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.

-- Alfred Kazin

"There is no novel in english literature which comes so close to the skin of life of working class people, for it records their feelings in their own terms."

-- V. S. Pritchett

(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.

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. Included here are poems about the tie to the mother, about Miriam, about the trauma of the mother's lingering mortal illness, and about the poignant aftermath of her death during which the son suffered self-abandonment to grief and a sense of desolation described in the novel as a nuit blanche or 'white night.'
