Title: Developing a new aesthetic: the figure of the modern artist in D.H. Lawrence's major novels
Author: Starkey, Leslie D.
Abstract: In his major novels , D .H . Lawrence develops the figure of the modern artist that very closely resembles the flaneur as it is developed primarily in the work of Walter Benjamin . Both authors record images of the artist in response to the rise of the industrial complex in the modernist era . The artist becomes a "Man of the Crowd ," preserving his observations of the lower - and middle -classes within various artistic media . Lawrence's aesthetic values a vital sense of connection that prevents normal human interaction while simulatenously highlighting the necessity of experience .
