Sons And Lovers

Set in a mining area in the north of England, Sons And Lovers by D H Lawrence, can be described as a “coming of age” novel. The vague use of language and the obscure treatment of sex in the story reflects the author’s fear of negative public opinion in the early part of the 20th century.
Adapted by Clarice A Ross, with an intermission commentary by Diana Trilling.
