Product Description

Product Description

One of the most extraordinary literary works of the twentieth century, Lady Chatterley's Lover was banned in England and the United States after its initial publication in 1928. The unexpurgated edition did not appear in America until 1959, after one of the most spectacular legal battles in publishing history.

"Of the many exquisite books written by D.H.Lawrence, the book which has gained the most popularity has been Lady Chatterley's Lover. Most famous because of its obscenity trial during the 1960's, Lady Chatterley's Lover is far from a "dirty book." Rather, through his usage of local vernacular and an in depth look at the true relationship between two humans, Lawrence has successfully portrayed sex as sacred in a world where sex is viewed as nothing more than physical pleasure. This novel is a masterful example of a writer going back to everyone's common roots and emerging with a thought provoking masterpiece designed to affect a change within its readers." online-literature

“A woman has to live her life, or live to repent not having lived it.” D.H. Lawrence, Lady Chatterley's Lover

"As far as vocabulary, Lady Chatterley's Lover is more explicit than Fifty Shades." Chiara Atik

"Fifty Shades of Grey? It wouldn'€™t make Lady Chatterley blush" Barbara Taylor Bradford

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 25 Dec 2012
In my opinion still the sexiest book ever written especially as at the time of writing it was so shocking and scandalous, a fantastic read I love it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed 25 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase
When written this must have been quite a shocking story, although probably not far the truth. However some of the language was over the top and the story itself to me was weak. Was glad when I finished it.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Great English Style Flawed by Smut 14 Aug 2013
I decided to read some of Lawrence's novels, having found that an American publishing house put 'Sons and Lovers' among the ten best novels of the 20th century. I was delighted with his English style, having just turned to it from a translation of some of Alexandre Dumas's novels which were set in France at the time of Catherine De Medici. Lawrence's style of writing was fresh and modern. I have read 'Sons and Lovers', and 'Lady Chatterley's Lover' and 'the Rainbow' and they are all social history as well as stories. They are set in Lawrence's home area around Nottingham and Derby and give vivid pictures of the social background of coal mining, though the life of the socially advantaged and of farming also come to the fore. In an earlier day when it was published, 'Lady Chatterley's Lover' caused great comment' as being a corrupting influence. I can see how that view is/was held and in 'the Rainbow' Lawrence's crude language about physical relationships is hard to stomach. I think it is corrupting and unnecessarily crude, though, I'm sure, some will say it is the natural language of the characters. I think some of our earlier novelists and indeed modern ones could have written the same stories with greater sensitivity and less 'dirt' There is much that is good in his writing but because of this last aspect I find that I can only give three stars. And I am not a prude!
