Synopsis: Excerpt from A Readers Guide to Great Twentieth-Century English Novels
In varying ways, Conrad's emphasis on the individual artist's con scious mind as guide to his artistic conceptions - an anti-traditionalist position and a throwback to the philosophy of the 1890's, the time of Conrad's apprenticeship - found its counterpart in the statements of Huxley, Virginia Woolf, and Joyce. Conrad was following, in his way, Flaubert's attempt to make the novel a major artistic form, not merely a type of entertainment. Concern with form, a major French preoccu pation, did not significantly begin in England, we remember, until George Eliot, Meredith, and Conrad turned to the novel, and only the latter practiced what he theorized. After Conrad, we find several state ments of novelistic theory incorporated into the novel itself: as exam ples, Stephen's sermon on art in A Portrait, the remarks in Philip Quarles'journal in Point Counter Point, and, indirectly, the tense discussions between Loerke, the devilish creator, and Ursula and Gud run Brangwen near the end of Women in Love.
