Overview

The publication of this book caused a scandal due to its explicit sex scenes, including previously banned four-letter words, and perhaps particularly 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. -- E

Classic D.H. Lawrence. Lady Chatterly finds herself married to a soldier. When he returns from the war, he is paralized from the waist down. Her free spirit allows her to seek love and sex elsewhere until she winds up pregnant and will have to make a life changing decision. The book is a little slow to start, but leaves the reader wanting more at the end.

The movie doesn't do this book justice. D. H. Lawrence had so much more to say about the complex relationships between men and women. As a female reader I appreciated the author's development of Lady Chatterly's sexual and emotional enlightenment.

LCL has an amazing amount of economic discussion involving the transition of the coal mining industry to a more modern phase causing unemployment in England similar to current economic developments concerning our transition to less labor intensive industries. All of Lawrence's books have that tightly examined personal perspective that makes him the admired writer he is.

Enjoyed L. C's Lover as much as I did in the 1960's at which time it was banned by the Catholic Church and if my memory serves me correctly it was pulled from store book shelves at that time.
