Paul Morel

Product description

This is the first ever edition of the early version of Sons and Lovers, D. H. Lawrence's highly popular autobiographical novel. It is very different from Sons and Lovers, less polished but full of powerful, spontaneous, dramatic writing. The volume also contains documents by Lawrence's girlfriend Jessie Chambers, facsimile pages, maps and scholarly apparatus. This is the first ever edition of the early version of Sons and Lovers, D. H. Lawrence's highly popular autobiographical novel. Amongst all the surviving early drafts of Lawrence's works this is the most different from the final version; as he rewrote, Lawrence discarded many episodes, some of them stories from his childhood not recorded anywhere else. It is less polished than Sons and Lovers, but it is full of powerful, spontaneous, dramatic writing: there is more humour and charm, more raw violence and nervous energy. This volume also contains remarkable documents written by Lawrence's girlfriend Jessie Chambers, the model for Miriam in Paul Morel and in Sons and Lovers, in which she gives Lawrence some hostile criticisms and writes out for him her own versions of some of his episodes. In addition there is a fragment of a novel about his mother's childhood, facsimiles of manuscript pages, maps, and scholarly notes and apparatus.

This hard cover book is in very good condition apart from what looks like an ink stain at the bottom of the leading edge of most pages (see photo). It is the Cambridge Edition of the works of D H Lawrence and is editied by Helen Baron
