A woman married to an invalid seeks refuge from her sexless and dreary existence in the arms of the passionate game-keeper, but can she break out against the restrictions of society and succumb to her desire for him? From the author of SONS AND LOVERS, THE RAINBOW and WOMEN IN LOVE.
Perhaps the most famous of Lawrence's novels, the 1928 Lady Chatterley's Lover is no longer distinguished for the once-shockingly explicit treatment of its subject matter--the adulterous affair between a sexually unfulfilled upper-class married woman and the game keeper who works for the estate owned by her wheelchaired husband. Now that we're used to reading about sex, and seeing it in the movies, it's apparent that the novel is memorable for better reasons: namely, that Lawrence was a masterful and lyrical writer, whose story takes us bodily into the world of its characters.
