Book Review
Perhaps the most famous of Lawrence's novels, the 1928 Lady Chatterley's Lover is no longer distinguished for the once-shockingly explicit treatment of its subject matter--the adulterous affair between a sexually unfulfilled upper-class married woman and the game keeper who works for the estate owned by her wheelchaired husband. Now that we're used to reading about sex, and seeing it in the movies, it's apparent that the novel is memorable for better reasons: namely, that Lawrence was a masterful and lyrical writer, whose story takes us bodily into the world of its characters. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. This new biography by respected Lawrence scholar Worthen (D.H. Lawrence: The Early Years 1885– 1912) considers the writer's life and career in the context of what Worthen convincingly shows to have been a lifelong, instinctive rebellion against his family, his culture, his country and the enigmas of his own body. In developing his thesis, Worthen provides perceptive links between the people in Lawrence's life and his fictional characters. A stylishly written, smoothly developed analysis of Lawrence's conflicted psyche illuminates his love-hate relationship with his mother, his early platonic and romantic attachments, his interaction with the writers, artists and thinkers of his generation, and his grand passion for Frieda von Richthofen Weekley, the sexually uninhibited German aristocrat...

From Library Journal
The published editions of Women in Love , probably Lawrence's greatest novel, have always been remarkably corrupt due to a lengthy, complex process of revision and transcription, a threatened libel suit, and numerous unauthorized bowdlerizations. The editors of this new Cambridge Edition have labored scrupulously to produce an authoritative text. What emerges, if not dramatically different, is fresher and more immediate. The introduction provides a valuable history of the novel's composition, revision, publication, and reception, and though the elaborate textual apparatus is strictly for advanced students of bibliography, the notes are splendid. Lawrence's 1919 Foreword and two early discarded chapters are also included. The recovery of a modern classic. Keith Cushman, Univ. of North Carolina, GreensboroCopyright...

Book Description
Called the most widely-read English novel of the twentieth century, D. H. Lawrence’s largely autobiographical Sons and Lovers tells the story of Paul Morel, a young artist growing into manhood in a British working-class community near the Nottingham coalfields. His mother Gertrude, unhappily married to Paul’s hard-drinking father, devotes all her energies to her son. They develop a powerful and passionate relationship, but eventually tensions arise when Paul falls in love with a girl and seeks to escape his family ties. Torn between his desire for independence and his abiding attachment to his loving but overbearing mother, Paul struggles to define himself sexually and emotionally through his relationships with two women—the innocent, old-fashioned Miriam Leivers, and the experienced,...

Book Review
Sons and Lovers was the first modern portrayal of a phenomenon that later, thanks to Freud, became easily recognizable as the Oedipus complex. Never was a son more indentured to his mother's love and full of hatred for his father than Paul Morel, D.H. Lawrence's young protagonist. Never, that is, except perhaps Lawrence himself. In his 1913 novel he grappled with the discordant loves that haunted him all his life--for his spiritual childhood sweetheart, here called Miriam, and for his mother, whom he transformed into Mrs. Morel. It is, by Lawrence's own account, a book aimed at depicting this woman's grasp: "as her sons grow up she selects them as lovers--first the eldest, then the second. These sons are urged into life by their reciprocal love of their mother--urged on and on. But when they come to manhood, they...

Book Description
7 of the best Lawrence stories, each turning on some facet of sexual feeling, attitude or convention. "The Prussian Officer" focuses on an aristocratic captain’s homoerotic obsession for his young orderly. "The Shadow in the Rose Garden" and "The White Stocking" deal with sexual jealousy. "Daughters of the Vicar" brilliantly describes two exceedingly class-conscious mating rituals. "The Christening," "Second Best" and "Odour of Chrysanthemums" etch memorable portraits of a family’s shame at an illegitimate birth, a country courtship and a brutish marriage abbreviated by death. Note.

From AudioFile
In this 1915 saga of several generations of a Midlands family, Lawrence expresses an almost mystical tie between sex and the "rhythm of eternity." Peter Jeffrey communicates this and the superb, complex characterizations with resonance, clarity, maturity and finesse. He's a superb narrator. He misses the author's sinewy virility but otherwise delivers a more interesting story than Lawrence wrote. Y.R.

Review
“[Lawrence] had that quality of genius which sucks out of ordinary experience essences strange or unknown to men.” —Anaïs Nin

Book Description
Torn between his passion for two women and his abiding attachment to his mother, young Paul Morel struggles with his desire to please everyone--particularly himself. Lawrence's highly autobiographical novel unfolds against the backdrop of his native Nottinghamshire coal fields, amidst a working-class family dominated by a brutish father and a loving but overbearing mother. Lushly descriptive passages range from celebrations of natural beauty and sensual pleasures to searing indictments of the social blight engendered by industrialism. Essential reading for any study of twentieth-century literature. Unabridged reprint of the classic 1913 edition.
