  • "Since its publication, in 1913, D.H. Lawrence's powerful and passionate third novel stands as one of the greatest autobiographical novels of the twentieth century. Here is the story of artist Paul Morel as a young man, his powerful relationship with his possessive mother, his passionate love affair with Miriam Leivers, his intense liaison with married Clara Dawes. Here, too, England's Derbyshire springs to life with both its sooty mining villages and deep green pastures, a setting as full of contrasts as the deep emotions which rule this remarkable book. Sons and Lovers is rich with universal truths about relationships; moreover, it brims with what Alfred Kazin has called Lawrence's "magic sympathy, between himself and life." Continues Mr. Kazin: "No other writer of his imaginative standing has in our time written books that are so open to life ... Since for Lawrence the great subject of literature was not the writer's own consciousness but consciousness between people, the living felt relationship between them, it was his very concern to represent the 'shimmer' of life, the 'wholeness' ... that made possible his brilliance as a novelist.""@en
  • "The story of Paul Morel, a painter growing to manhood in working-class England and is caught in a conflict between his possessive mother and his love of two young, beautiful women."@en
  • "(Book Jacket Status: Jacketed) Introduction by David Ellis The 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. From the Hardcover edition."@en

  • "Paul is an artistic young man coming of age in a gritty English mining community, struggling to free himself from the influence of his devoted and strong-willed mother as he searches for love and attempts to establish his own identity."
  • "Widely regarded as D.H. Lawrence's masterpiece, Sons and Lovers is a sprawling, multi-generational look at family relationships, class dynamics, and the intimate ties with others that pull young adults toward independence. This largely autobiographical novel made Lawrence's reputation as a writer -- it's a must read for fans of classic literary fiction."@en
  • "Called the most widely read English novel of the twentieth century, D.H. Lawrence's largely auto-biographical "Sons and Lovers tells the story of Paul Morel, a young artist growing into manhood in a British working-class community near the Nottingham coalfields. His mother Gertrude, unhappily married to Paul's hard-drinking father, devotes all her energies to her son. They develop a powerful and passionate relationship, but eventually tensions arise when Paul falls in love with a girl and seeks to escape his family. Heralding Lawrence's mature period, "Sons and Lovers vividly evokes the all-consuming nature of possessive love and sexual attraction. Lushly descriptive and deeply emotional, it is rich in universal truths about human relationships."@en

  • "D.H. Lawrence's most widely read novel and one of the great works of twentieth-century literature, Sons and Lovers is now printed in full for the first time. In 1913, at the time of its first publication, Lawrence reluctantly agreed to the removal of no fewer than eighty passages which until now have never been restored. Here at last is the novel in the form that Lawrence himself wanted - a tenth longer than the incomplete and expurgated version that all previous editions have reprinted. Above all, here is a text that fulfills the plurals of the title: a book about William Morel as well as his younger brother Paul. The parents' blazing rows are presented in full, and the sexual encounters remind the reader how far the author was ahead of his time - some can surprise, even shock us now. Eighty years on, the novel is finally freed from interference and distortion with this complete and authoritative text. In a foreword the editors Helen Baron and Carl Baron summarise the composition and publication history."

  • "Lawrence's first major novel was also the first in the English language to explore ordinary working-class life from the inside. No writer before or since has written so well about the intimacies enforced by a tightly knit mining community and by a family where feelings are never hidden for long. When the marriage between Walter Morel and his sensitive, high-minded wife begins to break down, the bitterness of their frustration seeps into their children's lives. Their second son, Paul, craves the warmth of family and community, but knows that he must sacrifice everything in the struggle for independence if he is not to repeat his parents' failure."

  • "Sons and Lovers was the first modern portrayal of a phenomenon that later, thanks to Freud, became easily recognizable as the Oedipus complex. Never was a son more indentured to his mother's love and full of hatred for his father than Paul Morel, D.H. Lawrence's young protagonist. Never, that is, except perhaps Lawrence himself. In his 1913 novel he grappled with the discordant loves that haunted him all his life."@en

Miriam is supportive and understanding of his artistic nature but appeals mainly to his higher nature; Clara Dawes becomes his mistress but she is married and will not divorce her husband.
