,
    The blood is not racing through her,
    She can no longer do harm.
    She painted her pretty picture,
    But her picture had a twist,
    You see her mind was her razor,
    And her heart was her wrist.
