H Lawrence, one of my personal favorites, seems to have told a tale no truer than his largely autobiographical Sons and Lovers While all the primary characters have some major defect of character, I felt the most pity for the protagonist Paul Morel a real mama s boy and Miriam his childhood semi sweetheart Mama Morel didn t as much dislike Miriam as she did the idea that she would lose control over Paul you love me so much, you want to put me in your pocket And there I will die smothered.
H Lawrence, Sons and LoversTo me, Sons and Lovers is the best literary illustration of the devastating impact a parent here, a mother can have on a child and his her descendants, even from the grav How do you leave a mother who associates her life s meaning and fulfillment to you and your achievements, without breaking her heart How do you surrender all your passion to a lover while leaving some for the woman who gave birth to you, reared you, and loved you Should a man give greater love to his mother or his lover How do you achieve balance between the women in your life D.
H Lawrence s semi autobiographical novel Sons and Lovers displays the pendulum of a young man s love swinging to and fro from his deep bond with his mother to his passionate relationships with his lovers It is a fragile pendulum that slowly cracks and inevitably breaks And in the same way she waited for him In him was established her life now After all, the life beyond offered very little to Mrs Morel She saw that our chance for doing is here, and doing counted with her Paul was going to prove that she had Sons and Lovers is an excellent book on several fronts It is a story of a young man who is a budding writer One sees the poet in him He is sensitive, forlorn and deeply contemplative He possesses all the mythic features we often assign to artists We see him discussing books with his girlfriend, his delight at getting published and earning a little money This aspect of his life, without his other difficulties, might be of supreme interest for those who harbor the same sort of ambition.
This young man is Paul who is extremely attached to his mother His mother marries Walter Morel, socially her inferior, and later comes to regret her decision Her oldest son dies young, and now she has nothing to hold onto in her life except Paul, her youngest son She focuses all her attention on him As Paul grows up, he begins to see girls First, he meets Miriam who, like Paul, has a refin

There has been a robbery A theft on a grand scale Cleansed of the detritus of a self, a presence, an ability to act on desire, he waits to be alit upon The fretwork strums a baroque dirge as an accompaniment to realizations of the smallness of any life upon the vastness of the universe and its grand seduction of infinite stars the largeness of the interiority of ones passions and the labyrinth they must circumvent Their interactions and the labyrinthine yearnings of others result in collisions sparking a cannibalism of blood spotted gore within their circumvented lives.
Lawrence writes this in the style of his time a third person narrator who does not hesitate to drift from points of views occasionally to the detriment of the narrative s pace He dilutes the meaning of characters gestures and movements by explanation and confirmation There is a doubt within him the reader I started the year transfixed by the visceral floral and fiery passion of Lawrence s The Rainbow my review HERE Its rich earth ripened buds of promise into irresistible blooms of vibrant delicacy But reading this at the end of the year, I feltlike I d been dragged through barren mud Perhaps that s fitting for the story of a miner s family There is lyrical imagery and caressive talk see quotes, below , but far too much plodding Janet and John prose, and characters who infuriated me My 3 rating is generous.
On the Psychiatrist s CouchThe plot is straightforward and heavily autobiographical Gertrude marries beneath herself, to Walter Morel, a miner It quickly becomes an unhappy marriage he drinks and loses money , but several children are born, and she strives to raise them up, rather than merely raise them Once they are grown, and the eldest son, Wil The storyline is in the name,Sons and Lovers, but what you don t expect are the subtleties of the Oedipus complex or Freudian allegory It was a surprisingly sensational read for me, especially since earlier this year, I gave myself a classics challenge to read and re read a few classics just for the sake of it erase the disdain of forced readings in high school, college and grad school read just for how it makes me feel, not because everyone else is doing itSons and Loversends my personal challenge, the twentieth read and most likely the last classic I read in 2013 The best one I ve read all year Here we have the Morel family There is the miner who falls in love with the sophisticated woman and lies to her about his financial situation They move to the Nottingham coalfields, get married and have children three boys, one girl The marriage i
