Abstract

British novelist D.H.Lawrence's creations undergo major changes after the World War I, and his works were turned from realism to myths and fables. The geographical natural environment of Mexico made him create The Plumed Serpent. The Geographic Gene, the “primitive image” of Mexican Indians, gives a mysterious image to Lawrence. Lawrence evinces an obvious concern with the duality primitivism-civilization, or rather with the contrast between the Western world and so-called “primitive societies”. This preoccupation with primitivism should be viewed as the natural escapist tendency of a society which sought within foreign cultures its own lost stability and purposiveness. It seems that in the three stages of the development of Lawrence's thought, The Plumed Serpent is an important link point for the past and the future, which is an inevitable stage in the exploration of Lawrence's salvation thought, and plays an important role in the study of Lawrence's creation.
