What D.H. Lawrence did so well in this short story was how he fully depicts the potent yet unverbalized influences on the psyche of the boy, as well as the subsequent changes in his feeling and behavior. If I were asked to explain the story to a third person, I would say, "Read it!"

I think everyone should read this, especially if you are one of those who always say you never have enough..... If you have never read D. H. Lawrence you are missing some wonderful literature....

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Draconis Blackthorne on February 4, 2008
Format: Paperback
The Rocking Horse Winner is truly a tragic tale about a boy whose golden heart and gift for clairvoyance ultimately led to his demise, because of excessive, counter-productive greed and confusion besetting his mother, who adhered to a misunderstanding of the application of motivational greed, as opposed to an unbalanced obsession. Love and luck were equated according to the amount of money in the coffers.

By a series of prognostications, the boy did bring the precious cash forth, all the while rocking violently on his magical rocking horse, which was actually a tool of mediation and focus for him to assuage the winning horse in the day's race. He was eventually driven insane by the a-dolt's pre-occupation until his demise.

Ironically, in one scene, his mother admonished him to cast away his childish ways, when she herself did not realize her own compulsion.

I read this in college years ago and just fell in love with DH Lawrence's writing. I bought this as a Christmas gift for my nephew.
