This essay attempts to evaluate the place of The Boy in the Bush in the D. H. Lawrence canon through a detailed analysis and comparison of that novel with Aaron's Rod, Kangaroo and The Plumed Serpent. Three themes concerned with the protagonist, Jack Grant, are focused on: 1) Grant's antisocial personality; 2) Grant and the dark God; 3) Grant's insistence on his superiority. Clearly, Jack Grant hates the world, and feels nauseated at women's crowding on him. Likewise in Aaron's Rod, Aaron Sisson runs away from his dominating wife and goes off to seek his identity. In Kangaroo, R. L. Somers detests common people, and tries to persuade his wife Harriet to believe in the unknown dark God he trusts, but is not at all successful. The Boy in the Bush was written after Kangaroo, and surely reflects the author's feelings and ideas at that time. Lawrence's deep antipathy to Europe and what it represented was also expressed when he wrote The Plumed Serpent. Similar parallels among this group of novels can be ascertained when we closely examine the second and third themes. Thus we can recognize the importance of The Boy in the Bush.
