D H Lawrence and the Culture Industry

Synopsis
An alternative view of Lawrence and his art. Originally funded as a contribution to the Lawrence Centenary Year (1985) the video investigates the specific case of Lawrence but also indicates the wider issues and problems of relating any writing to society. Focusses on the social dimensions of Lawrence’s work, and discusses his responses and connections to the historical currents of his time. Explores the way in which the machinery of our mass culture represents Lawrence the working class artist in particular and the artist in general. A special contribution is made by Raymond Williams, and the reflections, comments and suggestions on re-assessing Lawrence’s achievement he offers constitute an important critical statement.
