D H Lawrence: Sons and Lovers

Sons and Lovers is one of the landmark novels of the twentieth century. When it appeared in 1913, it was immediately recognized as the first great modern restatement of the oedipal drama, and it is now widely considered the major work of D. H. Lawrence’s early period. This intensely autobiographical novel recounts the story of Paul Morel, a young artist growing to manhood in a British working-class family rife with conflict. The author’s vivid evocation of the all-consuming nature of possessive love and sexual attraction makes this one of his most powerful novels.

This new edition contains an introduction by Geoff Dyer.

Published: US, Modern Library Classics, 1999
