Lady Chatterley's Lover: AND A Propos of "Lady Chatterley's Lover"

Author(s): D. H. Lawrence; Doris Lessing (Introduction by); Michael Squires (Notes by, Editor); Paul Poplawski (Editor)


Constance Chatterley is not content. Trapped in a humdrum marriage to an impotent man, she becomes drawn to the earthy gamekeeper Oliver Mellors. They embark on a sexually-charged affair that allows them a sense of enlightenment and physical fulfilment. In Lady Chatterley's Lover, D.H. Lawrence masterfully explores themes of class, love, sexuality and the conflict between the physical and the mental. Its famously improper content led to an obscenity trial that placed the role of censorship into the spotlight and challenged the boundaries of acceptability in literature.
