Henri Bergson's Creative Evolution and the Interaction Between Humankind and the Environment in D.H. Lawrence's Australian Fiction

The D.H. Lawrence Review. 2016. Vol. 41. No. 1. P. 89-107.

This paper explores the presence of a volcanic evolutionary process similiar to that posited by Henri Bergson in D.H. Lawrence's two novels set in Australia - Kangaroo and The Boy in the Bush. The paper also explores Lawrence's level of acquaintance with Bergson's ideas, and suggests why his familiarity may previously have been underestimated.
