Joy Das [4]


Abstract: Generally, a literary fiction gets its accomplishment with the skilful delineation of the characters and its relationships. D. H. Lawrence is known for his mastery over this and his Sons and Lovers is no exception. In this novel, colourful portrayal of the characters and their relationships attracts the readers’ attention to a great extent. The struggle between spirituality and sexuality, in other words love and lust is artistically drawn throughout the novel. The intent of this paper is to analyze and evaluate Lawrence’s representation of love and lust to understand the complex relationships among the characters with special reference to the prominent critics and theorists like Sigmund Freud, Frank Kermode, Kate Millet, and Helen Fisher.
