- Sometimes man makes more sense to man when he looks like an animal-or another man, or a woman, or just anything other than himself. The human being is the strangest of all animals, because of the phenomenon called thought. Reaching beyond our personal capsule of life might make us completely free. Such is the manic truth, the reflection of himself, that D.H. Lawrence thrusts forward in the collections of essays entitled "Phoenix" and "Phoenix II." The processes of his mind invite inquiry.
