Drawing ?on his own childhood and adolescence, Lawrence depicts the early married life of the Morels – the father a hardworking, hard-drinking Nottinhamshire coal miner, the mother a refined woman of middle-class aspirations. Born into the family battle, their son Paul Morel initially takes his mother’s part, until in adolescence he meets and falls in love with a young girl, Miriam, and discovers a new conflict of loyalties.
Sons and Lovers portrays the sexual and emotional struggle of Paul Morel, caught between the women he attempted to love, and in it D. H. Lawrence transforms autobiography into art.
