Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
"Lady Chatterley's Lover" was the subject of one of the most infamous trials of the 20th Century when Penguin were prosecuted under the Obscene Publications Act. However, with expert witnesses for the defence including E.M. Forster, Penguin were acquitted and permitted to publish in 1960. The book became a best-seller largely on account of its explicit scenes of a sexual nature and use of four letter words. However, re-reading again over forty years later, one realises that although the sex scenes are still graphic even today, the book is about much more than sex. It covers love, class, disability, family relationships, infertility, politics and is read by acclaimed actress Emilia Fox, star of "Silent Witness".
Amazon.com Review
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.
