194) He makes that fascinating shoulder of hers sound like a faithful dog recognising its long-lost master. Touch reawakens the child in the adult: I was glad to have Carlotta again: to have that inexpressibly delicate and complete quiet of the two of us . . for this hour at least, it was whole, a soft, complete, physical flow, and a unison deeper even than childhood. (195) Lawrence originally wrote ‘as deep as childhood’ (346). I would guess that he had the climax of The Mill on the Floss at the back of his mind here – at the front of his mind when finishing The Virgin and the Gipsy a few days later: a profound, longstanding mutuality rediscovered in the middle of the flood (‘I felt as if I were resisting a rushing, cold dark current’ [196]), and breaking through everything that had conspired for so long to obscure it.

Or in a relationship which can accept uneasiness, allow it expression, even cherish it, have no need of shelter from it? Morier’s idea is a common one in Lawrence’s work, that a woman like Carlotta needs a rebellious male outsider – ‘sansculotte’ is Morier’s description of himself – a figure defined against the conventional notion of ‘home’, to provide her with another home, a home for that element in her which cannot be satisfied by the accommodations she has had to make with life.
