I was hasty in my criticisms of Lawrence. Thinking more about him, I
realize how much I admire his short stories, as well as some of the novels.
Where, Vishvesh, does Henry James write about the failure of
intelligence in Madame Bovary? Or do I misunderstand -- is it Leavis
who applies these words of James' to the novel?
