Overview

David Herbert Lawrence was an English writer of novels, plays, poetry and essays. Lawrence was born to a large working class family, his father was a miner and his mother was a schoolmistress. Lawrence based some of his early works off his family life which often featured problems between his parents.

Lawrence was not afraid to give ink to his opinions, some of which created enemies in his country. Eventually this led to much of his work being censored or misrepresented. Lawrence and his wife Frieda Weekley would eventually leave England soon after the end of World War I. Lawrence would only briefly return to England and mostly traveled for the remainder of his life. As Lawrence’s health began to fail, he and his wife finally settled in a villa near Florence, Italy. Some of Lawrence’s best known works are Sons and Lovers, Women in Love, and Lady Chatterley’s Lover, the last of which was published just 2 years before his death.

Lawrence’s Sons and Lovers is the story of a young artist named Paul Morel. The novel is heavily based off Lawrence’s early life as it provides an in depth look at family and the working class. It also takes place in a mining community and details the strong bond between the main character and his mother, similar to the one between Lawrence and his mother. This edition of Sons and Lovers includes a Table of Contents and images of Lawrence, his life, and his works.

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.
