Details: Product Description “.. You love me so much, you want to put me in your pocket. And there I will die smothered.” Following a passionate whirlwind romance with Walter Morel, an unsophisticated, drinking miner, Gertrude Coppard, a refined and delicately molded woman, becomes Mrs. Morel, only to face the difficulties of living in a rented house with her husband’s meagre salary and no satisfaction in life. As they drift apart, Mrs. Morel’s affections shift to her sons. Dedicating her life, first to William, the oldest and then to Paul, her second son, she is determined that they not follow their father. But what happens as the sons enter manhood and come in contact with women? Will Paul be able to escape his mother’s suffocating grasp? Will Mrs. Morel remain a custodian of her sons’ souls? Drawing upon Lawrence’s provincial upbringing, Sons and Lovers is a gripping portrayal of class, family, childhood, adolescence and sexual relationships. Lawrence’s finest achievement, this semi-autobiographical masterpiece is placed ninth on the Modern Library’s list of 100 best novels of the 20th century. About the Author Born in September 1885, David Herbert Lawrence was one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century. He was a novelist, poet, playwright, essayist, literary critic and painter who published under the name D. H. Lawrence. Lawrence’s opinions earned him many enemies and he endured official persecution, censorship and misrepresentation of his creative work throughout the second half of his life, much of which he spent in a voluntary exile which he called his “savage pilgrimage”. at the time of his death, his public reputation was that of a pornographer who had wasted his considerable talents. E. M. Forster, in an obituary notice, challenged this widely held view, describing him as, “The greatest imaginative novelist of our generation.” Later, the influential Cambridge critic F. R. Leavis championed both his artistic integrity and his moral seriousness, placing much of Lawrence’s fiction within the canonical “great tradition” of the English novel.
