Subject of an infamous obscenity trial, Lady Chatterley's Lover is now regarded as one of the pivotal novels of the twentieth century.

Clifford Chatterley returns from the First World War as an invalid. Constance nurses him and tries to be the dutiful wife. However, childless and listless she feels oppressed by their marriage and their isolated life. Partly encouraged by Clifford to seek a lover, she embarks on a passionate affair with the gamekeeper, Mellors. Through their liaison Lawrence explores the complications of sex, love and class.

Written in 1928 and subsequently banned, Lady Chatterley's Lover is one of the most subversive novels in English Literature.

A masterpiece * Guardian *
Does for D H Lawrence what Jack the Ripper did for Gladstone bags and stovepipe hats -- Neil Gaiman
He was a big influence on me - I loved the seriousness and intensity he brought to his studies of human relationships, and the boldness with which he pushed the boundaries of what could be said and thought and written about in the novel -- Andrew Davies

“Interesting read...”

The novel lives up to the name it has gained for itself, a very engaging read that I would recommend for generations to come for an insight into class, gender and lust I guess, ha.
