Abstract

Part of a themed volume on Lawrence and the Arts, this essay looks at some of the British composers working within the writer D.H.Lawrence's period to explore their common interest in the myth of Pan. That interest is set in the broader cultural context of the early twentieth century and analyses specific examples of the musical appropriation of the Pan myth in ways that engage them in lucid and fruitful dialogue with Lawrence's own well-known fascination with Pan. The main composers covered are Granville Bantock, Arnold Bax and John Ireland.
