9780140274295: Lady Chatterley's Lover (Essential Penguin)Lady Chatterley's Lover (Essential Penguin)

Lady Chatterley's upper-class husband has been rendered paralyzed and impotent. She crosses class and gender boundaries when she takes her gamekeeper as a lover. The novel remained unpublished for thirty years in the UK because of its explicit discussion of sexuality.

Review:

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 game keeper who works for the estate owned by her wheelchaired 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, that Lawrence was a masterful and lyrical writer, whose story takes us bodily into the world of its characters.

Book Description:

The Cambridge edition of Lady Chatterley's Lover is the first ever to restore to Lawrence's most famous novel the words that he wrote. Removing corruptions and errors and including hundreds of new words, phrases and sentences - this is the only text that can be read or quoted with confidence.
