Lady Chatterley's Lover

Authors: Lawrence, D. H.

Publisher: HarperPerennial Classics

ISBN: 9781443425230

Classification: Non-Fiction

Synopsis:

Emotionally and physically isolated from her disabled husband, Lady Constance Chatterley enters into an affair with the couple’s gamekeeper, Oliver Mellors. While she finds physical fulfillment and love with Mellors, Constance is nevertheless forced to confront the differences between the upper and lower classes as she chooses between a future in reduced circumstances with Mellors and a life of comfort with her distant husband.

Lady Chatterley’s Lover explores themes of class difference, social conflict, and intellectual versus physical stimulation. Its explicit sexual content and use of then-unprintable words made the novel the subject of a 1960 British obscenity trial, the non-guilty verdict of which resulted in greater freedom for publishing explicit content. Lady Chatterley’s Lover has been adapted for radio, film, theatre and television.
