Sons and Lovers is widely considered by critics and readers alike as D.H. Lawrence's masterpiece and a classic interpretation of the Oedipal complex. Surely one of the greatest autobiographical novels ever written, it tells the story of Paul Morel, a sensitive artist with a far stronger attachment to his mother than his working-class, alcoholic father. Searching for love and human connection, Paul is torn between two very different women, but neither of them measures up to his mother.

As I was raised not far from Eastwood, I found it exciting. I came to the conclusion that "DH Lawrence", portrayed as "Paul Moral" had a very unhealthy relationship with his possessive Mother. Which prevented him from truly loving any other woman. I deeply sympathized with "Jesse", portrayed as "Miriam". She gave him everything, her heart and soul belonged to him. In return he betrayed her, by leading her on and breaking her heart. Jesse Chambers personal accounts of their relationship is a must, (DH Lawrence, a personal account).

When I read this book I was at the age when I was dreaming of breaking away from home and living life on my own. I had my first girl friend with which I spent many an afternoon necking in some shady bower. Do I need to say I identified with the central character? My dad was not some grimy coal miner but a white-collar middle executive with the phone company. My mom was hardly an intellectual although she had a cool record album of the soundtrack to “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers”. Aside from that I KNEW my life was just like Paul Morel’s! I ran so quickly through this book I was propelled on through much other work by Lawrence: The Rainbow, Women in Love, Aaron’s Rod, Lady Chatterley’s Lover, short stories, poems etc. until I ground to a halt somewhere in Kangaroo, Etruscan Places, and/or The Plumed Serpent. Shortly after reading Sons and Lovers I learned who Wendy Hiller was and gained a new respect for Trevor Howard.

Lawrence describes the destructive power of love. Commendable.
