This book is a stylistic study of D. H. Lawrence's presentation of narrative
viewpoint. The focus is mainly on Lawrence's third novel, Sons and
Lovers, occupying a crucial position in his oeuvre and judged by critics to be
his first mature piece.While sharing many features typical of
nineteenth-century novels, it marks the emergence of a new technique of
writing consciousness that functioned as a precursor to the modernist practice
of dialogic shifts across viewpoints. Through a detailed linguistic analysis,
Sotirova shows that different characters' viewpoints are not simply
juxtaposed in the narrative, but linked in a way that creates dialogic
resonances between them. The dialogic linking is achieved through the use of
devices that have parallel functions in conversational discourse - referring
expressions, sentence-initial correctives and repetition. The book uses
stylistics to resolve current controversies in narratology and Lawrence
criticism. In approaching the study of narrative viewpoint from the angle of
discourse, Sotirova arrives at cutting-edge insights into Lawrence's work.
This book will be required reading for stylisticians, narratologists, literary
linguists and literary studies scholars.

"In this valuable study of Lawrence's use of free indirect style in Sons and
Lovers (1913), Sotirova (Univ. of Nottingham, UK) brings the insights of
linguistics to literary criticism, aiming to augment the critical commonplace
that Lawrence is a dialogic writer... Sotirova offers a compelling theory of
free indirect style and sensitive readings of Sons and Lovers... Summing Up:
Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty."
