"God knows what the women really would have looked like, for they fled through the wilds without soap, comb, or towel. . . . Yet at every moment [in Cooper] they are elegant, perfect ladies, in correct toilet. Which isn't quite fair. You need only go camping for a week, and you'll see." D. H. Lawrence, STUDIES IN CLASSIC AMERICAN LITERATURE (New York: Thomas Seltzer, 1923):88

"One is forced to admire the stark enduring figure of Deerslayer. He is neither spiritual nor sensual. He is a moralizer, but he always tries to moralize from actual experience. . . . Yet he gets his deepest thrill of gratification, perhaps, when he puts a bullet through the heart of a beautiful buck, as it stoops to drink at the lake." [91] "And Natty, what sort of a white man is he? Why, he is a man with a gun. He is a killer, a slayer. Patient and gentle as he is, he is a slayer. Self-effacing, self-forgetting, still he is a killer." [86] "The essential American soul is hard, isolate, stoic, and a killer." [92] D. H. Lawrence, STUDIES IN CLASSIC AMERICAN LITERATURE (New York: Thomas Seltzer, 1923)

"Men are free when they are in a living homeland, not when they are straying and breaking away. . . . Men are free when they belong to a living, organic, BELIEVING community, active in fulfilling some unfulfilled, perhaps unrealized purpose. Not thwn they are escaping to some wild west. The most unfree souls go west, and shout of freedom." D. H. Lawrence, STUDIES IN CLASSIC AMERICAN LITERATURE (New York: Thomas Seltzer, 1923):9
