Sons and Lovers

Novel, Künstlerroman by D. H. Lawrence


Sons and Lovers, Lawrence's third published novel, was written at the height of his literary powers. The initial romance between a woman of 'good family' and a miner does not last long into marriage as they face tough economic realities. The differences in background affect the next generation - their two sons William and Paul. Sons and Lovers remains a challenging text and is studied widely. It is particularly effective on audiobook in the hands of the reader Paul Slack who comes from Nottinghamshire.
