D.H. LAWRENCE ŞI DIMENSIUNILE CROMATICITĂŢII LINGVISTICE
D.H. LAWRENCE AND THE DIMENSIONS OF HIS LINGUISTIC CHROMATICITY
University of Oradea
The perception of literature is related to the perception of language and style. Literary works are thought to live by virtue of a series of language contexts which mutually modify one another. Without subjecting D.H. Lawrence’s work to minute language analysis, certain points can be made that illustrates how language functions in his literary creations.
Consequently, our paper’s aim is to explore some of the miscellaneous dimensions of D.H. Lawrence’s language and style focusing on specifically chromatic effects of: his affectionate irony and transparent words; his highly sensuous adequate to paint language; his essentially visual, vivid and sometimes hard, violent style full of sensation and presentation; his mixed colloquial and formal style with a tone varying from the informal and intimate to the distant and abstract soft modulators; his almost impressionistic extravagance of colors, sounds and movements; his metaphorical, suggestive, stylistic ornamentation, etc.
We would also like to show that even a slight attempt to analyze D.H. Lawrence’s language reveals the peculiar force and the uniqueness of his style.
