about

(Book Jacket Status: Jacketed)Introduction by David EllisThe struggle for power at the heart of a family in conflict, the mysteries of sexual initiation, and the pain of irretrievable loss are the universal motifs with which D. H. Lawrence fashions one of the world’s most original autobiographical novels.Gertrude Morel is a refined woman who married beneath her and has come to loathe her brutal, working-class husband. She focuses her passion instead on her two sons, who return her love and despise their father. Trouble begins when Paul Morel, a budding artist, falls in love with a young woman who seems capable of rivaling his mother for possession of his soul. In the ensuing battle, he finds his path to adulthood tragically impeded by the enduring power of his mother’s grasp. Published on the eve of World War I, SONS AND LOVERS confirmed Lawrence’s genius and inaugurated the controversy over his explicit writing about sexuality and human relationships that would follow him to the end of his career.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not my cup of tea I had to read this for school and I didn't enjoy it. Since it was for a 20th century literature course I assume that it was an important work in its time but I don't understand why it has so much hype. The themes and plot didn't feel original or appeal to me. Maybe the topic was intriguing and made it a classic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Novel This is really a fantastic novel. The relationships between the mother and the sons are portrayed very well. The scene where the son buys an umbrella for his mother, and the description of how she carries it proudly around with her is especially well done.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok This was ok but I'm not sure why it's considered such a great novel. Maybe in it's period it was important or groundbreaking.
