David Herbert Lawrence was one of the most influential and controversial British writers of the twentieth century, and Sons and Lovers is his most autobiographical novel. In its pages, he came of age as a novelist by re-creating—through the story of Paul Morel, an artistic boy with a fierce attachment to his mother—his own formative years in an English coal-mining village. Frank O’Connor once said that Sons and Lovers starts out as a nineteenth-century novel and ends up as a twentieth-century one; as a result, readers are treated in its pages to both the rich setting and narrative rootedness of the former and the exhilaratingly uneasy explorations of psychological and sexual dynamics that characterize the latter.
