Respectively born in 1942 and 1989, Michel Tremblay and Xavier Dolan represent two generations of Québécois writers and filmmakers, who have received much critical acclaim for their revolutionizing work about women and sexuality. This special connection between the two inspires the following study as it enables a focus on similar societal issues across several decades. This work examines the ways in which Tremblay and Dolan rely on a classic depiction of motherhood originating from normative political and social discourses, to eventually focus on transgression as a way to reconstruct women's identities. Through a process of unmothering, female characters are stripped of their expected reproductive functions to let them express their own sensibilities, preferences, and desires. While there are striking resemblances, the particularities of each author need to be underlined, insofar as Dolan arguably pushes the boundaries of transgression further than his literary forefather. Beyond reflections on motherhood, broader and crucial questions of transgression and representation emerge: representation of the gay community, sexuality, masculinity and femininity. Three chapters constitute this work: Chapter 1, Mothers, Sons, and Norms; Chapter 2, Strategies of Unmothering and Queer Kinships; and Chapter 3, Queer lives.

When Gertrude Coppard, a refined young woman, meets Walter Morel, a rough coalminer, at a Christmas party dance, they feel immediately drawn to each other. After a short romance defined by physical attraction, the couple decide to marry. However, Gertrude soon realizes the financial difficulties of trying to survive off of Walter’s measly salary. These troubles quickly cause the two to fight and grow apart. Walter begins to drink the little money they have away, retreating to a bar every night. Once he becomes abusive, Gertrude becomes dedicated to ensuring that her children do not turn out like their father, and decides to reinvest her love into her two sons, William and Paul. Her oldest, William, is her favorite, and her love is reciprocated; William is only willing to be separated from her when he begins a new job in London, rising from his poor social class. When Paul, Gertrude’s youngest, suffers from pneumonia, she realizes how much she cares for him as well. Unlike William, Paul feels smothered by his mother’s attention, growing complex emotions about her. Both drawn to and disgusted by Gertrude, Paul decides to venture out and find love. When Paul meets Miriam, a smart and kind farmer’s daughter, he feels that they are a great match. Gertrude, however, does not approve. Haunted by this and feeling unsatisfied, Paul leaves Miriam for Clara, a feminist divorcée. Still, Paul is worried about his mother. He realizes that he is the sole cause of her happiness; without his attention, Gertrude has nothing. Conflicted, Paul becomes torn between chasing his own happiness or appeasing his mother. Sons and Lovers by D.H Lawrence is a sensational portrayal of a generational clash and the differing types of abusive relationships. In 1999, the Modern Library ranked Sons and Lovers as ninth on a list of the top one-hundred best novels from the 20th century. Since then, the narrative has also inspired several film adaptations. With strong, sentimental, and scandalous prose, D.H Lawrence creates a narrative that is not soon to be forgotten. This edition of Sons and Lovers by D.H Lawrence features an eye-catching cover design and is printed in a font that is both modern and readable, crafting a reading experience for contemporary audiences that is filled with enjoyment and ease.

Sons and Lovers, although not a novel of social criticism, entertains two social problems: the effects of industrialism on human beings and the modern role and rights of women. Two major images, the mine and the woman, appear both as liberating and constrictive forces; in the case of woman, the force binds but is also bound. This book presents the best of modern commentary on a great work of literature. Analyzing themes, style, genre, structural elements, artistic influences, and historical background, the essays define the place of the work in its tradition and make clear its significance for readers of today.--Adapted from book jacket.

Part IThe refined daughter of a "good old burgher family," Gertrude Coppard meets a rough-hewn miner, Walter Morel, at a Christmas dance and falls into a whirlwind romance characterised by physical passion. But soon after her marriage to Walter, she realises the difficulties of living off his meagre 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. William dies and Mrs. Morel is heartbroken. When her second son Paul catches pneumonia she rediscovers her love for Paul.Part IIBoth 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 farmer's daughter who attends his church. The two take long walks and have intellectual conversations about books but Paul resists, in part because his mother disapproves. At Miriam's family's farm, Paul meets Clara Dawes, a young woman with, apparently, feminist sympathies who has separated from her husband, Baxter.After pressuring Miriam into a physical relationship, which he finds unsatisfying, Paul breaks with her as he grows more intimate with Clara, who is more passionate physically. But even she cannot hold him and he returns to his mother. When his mother dies soon after, he is alone.

In this study of D.H.Lawrence and critical theory, Robert Burden pays particular attention to the critical formations that underpin the reception history of the main novels, including the much maligned “leadership” novels, because strong readings have always contested the meaning and significance of Lawrence, and because there has been a persistent reluctance to approach his writing through post-structuralist theory. This study demonstrates in some detail that once Lawrence's texts are the objects of the newer critical paradigms, their principles of coherence are understood differently; and that older notions of textual unity are displaced by aesthetic structures of degrees of generic and linguistic destabilization. This enables a radicalizing of Lawrence's fiction by drawing out its deconstructive effects on his myth-making and essentialist notions of the self. The sexual identities represented in the fiction are read as experiments, or “thought adventures”, as Lawrence himself characterized his work. The different approaches to Lawrence's writing in this study lead to a radical reassessment of his relationship to Modernism, especially in the light of the more elastic concept of Modernism in recent discussion, and one which traditional Lawrence scholars have ignored. What emerges is a more self-deconstructive Lawrence, with some surprising results.

Sons and Lovers is a 1913 novel by the English writer D. H. Lawrence, originally published by B.W. Huebsch Publishers. The Modern Library placed it ninth on their list of the 100 best novels of the 20th century. While the novel initially received 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 third published novel of D. H. Lawrence, taken by many to be his earliest masterpiece, tells the story of Paul Morel, a young man and budding artist.The original 1913 edition was heavily edited by Edward Garnett who removed 80 passages, roughly a tenth of the text.[citation needed] The novel is dedicated to Garnett. Garnett, as the literary advisor to the publishing firm Duckworth, was an important figure in leading Lawrence further into the London literary world during the years 1911 and 1912.[citation needed] It was not until the 1992 Cambridge University Press edition was released that the missing text was restored.Lawrence began working on the novel in the period of his mother''s illness, and often expresses this sense of his mother''s wasted life through his female protagonist Gertrude Morel. Letters written around the time of its development clearly demonstrate the admiration he felt for his mother - viewing her as a ''clever, ironical, delicately moulded woman'' - and her apparently unfortunate marriage to his coal-miner father, a man of ''sanguine temperament'' and instability. He believed that his mother had married below her class status. Lydia Lawrence wasn''t born into the middle-class.[clarification needed] This personal family conflict experienced by Lawrence provided him with the impetus for the first half of his novel - in which both William, the older brother, and Paul Morel become increasingly contemptuous of their father - and the subsequent exploration of Paul Morel''s antagonising relationships with both his lovers, which are both incessantly affected by his allegiance to his mother.The first draft of Lawrence''s novel is now lost and was never completed, which seems to be directly due to his mother''s illness. He did not return to the novel for three months, at which point it was titled ''Paul Morel''. The penultimate draft of the novel coincided with a remarkable change in Lawrence''s life, as his health was thrown into turmoil and he resigned his teaching job to spend time in Germany. This plan was never followed, however, as he met and married the German minor aristocrat, Frieda Weekley, who was the wife of a former professor of his at the University of Nottingham. According to Frieda''s account of their first meeting, she and Lawrence talked about Oedipus and the effects of early childhood on later life within twenty minutes of meeting.The third draft of ''Paul Morel'' was sent to the publishing house Heinemann; the response, a rather violent reaction, came from William Heinemann himself. His reaction captures the shock and newness of Lawrence''s novel, ''the degradation of the mother [as explored in this novel], supposed to be of gentler birth, is almost inconceivable''; he encouraged Lawrence to redraft the novel one more time. In addition to altering the title to a more thematic ''Sons and Lovers'', Heinemann''s response had reinvigorated Lawrence into vehemently defending his novel and its themes as a coherent work of art. To justify its form, Lawrence explains, in letters to Garnett, that it is a ''great tragedy'' and a ''great book'', one that mirrors the ''tragedy of thousands of young men in England''....David Herbert Richards "D. H." Lawrence (11 September 1885 - 2 March 1930) was an English novelist, poet, playwright, essayist, literary critic and painter. His collected works represent, among other things, an extended reflection upon the dehumanising effects of modernity and industrialisation. Some of the issues Lawrence explores are emotional health, vitality, spontaneity and instinct.

Though D. H. Lawrence's third published novel, Sons and Lovers (1913) is largely autobiographical. The novel, which began as "Paul Morel," was sparked by the death of Lawrence's mother, Lydia. Lawrence reexamined his childhood, his relationship with his mother, and her psychological effect on his sexuality.The roots of Sons and Lovers are clearly located in Lawrence's life. His childhood coal-mining town of Eastwood was changed, with a sardonic twist, to Bestwood. Walter Morel was modeled on Lawrence's hard-drinking, irresponsible collier father, Arthur. Lydia became Gertrude Morel, the intellectually stifled, unhappy mother who lives through her sons. The death by erysipelas of one of Lawrence's elder brothers, Ernest, and Lydia's grief and eventual obsession with Lawrence, seems hardly changed in the novel. (Both Ernest and his fictional counterpart, William, were engaged to London stenographers named Louisa "Gipsy" Denys.)Filling out the cast of important characters was Jessie Chambers, a neighbor with whom Lawrence developed an intense friendship, and who would become Miriam Leiver in the novel. His mother and family disapproved of their relationship, which always seemed on the brink of romance. Nevertheless, Chambers was Lawrence's greatest literary supporter in his early years, and he frequently showed her drafts of what he was working on, including Sons and Lovers (she disliked her depiction, and it led to the dissolution of their relationship). Lawrence's future wife, Frieda von Richtofen Weekly, partially inspired the portrait of Clara Dawes, the older, sensual woman with whom Paul has an affair. To be fair, Lawrence met Frieda only in 1912 at Nottingham University College, and he started "Paul Morel" in 1910.Considered Lawrence's first masterpiece, most critics of the day praised Sons and Lovers for its authentic treatment of industrial life and sexuality. There is evidence that Lawrence was aware of Sigmund Freud's early theories on sexuality, and Sons and Lovers deeply explores and revises of one of Freud's major theories, the Oedipus complex. (Lawrence would go on to write more works on psychoanalysis in the 1920s.) Still, the book received some criticism from those who felt the author had gone too far in his description of Paul's confused sexuality. Compared to his later works, however, such as The Rainbow, Women in Love, and Lady Chatterley's Lover, Sons and Lovers seems quite modest.

Whether he’s conscious of it or not, a man’s mother is the model for just about every relationship with a woman he has for the rest of his life. Sometimes it’s obvious (just ask his wife or girlfriend), sometimes it’s more subtle, but when you see it, it becomes crystal clear. For fifteen years, this book has helped men understand their mothers’ pervasive influence over the way they relate to women—both the positive and negative aspects of it. But more than that, it has helped thousands of men break free of old relationship patterns. Gurian gives men a wealth of practical exercises and meditations they can use to recognize their mothers’ influence in relationships, and to establish a healthy and rewarding new basis for relationships that will benefit themselves and the women in their lives as well. This new edition of the book formerly titled Mothers, Sons, and Lovers includes a new preface and study questions by the author.
