1913 ‘Sons and Lovers’ D. H. Lawrence – Esteemed Classic Novel – Decent 2003 Movie

I was looking through the classic audio books that were offered on the music service Spotify.   I saw ‘Sons and Lovers’ by D. H. Lawrence and remembered that the 1913 semi-autobiographical novel was considered one of the best of the 20th century and in the top 100 list.  So, I gave the first chapter a listen.  The audio rendition of the 1913 novel was well done and I liked the voice of the person reading the professionally produced reading.  So, I looked up the work and found the Project Gutenberg text – http://www.gutenberg.org/files/217/217-h/217-h.htm and also a free Libravox version – https://librivox.org/sons-and-lovers-version-2-by-d-h-lawrence/ for anyone who doesn’t have Spotify, or myself if I’m on a different device and want access to the story.  I do hunger for stories. 

I saw that there were a number of movie and television series made based on the work. I look it up on Youtube and found a very good version from the UK’s ITV in 2003.  Three hours long in two parts, but a real chance to see what the England looked like for some people circa 1910.  The movie also has a chance to show how people dressed, and what the insides of the houses of lower class people looked like.  A visual chance to look at a long gone time.
