It is purely an autobiographical novel and its roots are located in Lawrence own life.When i was reading this novel it reminded me of the story of Oedipus Rex which i read last year.The Sigmund Freud's theory is comman in both."Sons and Lovers"uses Oedipus Complex as its base for exploring Paul's relation with his mother.Paul could not love Miriam or Clara as he is devoted to his mother.Mrs.Gertrude is leading an unhappy life with his husband Mr.Morel and she turned his loneliness into passionate love of his sons William and later on Paul.Mrs.Morel is jealous over girl friends of his sons.Paul tells her mother that "he wished he had a young mother".But at the end of the novel Paul takes a major step,he overdoses his dying mother with Morpia and reduces her suffering and subvert his Oedipal fate ,as he kills Mrs.Moral and not his father .Paul's reaction was intence at the death of his mother and her death had great psycological effect on Paul's sexuality.

I've been trying to finish this book for ages. I really didn't like it, it's very pastoral and there's no particular plot apart from that of a working-class 19th Century soap-opera.

There were moments in this book that made you pause and reflect. It is a book that highlights the pain as well as joy in relationships and one to return to in the future.
