- LADY CHATTERLEY'S LOVER
DetailsWhat happens when a cultured bohemian feels stifled in a sexless marriage to her invalid husband? She takes on a lover . . . Constance Chatterley, the wife of Sir Clifford Chatterley, finds herself trapped in a loveless and lifeless marriage. When her husband urges her to have a liaison with someone from their own class, Constance gets attracted to a man from the working class instead-an Oliver Mellors who is her husbands gamekeeper-and takes him as her lover. In a society that reveres class difference, will an aristocrat woman be allowed her torrid love affair with a lowly man? A novel notorious for being pornographic and way ahead of its time, Lady Chatterleys Lover brewed up quite a controversy when it was first published in 1928. It was only decades later, in 1960, that its unexpurgated edition could be openly published in the UK. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: David Herbert Lawrence was the fourth child of Arthur John Lawrence, a barely literate miner, and Lydia, a former pupil teacher from a humble background. Lawrence spent his formative years in the coal mining town of Eastwood, Nottinghamshire. His working-class background and the tensions between his parents provided the raw material for a number of his early works. Lady Chatterleys Lover was his last major novel, and reinforced his unsavoury reputation. It was initially published in private editions in Florence and Paris.
