Sons and lovers

"This new collection of critical essays on Sons and Lovers brings together twelve modern responses to the novel from a variety of perspectives, including those informed by psychoanalysis, feminism and the study of literature and society. The Introduction situates these essays in the context of modern developments in critical theory and provides an overview of the critical debate on the novel. The volume provides a stimulating insight not only into Lawrence's novel, but also into the whole debate about the variety of contemporary critical approaches."--BOOK JACKET
