What seems to set Lynch apart most strikingly from other puritanical political figures is that he is perceived and celebrated in some quarters not as an integral part of his country's present ideological mainstream but as a serious artist subverting the American soul from within. This essay also discusses and analyzes how the American middle-class is showed out of Lynchs perspective. (Less)
