This chapter examines the public reaction to Murry after Lawrence's death. It analyses Lawrence's representations of Murry in several short stories and Huxley's caricature of him in Point Counterpoint. Murry's critical debate with T. S. Eliot over Romanticism and Classicism is discussed, as is Murry's alienation from Bloomsbury. The second part of the chapter concentrates on Murry's representations of himself in his unpublished journals and his autobiography: Between Two Worlds. It considers the emotional difficulties of his childhood, his altering ideological perspectives, his anxieties about class-identification, and his recurrent obsession with Mansfield and Lawrence throughout the rest of his life.
