LIT/A/3: Sons and Lovers by D. H. Lawrence
Sons and Lovers is the most popular novel of D.H. Lawrence. One of the best modernist novels, it is also the first English psychological novel, after the publication of which in 1913 Lawrence became well established among the front rank novelists of England. Not only was it well received by the critics but it was also appreciated by the reading public. The first draft or version of this novel was written in 1910, titled Paul Morel. Later after certain changes the novel was renamed as "Sons and Lovers". The novel is largely autobiographical, presenting the Freudian Oedipus imbroglio in classic completeness.
