This Wordsworth Edition includes an exclusive Introduction and Notes by Dr Howard J. Booth, University of Kent at Canterbury. ‘When you have experienced Sons and Lovers you have lived through the agonies of the young Lawrence striving to win free from his old life’.

Just couldn't get into it. I'm sure it's great and all- it just didn't fit my mood. Maybe I'll try again another time.
