This casebook on D. H. Lawrence's Sons and Lovers is the first to address itself to the full text of the novel, first published in 1992. The introduction discusses the novel's composition and the range of approaches adopted by critics since its original publication in 1913. The nine essaysthat follow demonstrate the full extent of the contemporary critical response, from studies of narrative technique to psychoanalytic and gender-based analysis, and set the critical agenda for its study in the twenty-first century. This collection also reproduces excerpts from Lawrence's lettersrelating to Sons and Lovers, along with a full transcription of Alfred Booth Kuttner's 1916 Freudian analysis of the work.
John Worthen is Emeritus Professor at the University of Nottingham. Andrew Harrison is a tutor in English literature at the University of Warwick.
