9780140622508: Lady Chatterley's Lover (Penguin Popular Classics)

Constance Chatterley is unhappy. Married to an invalid, she is almost as inwardly paralysed as her husband Clifford is below the waist. It is not until she finds refuge in the arms of Mellors the game-keeper, that she feels regenerated, and together they move towards an inner world of fulfillment.

Perhaps the most famous of Lawrence's novels, the 1928 Lady Chatterley's Lover is no longer distinguished for the once shockingly explicit treatment of its subject matter--the adulterous affair between a sexually unfulfilled upper-class married woman and the gamekeeper who works for the estate owned by her husband. Now that we're used to reading about sex, and seeing it in the movies, it's apparent that the novel is memorable for better reasons: namely, Lawrence's masterful and lyrical writing, and a story that takes us bodily into the world of its characters.


* This abridgement is masterfully done and Emilia Fox reads even the most shuddering parts with dignity and authenticity. The Observer
