As usual in later works, D. H. Lawrence was not happy just to tell a story, he had to make a statement. But the pagan rites in the novel are far less interesting than the heroine's quest for a different kind of life. Fleeing what she sees as the mechanized western way of life (not an unexciting husband), Irish woman Kate is attracted to rural Mexico and the colourful revivalists. The actual cult is largely irrelevant, although the Mexican atmosphere is beautifully conveyed. Most interesting are Kate's self-doubts, Lawrence's impressions of the American continent and his views (restated in other works) about fuller relationships between men and women.
