The Rocking-Horse Winner’ is a short story by D. Lawrence, which was first published in 1926. It’s a story about luck, money, and success, and the dangers of chasing after these and investing too much in them. But how we should analyse and interpret the story remains unclear. Some critics (such as Ben Stoltzfus in his book Lacan and Literature: Purloined Pretexts) have noted that Paul, a preadolescent boy, spends a lot of time shut away in his room riding the horse, and that he rides it so frenziedly that he ends up going into a trance. But on the other hand, he ends up being overcome by his own success and the excitement it generates, and dies.
