I'm glad I came back to it
on 9 February 2015
I first read the expurgated version of this book 50 years ago for the sex content. We school girls passed it around furtively finding the juicy bits.
Without internet,sex education and victorian values still prevalent on tv the book was shocking and frank and no doubt contributed towards the 60's sexual revolution. It still is revolutionary even though it was written almost 80 years ago. A true artist, genius, this fiction reflects D H Lawrence's own life, views and battles with society which are just as relevant today. I'm glad I came back to it.
