The last and most famous of D. H. Lawrence’s novels, Lady Chatterley’s Lover was published in 1928 and banned in England and the United States as pornographic. While sexually tame by today’s standards, the book is memorable for better reasons—Lawrence’s masterful and lyrical prose and a vibrant story that takes us bodily into the world of its characters.

As the novel opens, Constance Chatterley finds herself trapped in an unfulfilling marriage to a rich aristocrat whose war wounds have left him paralyzed and impotent. After a brief but unsatisfying affair with a playwright, Lady Chatterley enjoys an extremely passionate relationship with the gamekeeper on the family estate, Oliver Mellors. As Lady Chatterley falls in love and conceives a child with Mellors, she moves from the heartless, bloodless world of the intelligentsia and aristocracy into a vital and profound connection rooted in sexual fulfillment.

Through this novel, Lawrence attempted to revive in the human consciousness an awareness of savage sensuality, a sensuality with the power to free men and women from the enslaving sterility of modern technology and intellectualism. Perhaps even more relevant today than when it first appeared, Lady Chatterley’s Lover is a triumph of passion and an erotic celebration of life.

    " THis is a classic, and I really enjoyed it. IT highlights the class differences in England in the early 1900's, or mid. I love how the female protagonist goes outside of her circle and follows her heart. It also deals a lot with the issues surrounding taking a stand and leaving your circle. "

    " I'm still reading Lady Chatterly's Lover. I was interested in it because it was so controversial. Now that I'm reading it, I can see just why it was so controversial, and I'm not sure if I truly want to continue with it. At least now I know what all the fuss was about. Well written and a keen insight into various views and opinions of love versus sex versus territory. It really is rather thought-provoking . . . actually, the more I write about it, the more I think I really will continue to read it. 'Tis all. "

    " What do women want from a man ? Read this book to find out. "

    " It is no longer a taboo to talk about sex I think. And the pursuit of a wonderful sex life is totally justified. Though it leaves behind the issue of marriage being a bondage by God. "
