Sons and Lovers is the moving and explicit account of a young man growing up in a closed mining community. Born into a difficult marriage, Paul Morel is shy, introverted and impressionable. As a young adult he becomes violently caught between the attentions of three women; his influential mother Gertrude, spiritual and devoted Miriam and the sensual and mature Clara. With devastating detail and extraordinary insight D.H. Lawrence gets right to the heart of the matter, exploring the complexities and dangers surrounding human love, attraction and obsession.
