Fahim Cheffat Salman, Sazul Yana Sanif.


Sons and Lovers, a great literary work by the British writer D.H. Lawrence has lent to Freudian criticism. The very famous of Oedipus complex by Sigmund Freud with hint to the play “Oedipus the King” demonstrates how the son wishes for his mother’s marriage and his father’s death. In this paper, it is informed how the connotation of Oedipus Rex inverted in the character of Paul Morel. Actually the study has slanted towards the influence of Paul’s mother on his personality and his relationships with other women with the concentration on his behavior, wishes, and his inability in taking decision in life. The paper portraits the inability of the character because of his mother’s domination and the natural elements such as inheritance and environment. It will expose how woefully characters in “Sons and Lovers” are the prey of the conditions over which they don’t have the ability to control.

Key words: Paul Morel, Mariam & Clara, Oedipus complex, and Freudian analysis
