Lady Chatterley's Lover, Paperback

Lady Chatterley's Lover Paperback

Part of the Penguin Essentials series


'Connie was aware, however, of a growing restlessness...It thrilled inside her body, in her womb, somewhere, till she felt she must jump into water and swim to get away from it; a mad restlessness.

It made her heart beat violently for no reason'. Lady Constance Chatterley is trapped in a loveless marriage to a man who is impotent.

Oppressed by her dreary life, she is drawn to Mellors the gamekeeper.

Breaking out against the constraints of society she yields to her instinctive desire for him and discovers the transforming power of physical love which leads them both towards fulfillment.

Banned for many years for its frank depiction of sex, "Lady Chatterley's Lover" was first published by Penguin in 1960 and was at the centre of a sensational obscenity trial at the Old Bailey.

D. H. Lawrence himself called it 'the most improper novel in the world'.
