This chapter discusses the life of Frieda. Otto Gross described Frieda as a woman of the future whose laughter and loving had kept her soul free of ‘the curse and dirt of two gloomy millennia’. She was also fond of needlework and knitting. On the ranch, with its beautiful surroundings and spectacular view way down to the fissure on the sage-brush plain which hid the Rio Grande, she could indulge her talent for happy pottering, or happily doing nothing, which Lawrence had so appreciated. Frieda endured Lawrence's disinclination to settle and was willing to follow him round the world. Frieda did have a domestic side and loved to bake.

Keywords:   D. H. Lawrence, Frieda, Otto Gross, soul free, Rio Grande, loving
