Overview

Lady Chatterley's Lover is a novel by D. H. Lawrence written in 1928.
Printed privately in Florence in 1928, it was not printed in the United Kingdom until 1960 (other than in an underground edition issued by Inky Stephensen's Mandrake Press in 1929). Lawrence considered calling this book Tenderness at one time and made significant alterations to the original manuscript in order to make it palatable to readers. It has been published in three different versions.
The publication of the book caused a scandal due to its explicit sex scenes, including previously banned four-letter words, and perhaps because the lovers were a working-class male and an aristocratic female.
The story is said to have originated from events in Lawrence's own unhappy domestic life, and he took inspiration for the settings of the book from Ilkeston in Derbyshire where he lived for a while. According to some critics the fling of Lady Ottoline Morrell with "Tiger", a young stonemason who came to carve plinths for her garden statues, also influenced the story.

Meet the Author

David Herbert Lawrence (11 September 1885 - 2 March 1930) was an
important and controversial English writer of the 20th century,
whose prolific and diverse output included novels, short stories,
poems, plays, essays, travel books, paintings, translations,
literary criticism and personal letters. His collected works
represent an extended reflection upon the dehumanizing effects of
modernity and industrialisation. In them, Lawrence confronts issues
relating to emotional health and vitality, spontaneity, sexuality,
and instinctive behaviour. Lawrence's unsettling opinions earned
him many enemies and he endured hardships, official persecution,
censorship and misrepresentation of his creative work throughout
the second half of his life, much of which he spent in a voluntary
exile he called his "savage pilgrimage." At the time of his death,
his public reputation was that of a pornographer who had wasted his
considerable talents. E. M. Forster, in an obituary notice,
challenged this widely held view, describing him as "the greatest
imaginative novelist of our generation." Later, the influential
Cambridge critic F. R. Leavis championed both his artistic
integrity and his moral seriousness, placing much of Lawrence's
fiction within the canonical "great tradition" of the English
novel. He is now generally valued as a visionary thinker and a
significant representative of modernism in English literature,
although some feminists object to the attitudes toward women and
sexuality found in his works.
