'Sons and Lovers' Edited with an introduction and notes by Helen Baron and Carl Baron.
The Morel family , who live on the Nottinghamshire coalfields, are beset with conflict. Gertrude Morel, a woman of character and refinement, has become disillusioned with her inarticulate, working-class husband and devotes when Paul falls in love and seeks to escape his family ties. Set in the decades leading up to the outbreak of the First World War, Lawrence's masterpiece reflects the problems of transition between the agricultural past and the industrial future, between one generation and he next, and between childhood and adolescence.
