Discuss how Lawrence expresses difficult family and love relationships in sons and lovers
Sons and Lovers is split into two parts. The first part focuses on Mrs Morel ‘s relationship with both her husband and her first born son, William. Mrs Morel despises her life as a miner’s wife and she despises her husband for being a violent drunkard. The relationship between her and her husband was only a happy one for the first few months of their marriage.
Mrs. Morel quickly grew to hate her Husband for his actions while drunk. He was a violent man and sometimes took out his anger physically on his wife. Because of this, Mrs. Morel lavishes all of her love and attention to her son William instead of her husband. She expects also that William lives only for his mother too.
This is the first indication that something is amiss in the balance of love between mother and son.
William becomes engaged to a woman called Gipsy from London. Mrs. Morel is against the idea that William would marry her. She does not say it, but it is clear that she sees Gipsy as a threat to her relationship with William. She does not want another woman to share her pride and joy (William) with.
This is clear because Gipsy is not the first girl who Mrs. Morel was against. During William’s youth, his mother would always complain about the women who would call to the house for him. Mrs. Morel replaced all of her affection for her husband by her love for William.
She cannot bear to see him leave her for another woman.
When William falls ill and dies, Mrs. Morel is heartbroken. Her greatest love has passed away. This was a very difficult time for Mrs. Morel and also for the rest of the family. When Paul falls dangerously ill, Mrs. Morel realizes that she must focus her love which she had for William onto her second born son, Paul.
