Overview

David Herbert Lawrence (September 11, 1985 – March 2, 1930) was an English writer. Much of Lawrence’s work was based off his family life which featured tension between his father, a coal mine worker, and his mother who was a schoolmistress.

Lawrence’s opinions as well as the sexual content of some of his works made him a lot of enemies in his homeland and some of his novels were banned for many years. Lawrence and his wife left England after World War I and mostly traveled until Lawrence became ill and the couple finally settled in Florence, Italy. Lawrence’s best known works are Sons and Lovers, Women in Love, and Lady Chatterley’s Lover.

This edition of Sons and Lovers is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and includes illustrations of Lawrence.

This book evokes a complete world as very few others I have read. The main characters are so well written you feel you know them, you sympathize with them, you can see them in your mind. It is also is a very sensual book at times. Lawrence creates sexual tension between the romantic leads, and uses natural settings to heighten those tensions. The book is ultimately about the relationships between the members of a family and their friends, and describes those relationships beautifully, but in the end, to me, sadly.

I read this book for an APLIT project and overall, I thought the book was very good. It was interesting and not hard to read. Some parts drag on a bit and the characters' love affairs can get a little annoying towards the end of the book because it seems as if they can't make up their mind when it comes to being with someone. None the less, I would highly recommend the novel, and although it might take you a while to read, it's worth it.

Sons and lovers is book that deals with a middle class British family everyone can relate to a character. The book deals relationships with family and the main character Paul Morel. The book starts of between how the mother and father and then it talks about the children Paul, William, and his sister. Anyway if you want to read about a british family in the nineteen twenty about their every struggles you should read this book. It will make you laugh, some parts will make you mad especially William and his girlfriend.
