Publisher's Summary

Penguin Classics presents D. H. Lawrence’s Sons and Lovers, adapted for audio and available as a digital download as part of the Penguin English Library series. Read by Paul Copley.

"She was a brazen hussy."

"She wasn’t. - And she was pretty, wasn’t she?"

"I didn’t look..."

"And tell your girls, my son, that when they’re running after you, they’re not to come and ask your mother for you - tell them that - brazen baggage’s you meet at dancing classes."

The marriage of Gertrude and Walter Morel has become a battleground. Repelled by her uneducated and sometimes violent husband, delicate Gertrude devotes her life to her children, especially to her sons, William and Paul - determined they will not follow their father into working down the coal mines. But conflict is evitable when Paul seeks to escape his mother’s suffocating grasp through relationships with women his own age. Set in Lawrence’s native Nottinghamshire, Sons and Lovers is a highly autobiographical and compelling portrayal of childhood, adolescence and the clash of generations.

Part of a series of vintage recordings taken from the Penguin Archives. Affordable, collectable, quality productions - perfect for on-the-go listening.
