Description

Paul Morel both loves and is repelled by his mother, a good woman who makes up for her poor marriage to a violent, uneducated man by lavishing all her attention on her sons. But as Paul grows up and takes lovers, the feelings between mother and son will produce only terrible conflict between what Paul wants, and what he truly needs.

H. 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, knows that he must struggle for independence if he is not to repeat his parents' failure. Lawrence's powerful description of Paul's single-minded efforts to define himself sexually and emotionally through relationships with two women-the innocent, old-fashioned Miriam Leivers and the experienced, provocatively modern Clara Dawes-makes this a novel as much for the beginning of the twenty-first century as it was for the beginning of the twentieth., Sons and lovers, Sons and lovers /D.H.

The autobiographical novel tells the story of Paul Morel, sensitive and talented son of an English coal miner in Nottinghamshire. His mother, Gertrude, the educated daughter of Puritanical middle-class parents, has married the miner in the heat of physical attraction. The marriage soon disintegrates; Walter Morel takes to drink and beats his wife and children, and Mrs. Morel pours all her possessive love upon her sons, especially Paul. The novel is concerned with Paul's painful introduction to the commercial world, his discovery of books and art, his growing discontent with his background of poverty and gloom, and his developing talent for painting. It records his lover affairs with Miriam and with Clara Dawes. Because of the strong bond of love between him and his mother, he is never able to give his affection wholly to either of the women. 'Sons and Lovers,' which was attacked on its publication because of its frankness in dealing with sexual matters, is more naturalistic than Lawrence's later work. It is remarkable for its portrayal of English mining life, its vivid characterizations, and its poetic descriptions of nature., The Modern library of the world's best books, 333., The relationship between a middle-class woman and a coal miner is observed in this highly studied piece of literature., Title from title screen (viewed March 3, 2011)., Toronto ;New York :Bantam Books,1985., UKMengUKMBAKERBWKUKYDXCPBTCTAOCLCGNLGGCLTPBDXOCLCFOCLCOOCLCQNZPPCOCLCOOCL, Unabridged., VIAC, Vance, Simon.|Narrator, Working class families, Young men, Z0VIA, Z2308Recorded Books, [Prince Frederick, Md.] :[Distributed by] OneClick Digital,[2011], [United States] :Author's Republic :Made available through hoopla,2017., [United States] :Naxos :Made available through hoopla,2000., [United States] :Naxos :Made available through hoopla,2008., [United States] :Tantor Audio :Made available through hoopla,2010., aaf(4)cafsaf01-25-11ma-, analog, audios, caf05-26-17ma-, computerc, data file, digital, e-uk-en, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/aut_9781518941825_180.jpeg, online resourcecr, othersz, qBook., qFiction., qafea05-02-17mn-, qafea06-08-17mn-, qafea06-09-15mn-, qafea06-10-15mn-, qafea06-11-15mn-, spoken wordspw, texttxt, ukblsr, unmediatedn, volumenc, xv, 416 p. ;18 cm., xxviii, 492 pages :illustrations ;20 cm., ℗2003.
