This vintage volume contains D. H. Lawrence's seminal 1913 novel, "Sons and Lovers." It tells the story of Paul Morel, a young man and budding artist, whose complex relationships with a doting mother, a violent father, and a young female devotee, constitute the main themes of his live. The Modern Library ranked "Sons and Lovers" ninth on their 'Top 100 Best Novels of the 20th Century'. The novel originally received a lukewarm critical reception, but is today considered a literary masterpiece. This fantastic piece of literature would make for a worthy addition to any bookshelf, and is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Lawrence's work. David Herbert Richards Lawrence (1885 - 1930) was a seminal English novelist, poet, playwright, and essayist. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition.
