Abstract [en]

D.H. Lawrence’s novel Sons and Lovers, written in 1913 is an autobiographical novel that captures the Morel’s disharmonious family situation. Critics have many times looked at Mr. Morel and his behavior to offer an explanation for the disharmony. However, by applying a historical and socioeconomic, gender and psychoanalytical perspective to an analysis of Mrs. Morel this analysis will focus on her many actions and behavior in an attempt to offer another explanation for the disharmony in the narrative. The analysis will mainly focus on her relationship with her sons, especially Paul. The conclusion of the analysis shows that Mrs. Morel through her over attached relationship with Paul led to three main consequences: his mental downfall, his incapability to have normal relationships, and the collapse of his individuality.
