Lawrence and the Modern English Novel

  • John Bayley


In an age of faith the novel hardly exists. The form, as we know it, comes most into its own when life is seen to offer nothing but life itself. The one who sees it the most graphically is the novelist, and it is his task and opportunity to offer the realisation of life in art which will—at least implicitly—fulfil his reader’s sense of what life can be.
