About this Recording

LAWRENCE, D.H.: Sons and Lovers (Abridged)

Sons and Lovers, Lawrence’s third published novel, was written by the author at the height of his literary powers. The story of class differences (the relationship between a woman of middle class family and a miner) in the tough world of coal mining, it brought a refreshing realism to literature. It remains a challenging text (and studied widely). It is particularly effective on audiobook in the hands of the reader Paul Slack who comes from Nottinghamshire.
