During D.H. Lawrence's lifetime and even afterwards he was a controversial figure. Lawrence was one of the greatest English novelists of the 20th century, and was one of the first novelists to introduce themes of psychology into his works. There can be no argument that D.H. Lawrence's Sons and Lovers was a study of human relationships through psychology. Sons and Lovers, by D.H. Lawrence, published 1913, a closely autobiographical novel set in the Nottingham shire coal-mining village of Bestwood. Walter Morel has married a sensitive and high-minded woman better educated than him. She began to shrink from his lack of fine feeling and drunkenness; embittered, she turned their marriage into a battle. Morel, baffled and thwarted, was sometimes violent, while Mrs. Morel rejected him and turned all her love towards her four children, particularly her two eldest sons, William and Paul. She struggled with the poverty and meanness of her surroundings to keep herself and her family "respectable" and was determined that her boys would not become miners. William went to London to work as a clerk, and Paul also got a job as clerk with Mr. Jordon, manufacturer of surgical appliances; William developed pneumonia and died. Mrs. Morel, numbed by despair, was roused only when Paul also fell ill. She nursed him back to health, and subsequently their attachment deepened. Paul's friendly with the Leivers family of Willey Farm, and a tenderness grew between him and the daughter Miriam, a soulful, shy girl. They read poetry together, and Paul instructed her in French and even algebra and show her his sketches.
