Lady Chatterley's Lover

By D. H. Lawrence (Author)


Format Paperback


Inspired by the long-standing affair between D. H. Lawrence’s German wife and an Italian peasant, Lady Chatterley’s Lover follows the intense passions of Constance Chatterley. Trapped in an unhappy marriage to an aristocrat whose war wounds have left him paralyzed and impotent, Constance enters into a liaison with the gamekeeper Mellors.

Originally banned in multiple countries, Lady Chatterley’s Lover is an unapologetic portrayal of pleasure recognized as Lawrence’s “best novel” (Anais Nin) and “one of the most important works of fiction of the century” (Archibald MacLeish).

David Herbert Richards Lawrence (18851930) was an English writer of the 20th century whose prolific and diverse output included novels, short stories, poems, plays, essays, travel books, paintings, translations, literary criticism, and personal letters. His collected works represent an extended reflection upon the dehumanizing effects of modernity and industrialization. In them, Lawrence confronts issues relating to emotional health and vitality, spontaneity, human sexuality, and instinct.
