  • "A crippled aristocrat's wife has an affair with the gameskeeper."@en
  • "A seductive and beautiful love story about an aristocrat, Sir Clifford Chatterley, who has come home from the war paralyzed from the waist down. His wife devotes herself to his care, but her husbands bitter arrogance soon makes her life a nightmare. Selfishly he suggests that she produce an heir. He never dreams that she will break all the rules and forgetting her social class, take their gamekeeper as her lover."@en

  • "Banned in 1928, and when it was published here in 1960, this frank depiction of a young woman's sensual awakening was at the centre of a sensational obscenity trial in 1963. Constance Chatterley is deeply unhappy; married to an invalid, she is almost as inwardly paralysed as her husband. Oppressed by her dreary life, she finds refuge and regeneration in the arms of Mellors the game-keeper."
  • "Lady Chatterley's Lover was inspired by the long-standing affair between Frieda, Lawrence's aristocratic German wife, and an Italian peasant who eventually became her third husband; Lawrence's struggle with sexual impotence; and the circumstances of his and Frieda's courtship and the early years of their marriage. Constance Chatterley, married to an aristocrat and mine owner whose war wounds have left him paralyzed and impotent, has an affair with Mellors, a gamekeeper, becomes pregnant, and considers abandoning her husband. One of the seminal class novels of the century, it was considered flagrantly pornographic when first published in 1928. The book also exists in two other, completely different versions: The First Lady Chatterley and John Thomas and Lady Jane. Lawrence considered Lady Chatterley's Lover to be definitive, and the one least likely to be prosecuted, and although its early banning proved him wrong, a famous obscenity trial some three decades after his death in 1930 finally cleared it for wider dissemination."@en
  • "One of the major works of fiction written during the twentieth century, D. H. Lawrence's last novel is an erotic celebration of life. Described by the New York TimesLawrence's classic tale of love and discovery pits the paralyzed and callous Clifford Chatterley against two major characters: Constance, his wife--a lonely, indecisive woman trapped in a sterile marriage--and her persuasive lover, Oliver Mellors, the robust and blunt-spoken gamekeeper of her husband's estate. The lyrical tale of their passionate, adulterous love affair has transported generations of readers into a world filled with natural beauty and seething with human emotion. A masterfully written opus, this extraordinary love story is essential reading for any study of twentieth-century literature."@en

Frank Kermode calls the book Lawrence's "great achievement" and Anaïs Nin describes it as "artistically ... his best novel.""

Love and personal relationships are the threads that bind this novel together. Lawrence explores a wide range of different types of relationships. The reader sees the brutal, bullying relationship between Mellors and his wife Bertha, who punishes him by preventing his pleasure.

As the novel opens, Constance Chatterley finds herself trapped in an unfulfilling marriage to a rich aristocrat whose war wounds have left him paralyzed and impotent. After a brief but unsatisfying affair with a playwright, Lady Chatterley enjoys an extremely passionate relationship with the gamekeeper on the family estate, Oliver Mellors. As Lady Chatterley falls in love and conceives a child with Mellors, she moves from the heartless, bloodless world of the intelligentsia and aristocracy into a vital and profound connection rooted in sexual fulfillment. Through this novel, Lawrence attempted to revive in the human consciousness an awareness of savage sensuality, a sensuality with the power to free men and women from the enslaving sterility of modern technology and intellectualism. Perhaps even more relevant today than when it first appeared, Lady Chatterley's Lover is a triumph of passion and an erotic celebration of life. <P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt>Susan Ostrov Weisser is a professor in the English Department at Adelphi University, where she specializes in nineteenth-century literature and women's studies, and teaches frequently in the Honors College."

Time passes monotonously, but she then meets Mellors, a man whose earthy, sensual qualities are in sharp contrast to everything she had ever encountered. Together they face a new world, in which the accepted boundaries of class and secuality were being challenged."
