The novels of D.H.Lawrence characteristically examine changing human relationships. How is Marriage viewed and developed through these changing relationships?.
Lawrence came from a working class family. His novels are poignant to the Nineteenth Century because of his background, giving a greater sense of realism to his work. In this examination I am particularly interested in Sons and Lovers, The Rainbow and Women in Love. These novels examine Changing Human relationships at a deep level, making them works of interest in accordance to my study. Lawrence based his work on wholeness which is the unity of being and experience. I particularly want to examine how Marriage is viewed and developed though the changing relationships in the characters in three of his novels. In the time of Lawrence the world was male dominated. The husband was the breadwinner and the wife stayed at home, if she did work it was done in the home as well as the upkeep of the house. It is interesting to see if these attitudes change in the three novels.
He gives an astute insight into the workings of female mind through his characters example. At the same time he is contradictory when writing about the relationships between his male and female characters. Give example.
Sons and Lovers is Lawrence's first novel to be examined, which demonstrates Lawrence's maturity as a writer. The novel is an autobiographical work, with the complex workings of the Morel family being examined in close relation to Lawrence's own family unit. As Lawrence was writing on first hand experience it is easy to see how the behaviour of the characters is motivated by the response to the environment.
