About This Book
Sons and Lovers is a highly autobiographical and compelling portrayal of childhood, adolescence, and the price of family bonds. Repelled by her uneducated and sometimes violent husband, delicate Gertrude Morel devotes her life to her sons. But conflict is inevitable when Paul seeks relationships with women to escape the suffocating grasp of his mother. As profoundly affecting today as it was nearly a century ago, this is the peerless Lawrence at his most personal.
* Includes a new introduction, chronology, and further reading

  • The Plumed Serpent

    The Plumed Serpent
    Touring Mexico, Kate Leslie is at first repelled by its “primitive” culture and the fervor of the country in the throes of the Mexican Revolution. When she meets Mexican general Don Cipriano, though, everything changes. He and the philosophical Don Ramón introduce Kate to their primeval religious beliefs, and Kate surrenders to a side of herself she did not know was there. The Plumed Serpent was written in author D. H. Lawrence’s distinctive style, exploring the hidden desires and behaviors present in all of us. The novel was penned while the author was living in New Mexico on what is now the D. H. Lawrence Ranch. HarperPerennial Classics brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.
