The poem Mystic by D.H. Lawrence introduces the concept of life and peoples individual experiences within that life. Everyone has their own personal entanglements with different things, allowing people to have unique experiences within their own world. Lawrence attempts to make the reader understand this through his use of symbolism throughout the short poem. Lawrence mentions the taste of an apple and how an apple can hold all sorts of different flavors, however, he isn’t literally speaking of the tangible flavor of the apple, rather the intangible flavors of life itself. The apple serves as a traditional symbol, perhaps even a hint at the divine itself, symbolizing the start of evil in man, but also representing the start of something beautiful; a new found appreciation for the world in which we all share. This becomes more evident as Lawrence is describing what he tastes within in the apple, he says “…when I taste in it the summer and the snows, the wild welter of earth and the insistence of the sun.” The apple itself is a symbol for the wonderful and beautiful things we get to experience throughout life. Lawrence takes this a step further and talks about how apples can sometimes be “wet and sour and some of too much sun, brackish sweet like lagoon-water that has been too much sunned.” which would then represent bad experiences, those in which show us that world isn’t always the best place or perhaps those in which we take up too much of the world and become consumed by it. This is all relative to one’s personal interpretation of the world of course, everyone views the world differently which in turn makes it nearly impossible to be able to taste the same flavors in anyone else’s apple.
