Aaron's Rod is a picaresque novel by D. H. Lawrence, started in 1918 and published in 1922. Lawrence began writing Aaron's Rod early in 1918, but abandoned the work after its first eleven chapters. The longer portion that finishes Aaron's Rod was written by Lawrence in 1921. The biblical title refers to the rod of Aaron in the Old Testament, Moses' brother who built the Golden Calf in the desert for the worship of the Israelites.

During World War I the couple was forced to remain in England; Lawrence's outspoken opposition to the war and Frieda's German birth aroused suspicion that they were spies. In 1919 they left England, returning only for brief visits. Their nomadic existence was spent variously in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka), Australia, the United States (New Mexico), and Mexico.

There was a large, brilliant evening star in the early twilight, and underfoot the earth was half frozen. It was Christmas Eve. Also the War was over, and there was a sense of relief that was almost a new menace. A man felt the violence of the nightmare released now into the general air. Also there had been another wrangle among the men on the pit-bank that evening. Aaron Sisson was the last man on the little black railway-line climbing the hill home from work. He was late because he had attended a meeting of the men on the bank. He was secretary to the Miners Union for his colliery, and had heard a good deal of silly wrangling that left him nettled.

Lawrence became very repetitious throughout this book. It was as if his characters had some sort of social flaw. And while we are on the subject of social views, that was Lawrence's message throughout this book. He took on religion, love, poverty, adultery, politics...so much packed into this novel that it could be overwhelming.
A book like this could have some impact on today's society with the division of the left and right although I think this book leaned more to the left.
I did not like Aaron Sisson at all. He was arrogant and a cheater that seemed full of hate for his wife. This isn't something I would normally pick up and read, but thanks to the 1001 books list, I can now cross this one off.

I'm not going to waste anyone's time by spouting the virtues of this book, other than it is one of those that gets better with each successive read and only makes you want to know more about Lawrence, since a lot of it is autobiographical. It's a very philisophical, thoughtful, reflective book, not heavy on plot. It might really be insubstantial if not for the quality of Lawrence's prose.

Now, for this Public Domain edition (at a not so bargain price). Mmmmmm, let's see...about 12 missing pages (that's right, completely missing), pages that look like they were copied by a 3 year old, or an 87 year old lush librarian --- smudgy, misshapen words, etc. Hey, I know this work is in the public domain....that's no excuse to grab some piece of deteriorating crap off the shelf, copy it and then attempt to profit by duping people that what they're getting is a quality product.

It's not like there aren't better, complete versions out there...THEY'RE ON THE WEB!!!

This edition is lazy, a travesty, and should be banned from being sold by Amazon as fradulent advertising.

With almost two dozen typos per page this version of Aron's Rod was completely unreadable. Not just typos but many of the sentences were incomplete. I found out to my frustration that it was too late to return the book. In frustration I simply threw the book away. DO NOT BUY FROM THIS PUBLISHER. I wish someone would have warned me about this.

I just re read this after an interval of 40 years and was astonished at its modernist feel. Written in the early twenties in that languorous and uncertain place just after the first world war, it foreshadows the same dilemmas and scenarios that would follow in the late 50s and early sixties. How to find freedom and meaning, escape a bankrupt conventional world, explore sexual preferences, how to satisfy the wander lust. It is often spoken of as the 3rd part of The Rainbow and Women in Love trilogy and I now believe it worthy to be a part of such August company.
You need to get beyond your hang ups about Lawrence as conventional posterity has maligned him, but it is well worth the effort.
It is a pity that this free kindle edition is so poorly formatted.

You may not like the main character, this is true; in fact, you may, at times, hate the man but this is a wonderful book by an extraordinary author. This book explores and pushes at the boundaries of social standards, pushes at what is considered acceptable and normal by the majority of people, and probes the wide area of gray that lies in-between. I loved it.

D.H. Lawrence's talent for describing people and scenery are beautifully displayed in this book.
However, there are several anti-Semitic remarks that I found repugnant.

I did like this book much. Basically, it was about a selfish man and his flute. The main character was rather closed minded and irresponsible. This book was not one I would recommend at all.

Strangely, this was my first full-length D.H. Lawrence novel. Thankfully, I'd read enough of his short stories and essays to know that Aaron's Rod isn't indicative of his artistic capabilities. I was more impressed by the concept behind the novel than its execution. Essentially, Aaron Sisson's abandonment of his family and job in order to join a travelling orchestra is meant to symbolize the power and passion of "individual freedom," "personal friendship", "masculinity" and "art". I think he only half-succeeds. Just as Aaron comes across as an "incomplete" man searching for meaning in post World War I Europe, I think the novel is too loosely constructed, and Lawrence's characters, too thinly drawn. But on a symbolic level, they are full of Lawrentian psychology. The characters of Rawden Lilly, Struthers, the Bricknells, and others all overtly represent various aspects of male and female polarities; however, they are un-memorable and sometimes difficult to relate to.
I was hoping this would be more of an "artist's novel" containing interesting descriptions of Aaron's life in Florence with his bohemian friends, and to a certain extent it is, but Lawrence seemed more interested in symbolism than in telling a good story. Though scattered as a story, the concepts of individuality and society are clearly portrayed throughout "Aaron's Rod", and towards the end, when the anarchist's bomb goes off, we sense a "breaking" (the blue ball/ornament at the beginning, and the flute/rod at the end) of an outdated mode of thinking (i.e. patriarchy, male dominance, etc.) in favor not necessarily of feminity, but an integration of the two. This particular Penguin edition has an excellent introduction and helpful end-notes by Steven Vine which help explain Lawrence and his symbolism to those unfamiliar with his works. I might re-read this novel once I've read more of Lawrence, and come back to it one day from a different viewpoint, but for now, I'd have to say that unless you're a real Lawrence afficionado, I'd hold off on this one until you figure out whether or not you like Lawrence enough to proceed to something as scattered, cold, and dry as this novel comes across.
