This is the story of Constance Chatterley, a lovely young woman whose parts are all in good working order. Not so her husband, Clifford. He wears repression like armor.
So when Constance is thrown into contact with Oliver Mellors, her husband's gamekeeper, the results are explosive. He restores her sexuality and with it her zest in life and living.
When the book was published in 1928, it caused a sensation. Lawrence wrote of physical love with a lack of inhibition that startled his readers, but his scenes evoked lyrical tenderness and joy. They still do. This edition, banned in the United States until 1959, was the first complete and unexpurgated text of Lawrence's finest and most famous novel.
"The most tender, poignant and liberated love story of all time." (B-O-T Editorial Review Board)
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.
