Women's Role with Respect to Conflict in Marriage in the Novels of DH Lawrence

Authors(1) :-Hemraj

Lawrence's father was a miner in the local colliery, and his marriage to Lydia was not a successful one. His mother was a school teacher and belongs to a well-to-do family. This class conflicts are played out in Lawrence’s work. His work originates from the conflict between his parents which shattered the domestic life of the family. His mother insisted on children being educated to an extent which exceeded the father’s wishes. The same situation is portrayed in Sons and Lovers.Somehow Lawrence is optimistic about marriage. He hardly attacks the institution. Lawrence is a social reformer, still striving to free the people from the established institutions. He sees marriage as an institution which fulfills the aspirations of men and women, but never as an ultimate goal
