Artistic Individuality: A Study of Selected 20th Century Artist's Novels
In this study of a series of artist novels, individuality is elucidated by childhood experiences, sensuality and receptivity, the urge for self-expression, relation to nature, and creative work. Individuality is essentially the recognition of one's self as a unique part of a whole, which is apt to be discovered in kinship with nature and expressed in aesthetics that stem from an appreciation of nature. The featured novels are Willa Cather's The Song of the Lark, M. Allen Cunningham's Lost Son, James Joyce's A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, W. Somerset Maugham's The Moon and Sixpence, Dodie Smith's I Capture the Castle, John Updike's Seek My Face, and Virginia Woolf 's To the Lighthouse.
