Sons and Lovers lays fully bare the souls of men and earth. Few books tell such whole, complicated truths about the permutations of love as resolutely without resolution. It's nothing short of searing to be brushed by humanity in this manner. Fan of this book? Help us introduce it to others by writing a better introduction for it. It's quick and easy, click here.

DH Lawrence's 100-year-old novel Sons and Lovers celebrated
I am about pages in and I am fed up. I can't seem to sympathize with his soap-opera characters and Paul, though we've watched him grown up, doesn't seem developed enough. Ugh, I guess you can't like all the classics. Posted By Dr.

Mrs Morel and Paul are the major characters in 'Sons and Lovers'. Yet Mrs Morel is even less likable than her son Paul. Objectionable is the smothering of her sons, her sustained vendetta against Miriam, and her pretentious bias in alienating her husband from both his sons. She soon drives Morel to drink and dissipation.
Clara's treatment of her husband is little better. Mrs Morel death is a blessing in more ways than one. At the end of the book, we have as much sympathy for the drunkards, Baxter Dawes and Morel, as for anyone. But perhaps that's true to life. Baxter Dawes is a broken man: sick, poor, abandoned by his wife, jobless, and accepting charity even from Paul, his adversary. Yet, Paul regularly visits the sick man and later invites Clara along to spend a day at a cottage with Baxter and himself. Can we understand Paul's behaviour?
Both Paul and Clara seem unable to sustain an intimate relationship. The parallels are intriguing. Just as Paul behaves harshly and unfairly to Miriam, Clara has good reason to be ashamed of her behaviour towards Baxter, who seems as fully committed and faithful to Clara as Miriam is to Paul. Suffering an indefinable angst, Clara rejects Baxter as Paul does Miriam.
I suspect Paul is attracted to Baxter, like a moth to flame, owing to the perspective that Paul gains on his teetering relationship with Miriam. Paul leaves us with a note of sour optimism. I could not help but to instantly like Mariam upon first meeting her. There was something endearing about her, and genuine, as well as a goodness and an honest that gave her charm and made my heart go out to her, made me root for her. I believe she held a very deep love for Paul and that he was meant for her they had a deep and soulful connection, and I think it was the deepness of it, and perhaps the power of it, which scared him and caused him to start to rile against her.
He had a fear of commitment so he turned from her for the sake of something lesser then what they share, that was not as daunting to him. Clara I could not help but a sort of instinctual dislike of, to me she is a fraud and that is the thing of which most irritated me about her, is that she is not true to herself, she tried to pass herself in the guise of a strong woman, but as her char develops more, it seems she is in fact really rather weak and only pretending to be something she is not.
For all her talk and pomp, she did not take very long to submit to Paul despite her previous railing against men. I also think it is quite cruel the way Paul's family treated Mariam while they took Clara in with warm embrace, though I think this has a lot to do with the fact that Mrs. Morel does not see Clara as a threat, she knows that Paul's relationship with Clara is fickle, based purely upon the physical, so while Clara can have his body, she will still keep her sons soul and heart to herself, and this is why she was set against Mariam, because Mariam's relationship with Paul was more true and so she would take his soul and heart fully, and Mrs.
Morel feared greatly to have to let her son go, so she set to drive Mraiam off, and would settle to see him in a shallow relationship so she can still keep him to herself. Considering the way Clara so no problem and was so quick to move in on Paul I think it was quite cruel and petty of her, particularly being a woman whom is supposed to be pro suffrage and woman's rights, to have gossiped in such a way against Maraim behind her back to Mrs.
Morel, because she thinks that now that Paul is with her, he ought to cast Maraim off completely despite her own flirtations with him while he was still involved with Mariam, and I think Paul ought to have spoken up in defense of Maraim when he had caught them in their act. Paul seems to be in contradiction of himself and is always trying to find some excuse, or perhaps he does not yet know what he truly wants. But he is constantly going back and forth between first proclaiming his wish to be married, and then doing a complete and suddenly railing about how he could never be wed and does not wish to be tied down to one woman, and will never marry.
He has used this against both Mariam and Clara. First when he was with Mariam he would try and tell her that they could not continue on together because he wished to marry, but they could not marry if they could not be physical with each other. So when Maraim submitted to him and they grew closer, he drew away from her and began to say suddenly he could not be with her because he felt to tied down with her and could not marry and would never marry.
So he ended up with Clara because she was safe, because she is already married but separated from her husband, but then as they began to grow closer together, he begins turning the tables around again, and tells her that he wants to marry, but she does not want to marry him because she refuses to divorce from her husband. It seems that he is stuck between both his fear of commitment, as well as his not wanting to be truly alone.
Whenever he begins to get close to a woman, or when things begin to become serious, he suddenly tries to find some excuse and gets restless and upset within the relationship and draws away, but at the same time, he can never bring himself to just completely break it off. So he tries to keep it going as long as he can while still keeping at bay from him.
