Paul Morel, the second eldest son of Gertrude and William, in D.H. Lawrence's novel works in a nearby factory while painting on the side. His older brother died of a skin disease, and Mrs. Morel was overcome by despondency. Paul's father is a drunken coal miner who beats his wife which terrifies Paul and presses him to hate his father. Gertrude uses this intense reaction to find new allegiance in her life with Paul and to reactivate her passion for him into a desire which is volatile but not sexual, and they are inseparable. Paul desperately, however, spends much time with Miriam Levier, a modest religious girl, but Mrs. Morel disapproves of her because she believes the Miriam is trying to take her son away. Paul is also visiting an older, more sensual woman, Clara Dawes, separated from her husband who discovers Paul's involvement and brutally beats him one night. Eventually Paul leaves the working-class mining world and moves into the society of commerce where he has a fair accomplishment as a painter. His recurrent relationships with these three women are many times horrifying, and Lawrence does not diminish the impact of their vigor or avoid the elaborate truths about the transformations of love without ambition or intent. Paul must wrestle with similar disparate sympathies that will trouble him his whole life.

Sons and Lovers is a novel by the English writer D. H. Lawrence. The Modern Library placed it ninth on their list of the 100 best novels of the 20th century. While the novel initially incited a lukewarm critical reception, along with allegations of obscenity, it is today regarded as a masterpiece by many critics and is often regarded as Lawrence's finest achievement. The refined daughter of a "good old burgher family," Gertrude Coppard meets a rough-hewn miner at a Christmas dance and falls into a whirlwind romance characterized by physical passion. But soon after her marriage to Walter Morel, she realizes the difficulties of living off his meager salary in a rented house. The couple fight and drift apart and Walter retreats to the pub after work each day. Gradually, Mrs. Morel's affections shift to her sons beginning with the oldest, William. As a boy, William is so attached to his mother that he doesn't enjoy the fair without her. As he grows older, he defends her against his father's occasional violence. Eventually, he leaves their Nottinghamshire home for a job in London, where he begins to rise up into the middle class. He is engaged, but he detests the girl's superficiality. He dies and Mrs. Morel is heartbroken, but when Paul catches pneumonia she rediscovers her love for her second son. Both repulsed by and drawn to his mother, Paul is afraid to leave her but wants to go out on his own, and needs to experience love. Gradually, he falls into a relationship with Miriam, a farm girl who attends his church. The two take long walks and have intellectual conversations about books but Paul resists, in part because his mother looks down on her. At Miriam's family's farm, Paul meets Clara Dawes, a young woman with, apparently, feminist sympathies who has separated from her husband, Baxter.
