  • June 26: Sons and Lovers by D.H. Lawrence

Sons and Lovers is a novel spanning two vastly different generations. Paul Morel is born at the dawn of a new century. His mother, Gertrude, has spent her life valued only as a wife and mother, with no thought being given to any dreams or ambitions of her own. Because she blames her husband for her state, Gertrude invests everything into her children. Paul and his mother are very close, as she sees in him a hope for her own aspirations. They are so close that he feels guilt in trying to live his own life in a world that is trying to shrug off the confines and strictures of the Victorian Era.

Highly autobiographical, D.H. Lawrence wrote Sons and Lovers, his third novel, in 1913. As with many of his works, it sparked a wide range of reviews from the Manchester Guardians belief that it was “an achievement of the first quality” to the Nation’s description of “commonplace and decadent.” 

Check for available copies of Sons and Lovers by D.H. Lawrence at the Circulation Desk or on the online catalog where you can find the book and CD. It is also available through Digital Downloads (PDF) in our Digital Library. Please join us for your discussion on June 26!
