Sons And Lovers
Sons and Lovers (1913) is the semi-autobiographical story of a young man's struggle for emotional independence. Trapped in a violent, loveless marriage to a man she considers socially inferior, Gertrude Morel devotes herself to her sons, William and Paul. When William leaves home and subsequently dies, she pours herself into the relationship with the younger son. Paul is torn between meeting Gertrude's demands and reconciling the conflicting feelings he has for two quite different lovers, Miriam and Clara.
David Herbert Lawrence (D.H. Lawrence) was an English writer and poet. His collected works represent, among other things, an extended reflection upon the dehumanising effects of modernity and industrialisation. Lawrence's writing explores issues such as sexuality, emotional health, vitality, spontaneity, and instinct.
