Abstract

The snake in the traditional western literature is the devil's pronoun;in most of the western classical literature works the snake is equivalent to Satan. However, Laurence's poetry "snake" completely subvert the negative image of the snake. From the perspective of spiritual analysis and ecological literature, Lawrence created the "snake" active, noble, harmless, and echo the "Id" both inside and outside of the poet, while dislike for snakes of "superego" reveals "human education" to oppress human nature. The poet's confession shows that the snake has won the respect of the poet and the poet's inner world, which completely denies the image of the snake in the western literature.
