Lawrence, D H - Sons and Lovers - ( Item 124046 )

Published in London by Folio Society. 2013. First Thus. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Near Fine slipcase. Slight marks to panels of slipcase. Three-quarter bound in buckram with a Modigliani paper side, printed with a design by Anne-Marie Jones. Set in Dante. 496 pages. Frontispiece and 9 colour illustrations. Book size: 9½" x 6¼". Considered by many to be Lawrence’s greatest novel, Sons and Lovers is introduced here by Colm Toibin. Illustrated by Anne-Marie Jones. E. M. Forster described Lawrence as 'the greatest imaginative novelist of our generation' while Philip Larkin said of Sons and Lovers that 'nearly every page of it is absolutely perfect'. With great freshness and sensitivity, Lawrence gives us a universal portrait of a family: 'Home was home, and they loved it with a passion of love, whatever the suffering had been.' In Paul’s troubled romances with Miriam and Clara, Lawrence paints a tragic picture of the relations between men and women at the time. Lawrence also captures the life of a Nottinghamshire mining village at the turn of the century; the men in their 'pit-dirt', the families collecting the colliers' wages on a Friday, and children hunting for blackberries in the nearby countryside. Published by Folio to mark the centenary of the book, this edition is set from the unexpurgated text first published by Cambridge University Press in 1992. The introduction is by the internationally award-winning author Colm Tóibín. Describing Paul’s Oedipal longings for his mother’s love and his father’s destruction, he says that 'Lawrence did not need Freud to write this; he knew it.' Anne-Marie Jones has created ten hauntingly enigmatic images, using a mixture of painting and digital artwork.
