Lady Chatterley's Lover (Popular Penguin)

Author(s): D. H. Lawrence

Fiction

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.

Product Information

D.H. Lawrence was born in 1885 in Nottingham, into a miner's family. He trained as a teacher, but had his first book, THE WHITE PEACOCK, published in 1908 after the death of his beloved mother. Illness forced him to give up teaching, and he travelled round Europe with his German wife Frieda. He died in France in 1930, but was amazingly prolific. His novels include SONS AND LOVERS, THE RAINBOW, and WOMEN IN LOVE, and many more short stories, poems, plays, and essays.
