Lady Chatterley's Lover, Paperback / softback Book

Lady Chatterley's Lover Paperback / softback

Description

Subject of an infamous obscenity trial, Lady Chatterley's Lover is now regarded as one of the pivotal novels of the twentieth century. Clifford Chatterley returns from the First World War as an invalid.

Constance nurses him and tries to be the dutiful wife.

However, childless and listless she feels oppressed by their marriage and their isolated life.

Partly encouraged by Clifford to seek a lover, she embarks on a passionate affair with the gamekeeper, Mellors.

Through their liaison Lawrence explores the complications of sex, love and class.

Written in 1928 and subsequently banned, Lady Chatterley's Lover is one of the most subversive novels in English Literature. WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY BLAKE MORRISON
