This is a story of adultery. A love affair across the class divide. The wife of an aristocrat falls for a man on the lower rungs of society - a lowly gamekeeper. Why?. Lady Constance Chatterley finds her relationship with her husband, Lord Clifford Chatterley, both physically and emotionally bankrupt. Clifford is paralyzed from the waist down due to a war injury and his mental state is one of cold indifference and intellectual snobbery. Constance is neglected to the point of frustration but also pushed into producing the son necessary to carry on 'the family name'. Any aristocrat will do but; on meeting the very masculine, non intellectual, Oliver Mellors it's just a case of 'when' and not 'if'.
Constance is empowered, awakened, and goes on to realise, through her affair with Oliver, that to find happiness she needs to be in a relationship that's complete; mind and body, and that's something her husband is unwilling and unable to give.
At first the pregnancy is met by a mix of gossip and joy. The Chatterley name will continue. Only when the true identity of the father is revealed to be a member of the working classes does the world implode and Lady Chatterley is cast away to find her true love finally free from all she has grown to loathe.Read more ›
