Abstract:

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

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