Sons and Lovers not only makes the fame for D. H. Lawrence himself, but also is a highly biographical novel. Many scholars attempt to interpret it from the Freudian psychoanalytical perspective and regard the novel as the portrayal of Oedipus love between mother and son. Yet, that does not speak the essence for the novel and Lawrence’s real intent in artistic creation. This paper will explore the theme of Sons and Lovers from D.H. Lawrence own view on life, that is, the pursuit of the true life and the integrated self. The significance of penetrating deep into the true-life-pursuit theme of the novel lies in the fact that the life diversity could be revived to enlighten people’s lives who have been frustrated in their mechanized complexes.
